Local boxing talent in Banks's Stadium action in February...WALSALL FC will host professional boxing next month.
Undefeated trio Lennox Clarke, Des Bowater and Kieron McLaren are all in action at the Banks’s Stadium as they appear on Black Country Boxing’s ‘Triple Threat’ three-fight dinner show in the Stadium Suite on Saturday, 21st February.
Halesowen Super Middleweight, Lennox Clarke (6-0), tops the bill as he goes in search of a first title. The 23 year-old faces Trowbridge’s Dan Blackwell over eight three-minute rounds hoping to secure a British Bronze Masters Title.
“Dan Blackwell is game and he comes to have the row which is good for me,” Clarke told www.saddlers.co.uk. “I watched him fight my mate, Andy Robinson, and he gave him a good test so I expect him to do the same for me. At the end of the night though, I will be the winner.”
Stablemate, Des Bowater (6-0), is joint top of the bill as he too goes in search of a British Bronze Masters Title. The Wolverhampton super featherweight takes on Leicester’s Lewis ‘2 Slick’ Jones.
“A title fight is what I have wanted for a while now and I can’t wait to get back in the ring,” ‘D-Bow’ added. “I’m an exciting fighter. It’s going to be a war with lots of punches thrown and hopefully a knockdown in this one.
“I’m confident I can adapt to whatever style he fights with. This will be my first eight rounder and people will get their monies worth that’s for sure.”
Completing ‘Triple Threat’ is Stoke light welterweight, Kieron McLaren (3-0). The 21 year-old takes on Tamworth’s Matt Seawright over six two-minute rounds.
“Everything is moving in the right direction and hopefully I can add to my undefeated record,” explained McLaren. “The more rounds I get the better I feel. At this stage of my career it’s nice to get them under your belt.
