Boma Brown back out on January 27
Undefeated heavyweight prospect “Bomber” Boma Brown (2-0, 1KO) is preparing for his next pro fight on January 27th at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, on the undercard of the Quaise Khademi (10-1-2, 4KO) vs Jackson Chauke (23-3-2, KO) IBO World flyweight title fight event.
His opponent on the WBM / Neilson Boxing co-promotion show is yet to be named, but the 240-pounder is just pleased to be busy so early on in the New Year, “I'm buzzing to be back out so early on in the year, I stayed in the gym all over Christmas. I'm just excited to be out and York Hall is a famous venue as well, so it's good to be on there.
“Thanks to Paul [Stevenson] and to Frank [Warren] as well for getting me on the show, and I'm really looking forward to putting on a standout performance.”
The 6ft 5in fighter from Watford impressed in his TV debut appearance on TNT Sports in his last fight at the Telford International Centre in July 2023. The Londoner stopped Jake Darnell (2-21) after two rounds of complete domination on the undercard of Liam Davies vs Jason Cunningham. Darnell's threw in the towel after the second stanza to end the one-sided beatdown.
Now 28-years-old, that stoppage victory doubled his win tally after first claiming a points victory in his pro debut in November 2022.
The heavyweight is trained by Paul Stevenson and Anthony Humphreys at the Everton Red Triangle gym in Liverpool, which also houses Nick Ball and Brad Strand.
The boxer-puncher shared his plans for 2024, “I want to be really busy this year, obviously I've got this fight on the 27th, I'd like to box again on the 10th February, I've seen that there's a show there [Hamzah Sheeraz vs Liam Williams at the Copper Box Arena]. There's a show in March as well, I just want to be really busy, I want to fight at least four or five times this year.
“I just want to be seriously busy, titles as well, I'm open to anything. I train really hard so whatever Frank wants to give me, I'm ready for it.”
The university graduate grew up in North London, but is now settled in Liverpool where he trains at the Everton Red Triangle gym with teammates Nick Ball and Brad Strand, who both have fights booked in the diary too. WBC #1 Ball will fight for WBC featherweight champion Rey Vargas on the Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou Saudi show on March 8, and Brad Strand faces hot prospect Dennis McCann on The Magnificent Seven card set for March 16.
Brown only started boxing aged 19 but was crowned Midlands Area champion on three occasions during his short amateur career. He ended up 200 miles southwest from home after attending university in Coventry and joining an amateur club in the Jewelry Quarter in Birmingham, where he became the main sparring partner for Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Delicious Orie.
After meeting Paul Stevenson at an amateur tournament, the pair kept in touch and, when the chance came to turn pro, he moved to Liverpool to join the century-old ERT Gym.
