Ramabeletsa vs Masoud and other English Championship news

Frank Warren's top super-bantamweight prospet Shabaz Masoud (7-0) has landed an English title shot at champion Michael Ramabeletsa (18-17), the latest BBBofC English Championship circular has announced.

Signed to Frank Warren, 'The Maverick' from Stoke-on-Trent, has raced to 7-0 within two years and is still just 23 years old. He has already drawn comparisons to Prince Naseem as he cruises his way to victory with his hands by his hips. However, 'The Trouble Maker' who currently holds the English belt at 122lbs is called that for a reason. He has defeated three unbeaten prospects in his last three outings - Indi Sangha (9-0), Ryan Walker (8-0) and Joe Eko (7-0). Against Eko in his last fight, he collected the Central Area super-featherweight title, knocking the unbeaten Oldham man twice, and in his fight with Walker, preceding that, he won the English super-bantamweight belt with a fast-paced first-round TKO.
