Unbeaten and always entertaining, Joe Laws has a point to prove at #MTKFightNight in Newcastle on February 29 – live on iFL TV.
‘The Benwell Bomber’ (8-0, 4 KOs) is back in action on a busy show at Eagles Arena, returning to the scene where one of Laws’ previous victories at the venue prompted a female to throw off her clothes and streak through the crowd in celebration.
With that in mind, the ebullient local is confident of generating even more remarkable scenes this time round.
Laws said: “I’m bringing streakers, cheerleaders – you name it; I’m bringing it all! It’s going to be fireworks in there, trust me.
“I always train hard. I’m a fitness freak. I believe I can make 135lb next year and take over the world. I’m not being arrogant or cocky – I’ve just got great belief in myself and my team. If I train hard, there’s no reason why not. I’ve got the support, so bring it on.
“Boxing in Newcastle can become massive in 2020. There’s myself and my gym-mate April Hunter making waves. You’ve got Josh Kelly, Lewis Ritson and Tommy Ward. It’s booming at the minute and I’m proud to be a part of it.
“The north-east is planning to take over boxing. We’ve got the stadiums and the arenas. Let’s fill them up. I’ve fought at the Eagles Arena twice now and both times it’s been absolutely electric. I’m bringing a big squad of fans. Newcastle doesn’t forget!”
Joining Laws vs. Pilkington is a Northern Area welterweight title fight between Chad Ellis and Ellis Corrie plus the likes of April Hunter, Adam Gair, Lawrence Osueke and many more.
