Shutout points win for Price on JE Promotions’ ‘Showtime’ card in Worksop

Sheffield lightweight prospect Sonny Boy Price moved up to 6-0 with a 40-35 points win over Carl ‘Tiger’ Turney (0-2) from Bognor Regis on the five-fight ‘Showtime’ card at North Notts Arena on April 13.

Price, 22-years-old from Swallownest, was in complete control and Turney had one point deducted in the fourth round for persistent holding.

He said on Facebook post-fight, "I made it to 6-0, I’d like to thank God me and my opponent got out safe and back to our families. Thank you to everyone that came out to support without you it all wouldn’t be possible."

The South Yorkshire prospect, trained by Michael White at the Fighting Fit Gym, was a standout amateur winning seven Yorkshire titles when boxing out of the Steel City Gym.

He has managed to win all 24 of the professional rounds he has boxed so far in his six professional bouts, starting with his debut in November 2017.

Price is looking to line up a title shot this year and has staunch ambitions to become a British champion.

The JE Promotions in association with Scott Calow Boxing saw all five home fighters come away with a win.

Unbeaten Ryan Stevenson, 25 from Armthorpe, also moved up to 6-0, in his first six-rounder. He KO’d Sheffield’s Dan West (5-6-2) with a heavy left hook to the head, which was the only knockout of the night.

Trained by Ian Alcock at the Doncaster Boxing Academy, the six-foot-tall welterweight has been highly impressive so far in his career and is hoping to line up a title shot soon.

From the same stable, Doncaster lightweight Josh Padley (1-0) won all four rounds of his professional boxing debut against former Sonny Boy Price opponent Jamie Quinn (5-82-2).

‘Paddy’ picked up Yorkshire titles in the amateur scene and settled into the paid ranks seamlessly with the landslide points win.

Another debutant, Cameron Kaihau (1-0), was made to work hard against former soldier Lewis van Poetsch (8-99-1), winning by a single point scored at 39-38.

Kaihau is a Yorkshire amateur champion and ABA Novices finalist trained by his dad Si at Mexborough ABC. Boxing runs in his blood as his grandfather was a professional boxer in the 1950's and 60's.

Nottingham’s Jordan Ringham (2-0) was also tested by his experienced opponent - former Central Area middleweight champion Darryl Sharp (5-50). Ringham,  a 26-year-old super-middleweight from Nottingham, won 39-37 on points.

Jordan Ringham and Sonny Boy Price both fight next on July 6 at the Harvey Hadden Sports Centre in Nottingham on the undercard Chad Sugden vs Sebastian Slusarczyk for the vacant Midlands Area light-heavyweight title.
