John Loveday Has Big Dreams as Pro Debut Gets Closer

Heavyweight talent John Loveday will sit down on Saturday night to watch David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko slug it out for three world titles.

And the former soldier will go to bed after the fight dreaming that one day he might be a main attraction on a huge PPV event.

Loveday has many opponents to beat before such ambitions become a reality, but he's aiming to make a big impact on his pro debut on July 16.

Having seen action on the frontline in Afghanistan, punching for pay is not such a daunting prospect for Loveday.

Spotted in a Birmingham gym by manager Dean Powell, the 21-year-old is relishing the chance to earn his first pay cheque as an amateur.

He appears as part of the undercard at the Liverpool Echo Arena, with Nicky Cook's WBO super-featherweight title challenge against Ricky Burns headlining the bill.

"I am off and running and all I want to do is show what I can do," he told the Birmingham Mail.

"The heavyweight division already has some good up-and-coming lads and I want to make my mark.

"I have been in training with Errol Johnson and so far everything has gone well. I have enjoyed it and I am excited about doing well."
