Assassin Boxing announce two March dates on South Coast of England

Ringside 13/02/2018

Assassin Boxing Promotions are delighted to confirm the partnership with John Edwards and Joseph Pyle, as two fight dates have been confirmed to see Assassin return to promoting on The South Coast of England.

Having last staged a show in The UK in March 2017, Assassin Boxing have continued to promote in America and Mexico, and promote a show ‘Last Man Standing’ in Dublin, Ireland, on March 3rd 2018, but now with two shows confirmed for The UK in March 2018, the outfit are keen to continue to promote further down the line.

On March 17th, the show will be staged at the wonderful venue of Princes Hall, Aldershot, and will run in association with Surrey Clubs For Young People & NobleArt Boxing.

The show itself will be a mix of both professional and amateur bouts.

On the bill will be George Lamport (3-0) who looks to continue his impressive start in the pro ranks, having only debuted last year.

Derek Renfrew could move to 5-0 on the night, as he looks to be fast tracked to title level in 2018.

Further announcements of the card will be made shortly.

Tickets are priced at £35 and £120 (dinner) and can be purchased through admin@scyp.co.uk

While March 30th is a show that will have boxing fans in awe.

Staged at The Thistle hotel at Heathrow, the event will showcase some of the most exciting talent on the South Coast, in real meaningful fights.

John ‘The Don’ Brennan (7-5) is to fight for The GBU English Title. The super-welterweight who has an impressive 7 wins to his name will fight over 8 rounds for the title, having previously fallen short against the ever impressive Asinia Byfield.

The GBU has seen an emphatic rise in credibility, with their rankings ultimately fair, with the system showing the best boxers ranked accordingly and do not fall into political stances.

While Mayweather promoted Layla McCarther challenges for The GBU world title over in The States next month.

The organisation based in Germany has now expanded their titles from world, to inter and continental belts and now on a regional basis.

Also on the card is 6ft 5in heavyweight, Naylor Ball(4-0), who at just 20 years of age has already racked up 4 professional wins without defeat. Ranked 25th in The UK, it won’t be long till Ball comes across the likes of Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois, Dave Allen, Nick Webb and co in what is a fascinating division for prospects, domestically.

Having been out of the ring for 4 years, Darren Codona (7-2), who is still just 24, is eager to impress the middleweights around the country with another confident display. Having mixed it with the likes of Liam Walsh over 8 rounds, the talent and potential is there to see.

Jesse Eatson will make his pro debut on the night. More announcements expected soon.

Tickets for the show on Friday March 30th are priced at £40, £80(Dinner), and £100 (VIP)(Dinner)

Kaz Evans of Assassin Boxing commented:

‘We are delighted to be able to help put two great shows together along with John Edwards and Joseph Pyle. It is something new for us and both shows are shaping up very nicely. I am extremely excited to see John Brennan in his GBU title fight, and it is an honour to have the likes of Naylor Ball on the bill, their is so much talent on this bill.

We only promoted 1 show in The UK last year, and dipped our toes in across the pond. However this year, with Joe and John’s great plans, we would love to have at least 6 dates on the south coast of England.

While working with Red Corner Promotions in Ireland, we have successfully got terrestrial TV back on board with pro boxing for the first time in almost 10 years in Ireland, through TG4. We would ideally like to do 5 shows a year there.

While we have plans to get back to Mexico 3-4 times a year, and we are looking to explore the east coast of America, and some other great destinations.

With a huge amount of boxers wanting to join us, it is vital, we can turn around and say ‘we have 20 shows this year to get you on’ – adding on to that, getting them on the likes of Mickey Helliet shows, Ken Casey shows, Frank Warren shows, and Eddie Hearn shows.’’
