Luke Paddock pitted against Andy Keates on September 4

The Bloxwich boxer faces Keates at his hometown football club, Walsall FC, on Friday, 4th September. Paddock lifted the belt back in December when he was a convincing winner against fellow undefeated fighter, Josh McLaren, in Burslem.

“It’s a fight I’m already looking forward to,” said Saddlers-supporting Paddock. “It seems like a long time since I won the belt and I can’t wait to defend it in my hometown, at my football club.”

It’s a fight that Keates, a stablemate of McLaren, is also relishing.

“I like Luke, he’s a nice boxer,” added the Stoke man. “He doesn’t like pressure though and that’s what he’s going to get. I beat him as an amateur and I plan on beating him as a pro.”

Paddock and Keates headline Black Country Boxing’s four-fight card in the Stadium Suite. Old Hill Lightweight, Manny Zaber, Gloucester light heavyweight, Scott Gibbins Jr, and Ludlow light middleweight, Craig Morris, also feature.
