Miles Shinkwin to defend English light-heavyweight title to Kirk Garvey

English light-heavyweight champion Miles Shinkwin (15-4), 30 from Bushey, has agreed to a voluntary defence to Kirk Garvey (11-2), 28 from Clapham, on March 2 at the York Hall in Bethnal Green.

Shinkwin won the title with a unanimous points decision over old rival Joel McIntyre last December at the same East End venue, completing the trilogy which ended at 2-1 to Shinkwin. No the six-foot-tall Bushey boxer enters into his maiden title defence against the taller Garvey, who lost his last fight to unbeaten Andre Sterling for the vacant Southern Area light-heavyweight title last November.
