Mark Heffron To Fight For Title on October 21

By Shaun Brown

Undefeated British super-middleweight prospect Mark "Kid Dynamite" Heffron (17-0, 13 KOs) will be fighting for a "major title" in October according to his manager Kevin Maree.

And Boxing Scene understands that it will take place on October 21 in Leeds on the undercard of Josh Warrington's next fight. A show that will be broadcast live on BT Sport as part of their multi-date deal with promoter Frank Warren.

The bill also features Jack Catterall challenging Tyrone Nurse for the British super lightweight title as well as Nathan Gorman and Nick Webb colliding for the vacant English heavyweight title.


Maree, who describes Oldham's Heffron as "the best prospect in world boxing" was training the 25-year-old before retiring to concentrate on managing fighters. Heffron is now trained by former two-weight world champion Ricky Hatton.  Hatton also trains the English 168lbs champion Darryl Williams.

After only two fights last year Heffron has been kept active in 2017 with four fights to date. His most recent outing coming on Saturday night (July 29) in Oldham when he outpointed his late replacement opponent Istvan Zeller over four rounds. The bout had been scheduled for eight rounds but was cut to four at late notice.

The domestic state of play in the British super middleweight division sees Rocky Fielding as the current British champion, and his first defence takes place on September 30 in Liverpool when he faces Commonwealth champion David Brophy.

Mark has to be one of the best-kept secrets in British boxing right now, but what is a major title these days? If Fielding & Brophy are getting it together then that's the British & Commonwealth title's out of the…
