Unbeaten Sean Robinson and Joshua Ejakpovi will meet for the vacant Southern Area super-welterweight title

Goodwin Boxing's Sean Robinson (8-0) takes on Joshua Ejakpovi (12-0) for the vacant Southern Area Super-Welterweight title on March 9 at the iconic York Hall.

The pair share two common oponents in Italian Victor Edagha, who fought both just one month apart - Robinson in March 2017 in his opponent's second paid bout and Ejakpovi shortly after in April - and the incredibly skilled and experience Wiliam Warburton, who is now a 184-fight veteran. All four of those fights ended in points wins for Robinson and Ejakpovi. Robinson has not yet scored a stoppage win during his two-year pro career, whereas six-foot-one southpaw Ejakpovi has dispatched three of his foes, resulting in a 25% KO ratio and a top-20 ranking.

'Hollywood Josh', 32 from Marylebone, is managed by London promoter Mickey Helliet and will enter the ring as the away fighter against Goodwin's unbeaten prospect Sean Robinson, 23 from Seven Kings after Steve Goodwin won purse bids on January 8 to secure yet another Area title fight for the packed event.

The Goodwin Boxing event now promises three Southern Area title fights all on the same show.

Another unbeaten Goodwin boxing prospect in 22-year-old lightweight Liam Dillon (8-0) will also challenge for a Southern Area title against David Birmingham (8-3) for the 135lbs strap.

Dillon has briskly amassed an eight-fight undefeated record since making his debut in April 2017 and now takes a big step up to take on former Area lightweight challenger in David Birmingham.

Whilst only stopping one of his eight opponents, Dillon has an all-action style which is more suited to the longer rounds which he believes will be the crucial factor in this contest with the tough Portsmouth puncher.

Danny Couzens (10-11-2) gets a fourth crack at the Southern Area cruiserweight title against Londoner Daniel Mendes (8-1).

A whopping 19 fights fill the card, with 10 of those featuring unbeaten prospects and two exciting young debutants.
