One of the North East’s, and the UK’s, best prospects should get a first opportunity to fight in front of his home fans next month.

Sedgefield’s Bradley Saunders is 7-0 with five KOs and has had pundits and fans raving with some blistering performances. The 2008 Olympian hasn’t yet had a chance though to perform in the region, until now.

Newcastle promoter Steve Wraith has teamed up with Francis Warren to provisionally confirm November 22 at the Gateshead Leisure Centre for Saunders’ homecoming, with the show being televised on the BoxNation TV channel shortly after.

“I’m very excited,” revealed Wraith, who is hoping to officially announce the show imminently. “I’m on cloud nine. It’s taken a lot of discussion over the last few months. Dean Powell, God rest his soul, had played a big part in it, as has Bradley Saunders. I’ve known Bradley for a long time. Before I became a professional promoter Bradley said ‘if you ever become a pro promoter then we’ll work on these things together’.

“So it’s been a collective enterprise. I introduced myself to Francis Warren 12 months ago and he’s obviously kept an eye on what we’ve been doing over the last year. So I’m delighted, and having the Warren and Wraith Promotions collaboration can only be a good thing for boxing in the North East.

“BoxNation has become very popular amongst fans up here, so to have a highlights show going out after our promotion is great and will raise the profile of the fighters on our bill. We’re hoping for an exciting bill with [Simon] Vallily, Josh Leather and Bradley Saunders, and we’ll sort out another few fights from the region.

“It will showcase North East boxing and hopefully people will get behind boxing in the region. There are a lot of fighters out there with big support but we want fans from Sunderland, Newcastle, Darlington, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough getting behind all the North East fighters and making this a hotbed of boxing, which it can be. It’s about being as one and supporting our local talent, and let’s hope we can start with that on the 22nd November.”
