Maidstone’s ‘Main Man’ Lenny Fuller (5-0) has his sixth professional contest at the Brentwood Centre in Essex tonight (May 11) on the undercard of world title contender Liam Walsh’s ring return after his two-year hiatus.
The 24-year-old super-welterweight from Kent, signed to JE Promotions, tackles Nicaraguan Geiboord Omier (4-39-1) in his second six-rounder.
His 30-year-old Central American opponent, based in Spain, recently took Harley Benn the distance earlier this year and has also extended former British welterweight champion Johnny Garton to the full six rounds in 2016.
Trained by Lee Page at the Maidstone-based Combat Sports Academy, Chart Sutton’s Fuller has so far experienced a whirlwind start to his paid career with six contests within his debut year punching for pay.
Tonight’s fight marks the eve of the anniversary of his pro debut on May 12, 2018. Since defeating Dale Arrowsmith (1-15-1) on his pro bow last year, the likeable boxer has recorded five points wins, racking up 22 rounds of experience all within his first year as a pro.
Opponents faced have all been the usual suspects, but he did give himself a tough assignment in his second pro bout against Central Area title contender Chris Jenkinson (10-57-3), conceding a round in the process, which remains the only round dropped so far.
He now returns to the scene of his second contest in Brentwood, with ambitions to continue his unbeaten run and finish the year on a title fight.
“By the end the of the year I want to have the Southern Area title, that’s my goal. I’m looking to get to 10-0 with the Area belt at the end of 2019.
“I’ll be fighting welterweight for championship fights, I can definitely do welter for championships, even if it was same day weigh-in.”
A former amateur boxer at Westry ABC, Fuller won titles in the IBA, EBA, UKBC unlicensed scene and competed in the Queensbury Boxing League before turning pro with manager Joe Elfidh.
