Prizefighter - Light Heavyweights - 29/11/2011
The return of the prizefighter series brings us the Light Heavyweights.
22 year-old Travis Dickinson – younger brother of Cruiserweights II winner Jon-Lewis – has three knockouts under his belt from his seven wins so far, with his first victory coming against super-middleweights champ Patrick Mendy when the pair made their debuts back in March 2009.
Former Wales amateur captain Llewellyn Davies has five wins to his name with three KOs, 26 year-old Kent fighter Menay Edwards has four wins from his first four fights with one knockout and popular Romford man Billy Slate in undefeated after his opening two fights as he kicks off his career at 28.
Former British super-middleweight champion Tony Dodson returns to the fray on the back of two high-profile tilts at retaining the title in Liverpool against local rivals Paul Smith and Tony Quigley. St. Albans boxer Joe Smyth will be aiming to build on a 7-1 record and is joined by Surrey fighter Michael Banbula, the Pole who enters in the best run of form in his 40-fight career, currently unbeaten in his last five fights including a win over previous light-heavyweights champ Tony Oakey and a draw against Tony Jeffries that halted the Sunderland Olympic bronze medallists winning streak.
The final fighter in the line-up will be announced soon.
