Jordan Smith set for professional debut

Debutant flyweight, Jordan Smith is all set for his professional debut at the Camden Centre, Kings Cross on November 21 against newly announced opponent, Brett Fidoe.

The Peacock Gym fighter, Jordan Smith’s opponent was only confirmed this week as Staffordshire’s Ben Fideo 2(1)-12-2 – 23-years-old and ranked 10th in the British super-flyweight division.

Fidoe has been in with a number of prospects since turning pro in 2012 such as Haroon Khan – younger brother to two-time world champion, Amir Khan, and also unbeaten prospects Louis Norman and Anthony Smith, who both meet for the vacant British Masters flyweight title on December 7th at Hermitage Leisure Centre in Whitwick.

He also took former Commonwealth super-flyweight champion, Don Broadhurst the distance for the vacant BBBofC Midlands Area title at Villa Park in March this year, losing 94-98 on points.

The 21-year-old debutant from Chadwell Heath, Essex is not overly bothered about his opponent’s statistics, even knowing that he has stopped a debutant in the first round once before.

Concentrating more on his own fitness and ability, Smith commented, “Brett Fidoe is the opponent and I’ve heard he’s 5ft 2” and had 12 losses-2 wins from somewhere in England.” He continued, “I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt, been taught how to use my hips more to get more power off and I’ve been training with Darren Barker’s strength and conditioning coach.” On his first ever training camp as a professional boxer, Smith said, “Training camp has gone brilliantly, I couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

“All the sparring has been good. I had my best sparring with Iain Bailey at the TKO Gym, he’s going for vacant English featherweight title next month. He was more my weight so let his shots go. Sparring with Ahmet Patterson, a welterweight, was different, he was sharp but wouldn’t let his shots go so Bailey worked me more.”

Originally hailing from Ipswich, Smith currently residing in Chadwell Heath, Essex boxes out of the Peacock Gym in London with teammates, Sam Stokes, Ovill McKenzie, Romeo Romaeo and Ahmet Patterson. As Smith enters the ring on Friday 21st November, he will also make records as the tallest flyweight in the country, standing at 5ft 10” tall.

The lofty prospect concluded, “I’m going to enjoy the night and I’m looking forward to watching Dillian Whyte to see what level he’s at to be calling out Anthony Joshua. I want to say thanks to all my trainers and all the Peacock Gym team and ESX Muscle.” 

The combined Mark Prior Promotions and Hellraiser Promotions show sees the return of heavyweight power-puncher, Dillian White who is looking for a collision course with Anthony Joshua soon.

Hard-hitting heavyweight prospect, Dillian Whyte 9(6)-0-0 will be guaranteed to bring excitement to the show with six of his last seven fights ending in a KO victory for the aptly named Brixton ‘Villain’.

Essex light heavyweight, Sam Stokes 1-0-0, Oxfordshire cruiserweight, Michael Lobb 1-0-0 and welterweight Joe Hayes 1-0-0 from Bournemouth all look to double their win ratios after successfully launching their pro careers at the same venue last summer.

Super bantamweight, Junior Saaed 1-0-0 will be making his third pro outing on this show as he fights on October 23rd in Park Lane Hotel as well.

Super middleweight, Darryll Williams 7(1)-0-0 will look to extend his unbeaten run as the 24-year-old from Forest Hill, currently ranked in the top 40, continues his measured climb up the rankings.

Southpaw, George Michael Carman 15-1-1 enters into his 18th contest in almost five years as a pro and still only 22-years-old.

Thatcham’s unbeaten cruiserweight, Marley Churcher 2(1)-0-0 makes his return to the ring after exactly one year’s absence fighting last on November 22nd when he defeated Mario Lakatos on points. Exciting light heavyweight Yasin Basar 3(1)-0-0 looks to carry on the blistering impetus set so far in his pro career as he embarks on his fourth fight in four months. Welterweight Tommy Tear 3-0-0 looks to round off his first year as a pro with a fourth straight win.

Middlewight, Myles Cash 2(1)-0-0 fights for the first time this year after a 16 month hiatus from the square ring fighting last in June 2013 as he made short work of Danny Brown at the York Hall with a first round TKO. Prizefighter finalist, Dale Evans 8(3)-1-2 looks to edge ever closer to entering the top 10 in the welterweight division as he embarks upon his 12th pro fight. The Bulgarian from Barnet, Angel Banev 2-0-0 looks to continue his unbeaten run in the light middleweight division.
