Professional boxing returns

THE UPRIZING

Write up by Richard Vaughan


On Saturday 26th October 2019 professional boxing returns to the Bedfordshire town of Dunstable following a break of 23 years when Joe Elfidh for Boxing Connected stages what will hopefully be the first of many shows at the stunning Dunstable Conference Centre.
The towns of Dunstable and nearby Luton have in recent years been rather a backwater for the sport of professional boxing however through the industrious work of Alan Baptiste, Matty Earles & Paul Webb at Hockwell Ring ABC talent has emerged that is now ready to be unleashed on the professional ranks. One of the standout talents that has emerged from Hockwell Ring is the current English Super Lightweight Champion Kay Prospere who will be in attendance to cheer on his former club mates and who will happily pose for photographs and sign autographs for people at an event which is fast heading towards a sell out.
The full bill is yet to be confirmed however as a taster Boxing Connected can confirm that the following will be climbing through the ropes, local lads Josh Gooding and Ali Malik and unbeaten Lewisham Super Middleweight Chris Davies.
Tickets are selling like hot cakes so fight fans of Dunstable, Luton and the surroundings villages and towns don’t delay in purchasing tickets and contact Paul Webb on 07852 102162 or @lutonbod on 07557 161040.
Promoter Joe Elfidh is fully committed to the task of reviving professional boxing in Dunstable & Luton and would like to express his personal thanks to all those companies who have agreed to sponsor the event.
