Q&A WITH GARY CORCORAN

Posted on 27 August 2014 in Interviews
Could 2014-15, be a 'break-out' campaign for Paddington light-middleweight Gary Corcoran?

The 23 year old who they call 'Hellraiser' has ripped through his first ten pro opponents and is looking ominously more formidable with each passing outing.

A natural born scrapper with a rich Irish traveller heritage, Corcoran begins his season at eight round level at the York Hall, Bethnal Green – live on BoxNation- on September 20th but is predicting that it will conclude with a title belt clasped around his midriff.

Last week, boxing writer Glynn Evans called him to reflect on his career to date and discuss his ambitions for 2014-15.
A bright talent to emerge on BoxNation screens last season was stylish Chingford super-middle Tom Baker. The 6ft 1in redhead with the ramrod left jab made five starts since July 2013 and excelled in each to advance his slate to a perfect 9-0.

The former two time senior English ABA finalist and regular England rep kick starts his new campaign with a six rounder at the York Hall on September 20TH. To see how he fares and to catch the whole card – tune into BoxNation, the Channel of Champions (Sky Ch.437 (HD490)/Sky Ch.546) from 7pm on fight night. Last week, boxing writer Glynn Evans caught up with quiet but likeable 22 year old to review his career thus far and discuss his aspirations for 2014-15.
Black Country banger Jason Welborn gets an unexpected chance to eradicate the memory of his tepid British welterweight challenge this weekend.

Eighteen months ago, he was soundly beaten in seven rounds by brilliant Brummie Frankie Gavin before his home faithful at the Walsall Town Hall.
After seven months on the physio's couch, unbeaten British light-middle king Liam Smith is keen to remind fans of his fast blossoming talent this weekend.

The 25 year old Liverpudlian looked lethal dispatching Heywood's Mark Thompson last December only to be subsequently sidelined with hand damage.

He makes a welcome return to duty at the Phones 4u Arena, Manchester this Saturday in what looks sure to be a feisty shootout with Black Country banger Jason Welborn.
Unbeaten middleweight Billy Joe Saunders continues to edge ever closer to his dream of becoming the first of travelling stock to win a boxing world title.

A 2008 Beijing Olympian at the age of just 18, the brilliant Hatfield southpaw has already cruised to Southern Area, Commonwealth, British and Intercontinental honours as a pro.
At the age of 21 and with just 34 pro rounds on his perfect 8-0 (4) slate, Harrow Weald super-featherweight Mitchell Smith is already honing in on the major titles.

If the former ABA champion's talent is incontestable, his application has been rather less so. But following a wake-up call in his first 10 rounder against Scott Moises last September, 'the Baby Faced Assassin' began to get his act together.

IN DEPTH WITH LOUIS ADOLPHE

Posted on 16 July 2014 in Interviews
2012 English ABA champion Louis Adolphe finally makes his pro debut at the York Hall this Wednesday in a four rounder.

The 22 year old Wimbledon welter graduated from the highly regarded Earlsfield ABC academy with several national honours and England vests and now hopes his slick skills can take him to the big titles and big money as a pro.

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.
Reigning IBF bantamweight king Stuey Hall believes the time has come for those within the industry to pay him his props.

The 34 year old from Darlington is presently in the richest vein of form of his six year, 20 fight pro career and enters Saturday's civil war with Ellesmere Port's Paul Butler as the naturally bigger, more seasoned fighter. Yet despite profiting from home court at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, Stuey knows he'll enter the ring as a sizeable underdog with the bookies and a rank outsider with most of the media.
