Iain Butcher Returns on June 6th Against Former Commonwealth Title Challenger Isaac Quaye

After seeing his British title fight against current champion Kevin Satchell postponed due to an ankle injury, Iain Butcher (10-1) will continue his assault on the flyweight division when he takes on tough Ghanaian Isaac Quaye in an eight round contest on June 6th.

Butcher, the current WBO European flyweight champion, is relishing the challenge of the respected Quaye (25-5-1, with 16 KOs) at the Ravenscraig Sports Facility in Motherwell.

The 22 year-old, who has stopped four of his opponents, said: Its good to be back on June 6th and Im excited at the prospect of taking on a quality operator like Quaye. Ive seen a few of his fights and Ive no doubt Im in for a tough night.

Quaye took Kevin Satchell the full 12 rounds in March of this year in a Commonwealth championship challenge, so we know that he can fight.

Hell be looking to win to put himself back in contention for the Commonwealth title, but while its going to be a hard fight Ive no doubt Ill come out on top.

Butcher's promoter and manager, Paul Graham, admitted his man is facing a dangerous test, but he explained it has been hard to get a worthwhile opponent.

Weve had a few opponents in Europe on our radar for Iain, but no one seems to be interested in fighting him, Graham said.

We tried to make the British title fight with Satchell, but hes injured at the moment so that has put Iain's opportunity back a few months.

Its important to keep Iain active, so we extended the search a bit further and made the offer to Quaye's team and they accepted. Its important to get Iain in with a worthwhile opponent because he will gain nothing at this stage in his career by blowing away weak opposition and I think he will gain valuable experience from fighting a tough African.

Graham, who jointly promotes the event with Chris Gilmour Boxing, added: Iain is currently ranked number nine by the WBO, so a win against a more experienced fighter such as Quaye will also help push him up the rankings.

Iain has recently had a training camp in Marbella and has taken on board a the services of a dietician, so its really coming together for him.

Iain Butcher takes on former Commonwealth title challenger Isaac Quaye as he returns to the Ravenscraig Sports Facility, Motherwell on Friday, June 6th. The card also features another 13 bouts.

Also in action are Rhys Pagan, Shaun McShane, JP McGuinness, Scott Edgar, George Thomson and Michael McGurk.

Scottish lightweight champion Jordon McCorry is scheduled to appear along with Ryan Love, Gary Murray, James Thomson, Lee Gallacher, Craig Kelly and former Commonwealth title challenger Eddie Doyle.

Tickets are priced at 30 for unreserved and 50 ringside (includes waitress service), whilst 75 VIP tickets include food, complimentary drinks and waitress service.

Tickets are available from the boxers direct or by calling 01698 338 888.
