Exclusive: Jordan Dennis aims to build on Joy Joyce undercard win this weekend in Maidstone
Jordan Dennis fights in Maidstone Leisure Centre for his fourth professional bout this weekend and looks to impress the crowd before stepping up to area level.
In October, Dennis featured on the Joe Joyce debut undercard and told WBN he’is looking for more similar opportunities to show people what he can do.
“Yeah those are the shows that I really want to be on and those are the ones that I’ll likely shine on even more so,” Dennis exclusively told World Boxing News. “That’s why it’s nice to get out nice and early in the year this February and locally. I haven’t fought locally in a long time so I just grab the opportunity and I know Joe [Elfidh] puts on a good show in Kent.”
On Elfidh’s promotional efforts, Dennis added: “He’s doing good things for Kent boxing so it was good to grab the opportunity on one of his shows and plus people who hadn’t been able to travel to London and watch me, get to watch me.”
Dennis with a record of 3-0 [1 KO] looks to continue his winning run and has worked hard in the gym for the year ahead, as he outlined by saying: “I’m just going out there and doing what I do really. I just take each one as it comes.
“I feel good enough and ready at this stage so I’ll go out and impress them, I’ll be showing off my skills.
“Training hard, down to business really and alongside my trainer, just been working hard in the gym. It’s been going well.”
Since his professional debut in October 2016, Dennis has impressed in the early stages of his career, but is in no rush but hopes to claim an area title just yet.
“I wanna keep busy this year so after this; hopefully I can get out again April or May time. Keep me busy this year and late this year or early next year we’ll push on for some area titles.
“I feel like I’m ready now but at the same time, you obviously need to take into consideration longer rounds and just the experience.
“Boxing is a marathon – it’s not a sprint, so I’ve got time on my hands so we’ll take each way as it comes but definitely pushing on for titles this year/early next year,” he added.
