Welterweight Aaron Thomas is set to make his third appearance in the professional boxing ring at Stoke’s Kings Hall on 24 February. The 2004 Welsh ABA champion has made a perfect start to his pro career winning his first bout with a second round stoppage and emerging the victor on points against the tricky and seasoned campaigner, Ben Hudson, in his last contest.
Awaiting an opponent to be announced Thomas is aiming to continue his good run of form: “I’m enjoying the transition to the pro game very much,” said Thomas, “its suits my style much better than amateur boxing does. I showed in my first fight against Martin Sweeny what I can do with my power and although I found Ben Hudson very frustrating that was a good learning fight for me.”
“I tasted success in the amateurs and want to achieve as much as I can as a pro too. I know I have the ability to go all the way and with the guidance of my manager, Chris Sanigar, I am confident that I can fulfil my potential. I am keeping my feet on the ground though and don’t want to rush anything, I’ve still got a lot to learn and, for the moment at least, I am really enjoying my boxing.”
Well supported during his last two contests, Aaron, the son of former Stoke City, Manchester United and Wrexham favourite, expects at least 400 fans to give him a very vocal support at the atmospheric Kings Hall in February. Thomas is also scheduled to make an appearance at the Britannia Stadium on 17 February when Stoke City takes on Luton Town in a Championship match. He will be introduced to the crowd at half time along with English champions Scott Lawton and Chris Edwards.
