Jenkins is Ready To Put on a Show at Prizefighter Tourney

Chris Jenkins has been made a worthy favourite for the Betfair Prizefighter Light Welterweights III and one can easily understand why, as it will take a very good boxer to beat him and especially given the structure of the competition. Be assured - nobody in the line-up will be able to match his fitness!

Boxing has a rich heritage in South Wales and a breeding ground for boxing champions and this golden conveyor belt is about to produce another. Chris Jenkins (24), who hails from Maes Yr Hendre in Garnant under the guidance of trainer Ronnie Morris, is climbing the light-welterweight rankings in a manner most thrilling! He is currently displaying all the requisite traits essential for champion material including the most fantastic appetite to learn and work. Fused and aligned with his blazing hand speed, shot selection to the head and body and nimble footwork, it makes him a formidable opponent to those currently blocking his path.

Jenkins had a solid amateur pedigree having collected six junior Welsh titles, one gold and two silver medals at the Four Nations Games, three Welsh senior titles and a gold at the Canada Cup. He has competed at two Commonwealth Games and also the 2011 World Amateur Championships but his style of boxing has always been more suited to the professional game. To date he remains unbeaten, four of his seven wins have been by knockouts and on each occasion he has progressively impressed.

There is no uncertainty, this fighter will win the Welsh Title sooner rather than later before stepping up to take the British. Skill apart, he has already amassed world experience. At 17-years of age he became the youngest boxer from Wales ever to be selected for the Commonwealth Games. The Cwmgors Boxing Club prodigy was nominated into the flyweight berth for the March 2006 Melbourne, Australian games after giving many mature displays for one at such a tender age.

His manager and promoter Paul Boyce has no intention of rushing things, he appreciates the jewel in his midst, he knows he has a champion and wants the boxer to realise and fulfil his obvious potential. He said: "I think Chris could be the next Ricky Hatton, he won almost everything he could as an amateur, and he is destined for big things. He is a really talented boxer who I believe will be at least a British champion."

We first met Chris Jenkins four years ago when he was helping yours truly with a back complaint at a Sports Injury Clinic in Pontardawe, South Wales. There we witnessed his exuberance and commitment and were struck by his absolute love of the boxing game. He was born to fight. Since then we have followed his professional career very closely and there is every indication he is the real deal! We are a regular visitor to the Cwmgors Amateur Boxing Club where he trains and can confirm the excellent work that his happening there.

Remember, it was this writer who first gave you Nathan Cleverly as a Light-heavyweight world champion and we are now offering Chris Jenkins as a British champion, but first the Betfair Prizefighter Light Welterweights III. This competition has come at exactly the right time for him and he is in the best condition, physically and mentally, of his life.
