Ashley Silver raring to go as pro debut looms
Chelmsley Wood super welterweight, Ashley Silver cannot wait to make his professional boxing debut this weekend.
After a mixed bag in the amateurs, Silver feels the time is right to try his fists in the paid ranks. Trained by Paul Webb, and working alongside the likes of Jordan Clayton, Silver debuts on BCB Promotions’ ‘Second City Slickers’ on Saturday evening.
“I’m really looking forward to my professional debut now,” he told bcb-promotions.com. “It’s been a long time coming. My amateur career wasn’t the best but Paul Webb has been finding new gears in me and pushing me to new levels.
I have been doing loads of sparring with Jordan Clayton – all in house work. I’m feeling great.”
Silver already has one of boxing’s best nicknames. ‘Hi-Ho’ ringwalks to ‘Hi-Ho Silverlining’ and can’t wait to hear his name ring around the Holiday Inn Birmingham this weekend.
“I can’t wait for Saturday,” he admitted. “I’ve watched Jordan top a few bills there and I’m looking forward to following in his footsteps.
“I do look up to Jordan as he is a really good, unbeaten prospect. I can learn from him.
I’ve had the nickname for years now from my time in the amateurs! I cant wait to hear my fans singing along on Saturday!”
Undefeated Birmingham welterweight, Jordan Clayton (6-0) tops the bill.
Former WBC International Super Bantamweight Champion and English Super Bantamweight King, Sean Davis (12-1), is joins Clayton on the show, which takes place on Saturday, 22nd July.
Two other debutants complete the card as Birmingham cruiserweight Matt Sen, and Brummie heavyweight Nathan Stevens both feature.
