Iain Butcher, Sean Watson, Rhys Pagan Back on 3/9

Following a previous successful joint promotion last February in the Wishaw Sports centre, Chris Gilmour and Paul Graham stage their next joint venture in the new state of the art regional sports facility at Ravenscraig in Motherwell on Saturday March 9th. This will be the third time the venue has been used for professional boxing and it is also used frequently for amateur boxing tournaments

“It will be a bumper bill with possibly up to ten fights on the card with hopefully a few all Scottish contests and maybe even a Scottish title fight” Said Prospect Boxing's Paul Graham.

“It’s early days just now but Chris, myself and Chris’s father Tommy Gilmour MBE will be sitting down and discussing what fighters will be available and if possible who can fight who from their respective camps. Looking through the respective roster's, there are some good match ups.

Initially pencilled in for the card is Iain Butcher, Sean Watson and Rhys Pagan from Prospect Boxing, while Chris Gilmour's will also showcase Jordan McCorry, Darren McAdam and Gary McCallum.

With six fights already added to the card, Paul Graham anticipates that further fighters will be added including a title fight “I have a couple of débutantes that will probably be on the bill should they be licensed in time by the BBB of C and I think that Chris has ideas for another couple of his stable.

He adds “March 9th will be a cracking start to the next season with some all Scottish  fights for some and testing fights for others. This year Scottish boxing was quite vibrant considering the current economic climate, so lets hope that it can continue into 2013.

More details will be revealed after the new year.
