Likely lads get chance to parade their talents

Once again promoter Steve Goodwin will parade some bright local talent on his massive 14-bout, two-title, Saturday spectacular at York Hall this weekend.

He features a quartet of boxers from Canning Town’s ever-busy TKO Gymnasium, including recently arrived light-middleweight Daniel Herdman.

The former Repton and England amateur has moved from Tony Sims’ Hainault gym and bids for his fourth win in five paid contests as he faces Ryan Clark.

Debut boys Ricky Boylan and Brett O’Callaghan are also named for the bill where they are scheduled to meet Sid Razak and Gary Cooper.

TKO Gym featherweight George Jupp awaits confirmation of his opponent on the undercard, which also features Tony Sims trained duo John Ryder and Tyler Goodjohn.

The show also features former Repton amateur Michael Norgrove who is seeking to extend his three-bout winning run on the night, when he is opposed by veteran Matt Scriven.

Cruiserweight Tony Conquest, who has moved forward into a top 10 UK ranking under the guidance of Canning Town trainer Jason Rowland, risks that rating when he faces Welsh boxer Hari Miles on the show.

Victory could see Conquest stepping up for title action in 2011, but manager Richard Clarke insists it is too risky to think ahead past Saturday’s clash with the dangerous opponent, who looks his prospect’s toughest pro test to date.

Miles’ record of five wins in his seven matches and his two losses – both points defeats – suggest that the six-feet-four-inches tall Welsh boxer is a durable campaigner who could cause some problems over the eight round course.

Also appearing on the York Hall show is another member of the Noble Art Gym stable, trained by former WBU title-holder Rowland, welterweight prospect John ‘Wayne’ Hibbert who is looking to extend his six-bout unbeaten run on the undercard.

Another prospect trained by Rowland, former kick boxing champion super-featherweight Richard Hines, will be lookng to live up to his ‘Hurricane’ nickname as he makes his paid debut on the show.

Yassine El Maachi fights Jimmy Colas for the International Masters light-heavyweight title, which headlines the Steve Goodwin-promoted double-title tournament.

The second title fight features Ryan Barrett’s defence of his International Masters lightweight belt against the heavy hitting Hungarian Istvan Nagy.
