Ian Bailey-Dan Naylor Clash on July 27th at York Hall

The latest offering from Johnny Eames and the TRAD TKO Events crew, takes place at York hall in London on Saturday 27th July and will be headlined by the Ian Bailey versus Dan Naylor Southern Area Featherweight title clash.

Ian will be making the first defense of the title, he sensationally secured by a ninth round stoppage of Lewis Pettitt, back September last year.

Back in March, Dan Naylor unsuccessfully challenged Michael Devine for the Super Featherweight version of the regional title. Whilst the Gants Hill slugger may have been unsuccessful, he proved to be more than a handful, having sent Devine to the canvas in the first round.

No surprise I’m sure, that Johnny has stacked the undercard with the cream of the esteemed Mr. Eames’ famous East London fight factory.

Heading up the list of exciting young prospects from the TRAD TKO Gym is Canning Town’s very own unbeaten Welterweight Freddie Turner.

Freddie, whose career had been relatively static until signing with Johnny earlier this year, was due to have had his second outing under the TRAD TKO banner on June 1st, but unfortunately illness put paid to that.

Also unbeaten, in seven pro outings, is Tony ‘Oakey Kokey’ Oakey protégé Joel ‘El Toro’ McIntyre.

On the 27th July Joel returns to York Hall, the scene of his recent victory over Darren McKenna, in stunning form, having been the sparring partner for British and Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders for the past few weeks.

Joining Joel on the show is fellow unbeaten Pompey boy Andy Gatenby, who returns to action just a few weeks after beating Delroy Spencer.

Yet another unbeaten prospect on the card is St Neot’s teen sensation Tommy Martin. On the 27th July, Nineteen year old Martin will be making his fourth pro outing.

Also unbeaten and making his fourth pro outing is Dagenham’s Ediz (Eddie) Hussein.

Young Eddie is the son of, and coached by, former Commonwealth Lightweight Champion Mo Hussein. For those that remember watching the all action big punching Mo will be in pugilistic heaven, as young Eddie is a chip of the old block.

If you were at Johnny’s June 1st event, you will remember the sensational knockout performance of Johnny’s newest Heavyweight prospect, Paulius Kasiulevicius.

Back on June 1st it took the 24 year old Bognor Regis based Lithuanian stopped Czech Republic’s Frantisek Kynkal in just two minutes and twenty five seconds, after putting him down three times!!!

Making a most welcome return to the ring on July 27th is former British Light Welterweight title challenger, Michael Grant.

Michael has been on a forced sabbatical, due to injury, since June 2011. By his performances in sparring Michael, who has always been a seriously stylish boxer with Championship potential, will be coming back stronger and with some new weapons to his already stacked arsenal.

Also on the card are two of Johnny’s new youngsters making their professional debut.

The first is sensational West Ham based Irish amateur star Paul Upton.

Paul, a two time Irish National Champion, earned many accolades during his stellar amateur career including being crowned both the Dublin Champion and Ulster Senior Champion, as well as a silver medalist at the Four Nations.

Joining Paul on the night will be another teen sensation, Joe Stevens, who Johnny describes as a ‘great little stylist’.

Johnny also previously stated that he intended to move Joe along slowly, as he has the potential to go all the way, nuff said!
