Undercard Highlights

There's a regional title fight on the same card as Grimsby's unbeaten Levi Giles (8-0, 3KOs) challenges for the vacant Midlands Area super-featherweight strap against an opponent yet to be confirmed.

 

Background

The show promoted by Dennis Hobson Promotions features an British title eliminator between once-beaten Marc Leach and former English bantamweight champion Thomas Essomba.

The Cameroonian is also a former Commonwealth flyweight titlist and won the WBA Continental bantamweight strap against a 9-0 Sean McGoldrick. His last fight, in October last year, ended prematurely via an unfortunate techical decision following an accidental head clash that meant 29-0 Thomas Patrick Ward couldn't continue. His previous contest before that in August last year, saw the southpaw go the distance over 12-rounds with Britain's newest world champion Sunny Edwards.

'Livewire' Leach has an age advantage of six years and hasn't lost since his pro debut seven years ago. He shocked everyone with a fine performance and points victory over 8-0 Qais Ashfaq in October last year, which was also a British title eliminator.

 

Quotes

Leach:  “I’ve had to do this the hard way, working full time as well as keeping the boxing going to support my family, but it’s made me a better boxer and I wouldn’t change it for nobody but time isn’t on my side! With a bit more support and that one chance, I know 100% I will make it big.”

 

Predictions

Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “Thomas Essomba has had plenty of success in his career and still suprises top prospects. I think that Leach wants this so badly that he won't be surprised by anything. He works hard and he wants this badly, and he deserves it after winning the last eliminator. I think he defeats Essomba on points in a close, energetic battle.”
