Undefeated London boxer, Chris ‘The Bull’ Baugh 3(2)-0 gets a tough test tonight against Zoltan Turai 6(4)-3 at the Camden Centre on a packed Hellraiser Promotions show.
The show is titled ‘50 Shades of Hellraiser’ and features a wealth of British talent such as former Southern Area champ, Tony Owen and the highly anticipated title fight between challenger, Warren Fenn and British Masters light-middleweight champion, Nicky Jenman, while Baugh’s unbeaten teammate, Aaron Morgan goes for the International version of the strap against the highly-ranked Georgian, Nodar Robakidze.
The confident home fighter, Baugh posted this statement on social media channels yesterday afternoon, “Made weight! 11 stone bang on! Looked at my opponent, first time I've looked at one of them and actually wanted to put a beating on ‘em. This guy just brought it out of me.”
The away fighter, 20-year-old Hungarian Turai, has stopped four out of his six victories so far with just three losses on his respectable record making him a potential risk to the Islington boxer at this fledgling stage of his pro career.
The 26-year-old light-middleweight prospect known as ‘The Bull’ has raced to three fights unbeaten in as little as 14 weeks since making his pro bow in the last weekend of November last year with a points win over Harjinder Gill. This next fight will be the busy 26-year-old’s fourth in just 20 weeks.
Two of those wins came by way of knockout firstly on February 7th
as he doubled his win tally and scored his first career stoppage in a blistering first round attack against the tough Hungarian, Laszlo Jambrik.
The next victim came in the form of Bulgarian, Georgi Valevski as Baugh blasted him out of there in just three rounds at the Camden Centre in Kings Cross on March 7th
, just one month after his previous outing.
A university graduate from the London School of Economics, Baugh gave up a promising career in the international charity sector to live his dream as a professional boxer and it is certainly looking like it’s paying off in this early stage.
“It’s been a good start and that’s all it is – a start,” said the 26-year-old. “I’m not getting ahead of myself, I’ve been boxing regularly but I’m still developing and improving; I’m happy with that.”
Islington boxer, Baugh is put through his paces by respected coaches Bevis Allen and Roy Callaghan out of the renowned Rooney’s Gym in London.
Baugh trains with another heavy-handed light-middleweight, Aaron Morgan 6(5)-0 and seems to be displaying the same power and assiduousness as his teammate who co-headlines the talent-packed show.
The main event features Aarron Morgan and Warren Fenn in their attempt to capture their first titles at light-middleweight.
Morgan goes in against 21-year-old Robakidze who recently challenged for the vacant WBC Youth Silver light-middleweight title against unbeaten prospect, Jimmy Kilrain Kelly in Manchester.
British Masters light-middleweight champion, Nicky Jenman gives 27-year-old Warren ‘Fearless’ Fenn at crack at his title.
160lb knockout artist Arthur Hermann makes a step up in class when he faces Bulgaria’s number one, Alexey Ribchev.
Ribchev, who boasts 20 wins from 33 fights, came to London last year when he lost to top ten ranked super-middleweight, Frank Buglioni. The 32-year-old has also shared the ring with Chris Eubank Junior, Brian Rose and Jack Culcay so Hermann will certainly have a fight on his hands against a vastly experienced opponent.
Kazakh-born Hermann, who was forced to pull out of his scheduled fight in February through injury, has been sharpening his skills by sparring frequently with gold medal winning Olympian, James Degale who faces Andre Dirrell for the IBF world super middleweight title next month.
Promoter, Mickey Helliet found it a constant struggle to find willing opponents to step into the ring with Hermann with at least five potential rivals cancelling before Ribchev stepped up and accepted the challenge in the nick of time just last week.
Making his debut for Tandy Boxing is another exciting young fighter, Liberian Freddie “Pretty Boy” Kiwitt who doubles up as personal trainer and fitness model, hence the modest nickname.
Kiwitt is a five-fight unbeaten welterweight sensation who moved to London this year to take his boxing career to the next level going up against Slovakian journeyman, Lubos Priehradnik.
