The card for BCB’s ‘No Guts, No Glory’ show, sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall, at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday has been finalised.
Walsall’s Golden Boy, Luke Paddock (15-2), headlines in an six-round contest. Paddock is back on the title trail in 2017 and has his eyes on Midlands, and English, honours. Standing in his way this weekend is Poland’s Lukasz Janik. The 28 year-old has been in with the likes of Robbie Davis Jr and Sam O’Maison and should give Paddock the rounds he needs to blow off the cobwebs in what will be his first fight of 2017.
Johnson’s latest signings, Black Country duo Ricky Summers (12-0) and Kyle Williams (3-0), also feature.
Wolverhampton bantamweight, Kyle Williams, steps in with Yorkshire‘s Craig Derbyshire looking to build on his perfect start to life in the paid ranks.
Light heavyweight Summers was slated to take on Frank Buglioni this weekend but an injury to the Wise Guy means that his British Title clash has been postponed. Having not fought since November, ‘Digger’ will step in with Lithuania’s 98-fight veteran, Remigijus Ziausys, as he warms up for his Lord Lonsdale shot later this year.
Old Hill super featherweight, Manny Zaber (8-1), will be looking to bounce back from a first professional defeat last time out when he faces Kent’s Ricky Leach.
Lauren ‘Black Widow’ Johnson makes her professional debut. The West Bromwich welterweight takes on Poland’s Monika Antonik.
Birmingham bantamweight, Ijaz Ahmed, takes on Estonia’s Sergey Tasimov looking to build on his professional debut victory in November.
Coventry heavyweight, Dilly Singh, completes the card. Singh takes on Lithuania’s Imantas Davidaitis. Tom Stokes, Tyler Denny and Dwain Grant no longer feature.
The weigh-in takes place at Grosvenor Casino Walsall at 1.00pm on Friday. All over 18’s welcome.
