Plymouth to host ‘No Love Lost: War of the Roses’ card on Feb 11

UKO 22/12/2016

Following three sell-out shows in 2016, Errol Johnson’s Western Country Boxing have announced their first show of 2017 in Plymouth.

A familiar line-up of Plymouth pugilists feature at Plymouth Guildhall on Saturday, 11th February.

‘No Love Lost: War of the Roses’ takes place over the Valentine’s Weekend.

Des ‘The Destroyer’ Newton tops the bill in an eight round contest after storming to victory in his last two Guildhall appearances. Impressive wins over Joe Beeden and Richard Walter in front of his army of supporters have convinced Johnson that lightweight Newton (3-0) is ready to make the step up in rounds.

Like Newton, Plymouth welterweight, Jack ‘The Ripper’ Bellingham, will be looking to make it a hat-trick of Guildhall win after disposing of Liam Wright and Rudolf Durica in his January and October appearances. The 26 year-old super lightweight (3-0) has three wins from three contests to date.

Plymouth lightweight, Darren ‘Terminator’ Townley, makes a welcome return to the Guildhall. ‘The Terminator’ featured in the January and July shows but missed out October as he featured in Torquay instead. The 29 year-old (4-1) suffered a surprise loss to Henry James on that occasion, so will be looking to make amends and get back to winning ways this time around.

Plymouth super featherweight, Chris Adaway, (6-24-2) takes on Bideford’s Ben Owen (1-0) in an intriguing battle of Devon. Adaway’s record doesn’t do the 23 year-old justice and he will be buoyed by a recent victory over Essex prospect Jack Healy and, of course, his Guildhall victory over Matt Seawright in October.

Exeter welterweight, Faheem Khan (9-9-2) is also in action alongside Launceston duo – welterweight, Wes Smith (1-0), and bantamweight, Marcus Hodgson (2-0). The pair both recorded victories in their October Guildhall bouts last time out.

Debutant, Dean Riley, completes the card, The Plymouth welterweight will be looking to follow in the footsteps of his fellow local boxers with a winning start to life in the paid ranks.

Tickets for ‘No Love Lost’ are £30 or £50 Ringside and are available by calling: 07958 398 355. Doors open at 6:30pm with boxing commencing at 7:30pm at Plymouth Guildhall, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 2AA.
