Unbeaten bantamweight prospect, Thomas Kindon 4-0 has been subject to a date change and now fights on July 4th on a Greg Steene show at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth.
Hailing from Guildford, Surrey, Kindon will enter into a four round super-bantamweight contest on American Independence Day in what will be his fifth fight in the paid ranks against an opponent yet to be confirmed.
The original event scheduled for June 26th in Portsmouth was cancelled due to the headlining boxer, Floyd ‘Pacman’ Moore sustaining an injury.
Kindon explained, “Floyd Moore injured his ankle and he was the main event of the night which was a shame as it was gonna be a good fight.
“I was a bit sick really as I was just reaching my peak but I’m out on July 4th now instead so it’s only a couple of weeks later so it’s not too bad.”
The 20-year-old prospect, originally from Leeds, has taken a positive approach to the frustrating news, stating, “I take it all as it comes, I learn as I go. It’s a bit more aggravating being so close to the date but it’s happened to me before so I’m used to it. Once we found out it was cancelled we managed to find another date straight away.”
The 5ft 4″ boxing star known as ‘The Pocket Rocket’ raced to four fights unbeaten since making his pro bow in June last year, scalping Francis Croes on his debut and Anwar Alfadli, Dmitrijs Gutmans and Sergejs Logins along the way, respectively.
Kindon trains out of the Guildford City Boxing Club where he also spent his entire amateur career winning six national titles as well as many other accolades.
In training, he has been gaining some valuable experience from a former Southern Area champion, he explained, “I’ve just been sparring Ian Bailey. I have to keep on my feet as he’s a bit heavier than me, we had a good spar, he caught me with a few good shots but I held my own.”
Kindon has fought all four fights in the professional ranks at four rounds so far and his fifth outing will be the first fight outside of Portsmouth.
An unfamiliar setting does not daunt the unbeaten prospect but the location does have its drawbacks, “It’s going to be harder to sell tickets because it’s a different date and it’s further away,” said Kindon.
The rest of the show features 27-year-old Kazahkstan-born German, Arthur Herman 15-1 up against Jason Ball 9-18-1 in an eight round middleweight contest.
Last year, the hard-hitting Hermann had an eventful 2014 knocking out six of his opponents whilst also suffering his first career loss on points to Robert Talerek 6-6-2 at the Camden Centre, London.
The only other eight-rounder of the night features talented middleweight, Nicky Jenman 12-8-1.
The Sussex southpaw has been victorious in his previous four fights collecting two titles along the way in the British Masters Bronze title at middleweight and light-middleweight, respectively.
Unbeaten welterweight, Mitch Buckland 8-0 from Cardiff takes part in a six round contest. The 22-year-old has not had the opponent named yet but all eyes will be on the young starlet who looks set for a bright future.
33-year-old Essex lad, Richard Horton 9-4 goes up against the tricky Alistair Warren 8-10-4 in a six round contest at super-middleweight.
Horton from Hawley has not won either of his fights this year losing to Miles Shinkwin and Paddy McDonagh, respectively so will be eager to finish the season on a win.
29-year-old Sam Couzens from Hampshire, 11-15-2 hasn’t tasted a win for well over a year so will be seeking to change his fortune against 30-year-old Surrey boxer, Darren McKenna 5-15-3 in a four round light-heavyweight bout.
Exciting middleweight prospect, Sam Stokes 3-0 from Essex will be looking to extend his unbeaten run when he faces Latvian, Martins Kukulis 12-46 over four rounds.
The 25-year-old Romany Gypsy from Essex enjoyed an unbeaten stint in the unlicensed circuit and this will serve as his first fight outside of London as a pro.
Brighton boxer, Ben Butler 1-0 will be looking to double his win tally in a four round light-middleweight encounter with 38-year-old, ‘Bad News’ Danny Brown 6-19-3.
Exciting welterweight prospect, Joe Hayes 4-0 gets tested in front of his home crowd over six rounds by Nottingham’s Fonz Alexander 3-14.
Another unbeaten local, Jake Gosling 5-0 takes on Lewis van Poetsch 5-21 in a four round middleweight fight.
Welshman, Zack Davies 3-0 gets Yorkshireman, Luke Keleher 2-2 in a four round light-welterweight contest.
‘Dangerous’ Danny Goode 13-8 has only won once in the last seven years so will be desperate to improve his record in a four round light-heavyweight contest with opponent to be confirmed.
Ireland’s number one ranked light-heavyweight, Paddy McDonagh 10-2 has been matched with Spanish-born Devonian, Christian Hoskins Gomez 1-5-1.
The 20-year-old Gomez from Plympton hasn’t won since his debut whereas southpaw, McDonagh comes in to the fight off the back of a win over the aforementioned, Richard Horton.
