MANNY Zaber will fight for a first professional title on Black Country Boxing’s November show at Walsall Town Hall.
The Old Hill super-featherweight tops ‘Going For Gold’, sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall, on Saturday, November 19.
The 21-year-old has recorded eight victories since turning pro last year and insists he ready to make the step up.
“I’m ready for a title shot,” he said. “I’ve had eight fights against a range of opponents. I’ve done four and six rounds so the next step is an eight rounder.
“I can’t wait to get in there and pick up a British Challenge title.”
Walsall’s former British champion Martin Gethin is also in action. The 32-year-old will be looking to bounce back from his recent defeat to Adam Little in Blackpool. Gethin, who has stepped up to super lightweight, was defeated in a Commonwealth title eliminator and will be looking to get back to winning ways on home soil.
Swadlincote’s undefeated super middleweight, Zach Parker, also features. Like Zaber, Parker turned professional last year and has racked up seven wins to date.
Newark’s Chad Sugden is also back in action. The undefeated super middleweight (4-0) impressed at the Town Hall last month as he stopped the usually durable Kieron Gray – ‘2 Slick’ will be looking to build on that victory as he moves up the rankings.
Wolverhampton cruiserweight Josh Burke and West Bromwich welterweight Tommy Loach complete the card.
Tickets are priced at £30 (general admission) and £60 (VIP ringside), and can be purchased by calling 0845 111 2900 or directly from any boxer on the bill.
