Billy Morgan Proudly Represents East End Tradition

Hot prospect Billy Morgan is looking to the East End’s tradition of great boxers as an inspiration as he looks to continue the successful start to his professional career.

The East End has a great boxing history and Morgan is aiming to follow in the footsteps of Terry Spinks, Nigel Benn and Kevin Mitchell.

Ahead of his fourth professional fight the unbeaten super-featherweight Billy Morgan has been training with father and son duo Jimmy and Mark Tibbs in Canning Town.

Morgan features on a four-round contest at the York Hall on Francis and George Warren's first show for Queensberry Promotions on Friday 30th September.

“It's great being a boxer and growing up in the East End of London,” Morgan proclaimed. “There is so much boxing tradition, with many great fighters coming from the area. As well as the great names of the past there are many current fighters from the East End doing well. I’ve had the opportunity to train with the likes of Kevin Mitchell and Colin Lynes. For someone just getting their professional career underway, it's great to train and spar with guys of that calibre and they are great role models for me.”

Training with the likes of Kevin Mitchell and Colin Lynes, who have held titles at a number of levels, has given Morgan the inspiration to go and fight for belts himself.

“I definitely want to follow in their footsteps,” Morgan said. “I want to fight for the British and Commonwealth titles and hopefully the European and World titles. My dream is to fight for a world title in London.”

“Preparations have been going very well,” he continued. “I’ve been training for six weeks now both in the gym and on the road.

“I’m fit and strong and I’m ready for anyone, and I’m confident I can beat anyone they put in front of me.”  

Being and East End boy from Canning town, Morgan enjoys performing at the famous York Hall venue in the heart of the East End.

“I love the York Hall, the atmosphere there is unbelievable,” he said. “I have boxed there as both an amateur and pro."

“Professional boxing at the York Hall, nothing else compares to it and the atmosphere is fantastic."

“While I’m only young and going up in the rankings it’s great to fight in front of my own people and to get the whole of east London behind me.”

A quality packed card is headlined by the exciting clash between Commonwealth Super-Featherweight Champion Liam Walsh and Paul Appley; chief support is Ryan Toms' Southern Area Light-Middleweight title defence against Steve O'Meara; plus cruiserweight Tony Conquest, super-featherweight Billy Morgan, light-welterweight Peter McDonagh, lightweight Liam Shinkwin and the pro-debut of light-welterweight Eddy Hussein.
