Des Newton tops Fireworks At The Guildhall on Nov 5

Ringside 26/10/2017

BCB Promotions’ ‘Fireworks At The Hall’ takes place at Plymouth Guildhall on the afternoon of Sunday, 5th November, as the fireworks start early on fireworks night!

The event is again sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Plymouth, who will host the weigh-in and Aftershow Party.

Popular Plymouth lightweight, Des Newton, tops the bill as he defends his British Challenge Lightweight Title against Hereford’s Dean Evans.

will once again be in action. ‘The Destroyer’ has twice successfully defended his British Challenge Title – against Andy Harris and Liam Richards – as he sets his sights on a Southern Area Title shot.

Newton is joined by fellow Plymouth pugilists – super lightweight Darren Townley and lightweight Louis Aitken. Townley will be looking to bounce back from his Challenge Title defeat at the fists of Ibrar Riyaz last time out when he steps in with Worcester’s Michael ‘Mad Man’ Mooney whilst Aitken will be looking to build on his impressive debut in May. Aitken faces Gloucester’s Andy Harris.

There’s another Battle of Devon as Exeter’s Faheem Khan, who out gunned Plymouth’s Ross Roberts last summer takes on Plymouth Cristian Hoskin-Gomez for a British Challenge Title.

Khan, who defeated Dylan Draper at the venue in July, will be looking to prove himself as the best welterweight in the region. Hoskin-Gomez though will have other ideas. The 22 year-old is 12 years Khan’s junior and is dropping down in weight in order to claim local bragging rights.

Launceston super lightweight Jordan Platt, like Aitken, will be looking to build on his impressive May debut. Platt takes on Liam Melksham’s Liam Richards.

Torquay super middleweight, Nathan Halton, steps in with Wiltshire’s Rob ‘Bomber’ Brown whilst Newquay super middleweight, Brad Pauls, faces Birmingham-based Cameroonian Emmanuel Moussinga.
