Sean Davis moves down to featherweight for July 11 return

UKO Boxing 29/06/2015

Sean Davis is hoping for big things after dropping down to featherweight. The 25 year-old has plied his trade at super featherweight since turning professional but now, fully acclimatised to life in the paid ranks, the likeable Brummie boxer is feeling fighting fit.

“Dropping to feather has just come naturally to me,” he explained to www.uko-boxing.com. “It’s not something I necessarily planned to do but I feel great.

“For the first time, I’d say what I eat and drink is spot on its making a massive difference to me. When I turned pro 18 months ago I started strength and conditioning training at Xtreme Training Centre in Cannock where my brother is the manager.

“Xtreme have helped me and the nutritional advice is paying off.”

Davis is back in action, in Cannock, in two weeks time. He fights on Black Country Boxing’s ‘Hunt Is On’ Show at The Chase Leisure Centre on Saturday, 11th July.

‘Showtime’ has won all six of his contests to date and, although confident of making it a seventh straight win; he’s not taking anything for granted.

“I’m waiting on the confirmation but I’ve been told my opponent is a very tough Croatian lad that comes to win,” he added. “I’ll respect him. I don’t really look into the records or names; I prepare myself for everything that anyone could throw at me so when fight night comes nothing is a surprise.

“I’ve had some quality sparing in Leicester with Louis Norman and plenty of rounds at Wednesbury Boxing Academy and of course my own Prospects Gym with Mark Wall. I learn from every session I have. I’m looking forward to 11th July now.”

Stafford’s Rob Hunt tops the bill as he defends his Midlands Area Welterweight against Sleaford’s Amir Unsworth.

Telford’s Tony Jones, managed by Kellie Maloney, has also been added to a card that sees debutant, Zach Parker, as chief support. After a glittering amateur career, which saw him win two national titles, the Swadlincote scrapper turns over at middleweight.

Tipton featherweight, Lee Glover, features alongside Halesowen’s exciting middleweight, Lennox Clarke. Wolverhampton duo Joshua Burke and Sid Bowater are also in action whilst Dudley light middleweight Ryan Aston, Stoke light welterweight, Kieron McLaren, and Iran-born lightweight, Alex Dilmaghani, complete the card.
