Kane Baker aims to continue progress on June 9 in fourth outing

Craig Birch 01/06/2017

Kane Baker is feeling light on his feet as he prepares to lace on the pro gloves again for a boxing date in Dudley next week.

The Brummie welterweight, from Bartley Green, is back in action at the Venue on the town’s high street for next Friday’s fight night (June 9), writes Craig Birch.

The 26-year-old reckons he will make the 147lb cut easily, after staying in decent shape since his last contest at the same venue in April.

Baker made it three points wins without reply when he defeated Yaddollah Ghasemi, without conceding any of the four rounds after an entertaining battle.

The former unlicensed fighter showed courage and durability as the two traded punches and moved well to make room for his own attacks.

He added the result to victories over the most experienced active pro in the country, Kristian Laight, and fellow hardman Dan Carr.

He now takes on Yorkshireman Danny Little, another opponent who boxes regularly, and is looking to go up the gears again over four.

Baker said: “They’ve all been different fights and the opponents are definitely getting better. The last one was really tough.

“I’d like them to keep coming as they have done, because it’s making me box and fight better. Ghasemi was game and that made for entertainment.

“I’m not really bothered about knockouts, in one way, but it does get you noticed. I just want to keep winning and for my fans to have a good time.

“I want to go up the levels by testing myself, training has gone well and I was a lot lighter than normal to begin with, so I’ve been able to concentrate on technique more.

“Im pleased that I’m improving and looking back to see how I’ve got better. My chin got tested last time, but I knew that would help me when I come into the pro game.

“I’ve had a lot of interest from people who want to come and see me and anyone who would like to can get on the journey.”

Tickets, priced at £35 and £50 ringside with waitress service, are available now by calling Kane directly on 07799 633 579. Alternatively, contact him on Facebook.
