Exciting prospect Josh Adewale (1-0) is promising a special performance when he returns to the ring next week for his second professional fight.

Adewale competes at York Hall against 'The Guv'nor of Middleton' Casey Blair (5-48) on Febraury 22 and he’s looking to build on the impressive win he picked up in his debut against Liam Griffiths in November.

He said: “Now that the debut is out of the way I feel that I can get down to business. On my debut I looked at it differently and was doing things I didn’t need to do, but for this one I want to take care of it properly.

“I had a week or two off after my debut but then I was straight back into training and I was working hard the way through Christmas. I prefer to be busy so I can’t wait to get back in the ring.

“It’s going to be good to fight at York Hall. I meant to fight there as an amateur but didn’t get the decision I should have got, so I missed out on that chance.

"Most of the fights I’ve watched have been there, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s been a good transition from amateur to professional. As an amateur I did a lot of stuff on my own and didn’t have must of a routine, but now things are structured and everything is good.

"I get an extra push from everybody around me, and I can’t wait to display my skills next week.”

Adewale is part of a packed bill at York Hall that will be shown live on iFL TV, and features a WBO European welterweight title fight between Paddy Gallagher and Freddy Kiwitt in the main event.

A number of talented stars are also in action on the undercard, including Dan Azeez, Danny Dignum, Siar Ozgul, Liam Wells, Jack Ewbank, Huzaifah Iqbal, Michael Elliott and many more.
