One of Britain's brightest prospects returns to the ring on Friday, May 29 as flyweight Ashley Sexton laces up the gloves at Fenton Manor Sports Complex in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
Undefeated Sexton will square off against rugged rival Mike Robinson on the undercard of British flyweight champion Chris Edward's homecoming title defense against Usman Ahmed.
"Flash Ash" Sexton, 5-0 (3), has torn through the competition in his last three appearances, stopping each opponent behind a hailstorm of leather to climb into serious contention for the British title.
Just 21 years of age, the Cheshunt based stylist has turned a superb amateur career in an impressive start as a professional since joining the paid ranks last August.
Standing in the way of Sexton's ambitions is steadfast Liverpool based super bantam Mike Robinson, 4-1-1 (0), who is coming off two terrifically competitive clashes with English super fly titlist Ross Burkinshaw and has promised to introduce the flashy youngster to the bitter taste of defeat.
The durable 24 year old Robinson will be a real test for Sexton, who will have to dig deep and show the resolve necessary to defeat a bigger, stronger and more experienced opponent who has a lot to prove coming off a hard fought loss.
