IN DEPTH WITH KIRK GARVEY

Posted on 14 July 2014 in Interviews
Six foot four inch light-heavyweight Kirk Garvey believes it won't be too long before he's towering over Britain's 175lb division.

The 22 year old from Clapham, south London bagged 11 national amateur titles – including the 2012 senior English ABA crown – and once scalped Olympic medallist Anthony Ogogo.
Winchmore Hill super-middle Frank Buglioni believes that his unscripted stoppage loss to teak tough Belarusian Sergey Khomitsky at the Copper Box last April has actually accelerated his passage to the major titles he covets.

The sixth round stoppage loss highlighted a few flaws that needed correcting yet might not have been identified against less taxing, less stubborn opposition.
Last Tuesday marked the 125th anniversary of the almost mythical heavyweight prize-fight between John L. Sullivan and Jake Kilrain.

It was the last bareknuckle tussle – held under London Prize Rules – before gloves were formally embraced.
Of the four losses that soil European heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora's 24 fight ring slate, none grate more with Team Del Boy than the concession of his British and Commonwealth titles to Tyson Fury at Wembley Arena three years back.

That night the man from Finchley turned up for duty sporting a soft midriff and even softer psyche and, despite sporadic successes, he was comprehensively schooled over 12 rounds.
If Michael Gomez Junior can deliver a small fraction of the excitement that his father of the same name generated during a hell-raising 48 fight, 14 year career  - which brought British and WBU super-feather titles and saw him duel future world champions Alex Arthur, Amir Khan and Ricky Burns – he'll have given us a career to remember.

After a promising amateur apprenticeship, the thrilling 19 year old from Moston, Manchester debuts on the Fury-Chisora undercard at the Phones 4 U Arena - where his warring father was such a star – on July 26th.
While fighters have to deliver the goods between the ropes, the decisions which their management teams make on their behalf can impact heavily upon the course of their careers.

This was patently evident last weekend in the contrasting cases of lightweights Terence Crawford and Ricky Burns who contested the WBO title in March.
Terry Flanagan and Martin Gethin will clash for the Vacant British Lightweight Championship at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester on Saturday 26th July.

The addition of the potential domestic thriller adds to an already quality packed card headlined by Dereck Chisora's big heavyweight showdown with bitter rival Tyson Fury, also featuring British stars Billy Joe Saunders, Liam Smith, Jack Catterall and Nathan Brough all in title action.
Tyson Fury is pushing himself to the physical limits as he prepares for his showdown with rival Dereck Chisora on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

The Manchester giant has been pushing a three and half ton tractor at his Bolton training camp to build up his strength and power to meet Chisora head-on in the biggest heavyweight grudge match in recent years.
Paul Butler will relinquish his IBF World Bantamweight title and return to the super-flyweight division as he aims to become Britain's first boxer to win a second world title at a lighter weight in over a century.

The Ellesmere Port ace put on a blistering performance to take the title from Stuart Hall last month in Newcastle, and now looks to join British legend Bob Fitzsimmons, who won the world title at heavyweight and then at light-heavyweight.
Billy Joe Saunders says he's only got eyes for Emanuele Blandamura in the build up to his fight with the undefeated Italian.

The Hatfield star aims to add the Vacant European title to his British and Commonwealth belts, but says he is not distracted by the lure of a world title showdown with WBO king Peter Quillin.
