Paul Archer Ready For Next Chapter on October 19th

Paul Archer kicks off a new chapter in his boxing career when he fights at the Rainton Meadows Arena on October 19.

Undefeated in seven, the Easington stylist has his first outing under the guidance of brother Ian on the Pro Box North East card and believes the region’s fight fans will now start to see the best of him.

“I’ve had a lot going on since my last fight,” explained Archer, 22, “like changing trainers and work, but now everything is sorted I’m raring to go. It hasn’t been ideal with the lack of momentum in my career but we’re looking to stay fit and get active now.

“Me and Ian are on the same page as to where we want to get to in boxing, and are looking at this next fight as fresh start. We’ve had 3 months training and had top quality sparring with Paul Truscott and Lee Mould, and I know people say it a lot but I’m definitely in the best shape of my career.”

Promoter Phil Jeffries has laid down the gauntlet – stating he only wants 50-50 fights on future shows.  With the headliner for the Rainton Meadows card coming in the shape of Kirk Goodings versus Paul Truscott for the English lightweight title; the Sunderland promoter is sticking to his word.

Competitive fights are also what Archer is looking for.  ‘The Cobra’ is desperate for meaningful future bouts and is delighted at the prospect of being stepped up by Jeffries in the future.

“I think it’s great for North East boxing.  Personally I want to be involved in big fights, and I think there could be some great contests out there which could happen after a couple more fights. This time next year I want to have an area title.”

Phil Jeffries stated: “Paul is a real talent.  He is always in good shape and I think he’s passed his apprenticeship now.  He’s undefeated in seven fights and it’s time to move him up to the next level where I think he will shine.  There are some really good contests out there for him, maybe a couple of local derby fights, and we’ll look to make those matches for him in the future.”

Pro Box North East presents Sunderland’s Kirk Goodings and Middlesbrough’s Paul Truscott contesting the vacant English lightweight title, as well as Martin Ward boxing for the Commonwealth bantamweight crown, at the Rainton Meadows Arena on October 19.

The rest of the Rainton Meadows card will feature some of the best unbeaten fighters from the region including Easington’s Paul Archer; South Shields’ Anthony Nelson; Sunderland’s Jonson McClumpha; Hartlepool’s Callum Winton and Mick Hadfield, and Horden’s Anthony Hardy.  Also appearing will be Edinburgh’s John McCallum.

Tickets are available from all boxers or by calling 0774 611 020.
