Miranda Carter and Bruce Baker have joined forces to co-promote their first event of the new season, ‘Great Expectations’, at the York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Sunday 18th September 2011
Miranda and Bruce, along with Matchmaker Jim Evans, have put together a mouth watering fight card, co-headlined by British Light Welterweight Champion Ashley ‘Treasure’ Theophane and Southern Area Cruiserweight Champion Leon ‘Solid’ Williams.
Finchley’s Theophane, comes into this fight fresh off a sensational tenth round knockout win over Jason Cook, on the first defense of his title at Wembley back in July.
Streatham’s Williams is also coming off a first title defense knockout win, this time a fourth round KO of Danny Couzens, back in May. On September 18th the Johnny Eames managed and co-trained ‘Solid’ will be facing super tough ‘Fighting Fireman’ Nick Okoth from Battersea.
Heading up the support sees William’s Trad TKO Gym mate, the sensational Mark Tibbs trained Light Middleweight prospect, Nathan ‘Sugar’ Weise steps up to the plate against Woodford’s Duncan Cottier.
Unbeaten Brixton Heavyweight Ian Lewis, another big hitting knockout artist, will be back in action, against a yet to be named opponent.
Another youngster from Johnny Eames’ Trad TKO stable of thoroughbreds, Belvedere’s exciting featherweight prospect ‘Saint’ George Jupp, gets his first outing since the highly controversial loss to Raffi Khan back in March. At ‘Great Expectations’ young George will be taking on awkward Welsh southpaw Chuck Jones.
Mitcham’s Danny ‘Cassius’ Connor will be keen to continue his winning ways. The Alec Wilkey coached Welterweight has really turned his career around this year, having notched up two excellent wins over Duane Grimes and Danny Dontchev before the summer break.
A pair of the Capital’s upcoming young Middleweights, Diego Burton and Dalton Miller are both keen to get their first wins of the new season under their belts, as will Light Welter Ideh Ockuku.
Finally, making their debut on the 18th will be Billericay Welterweight Luke ‘Lights Out’ Fowler and Lightweight Francis Maina.
The Miranda Carter and Bruce Baker co-promoted ‘Great Expectations’ takes place at York Hall, Bethnal Green, London on Sunday 18th September 2011. Doors open at 2pm and the first bout is at 3pm.
