Lenny Daws is looking to shine at Glow, Bluewater in Kent on Saturday, 13th October when he takes on Finnish boxer Ville Piispanen for the vacant European Union Light Welterweight Title.
The 12 round fight which is promoted by Hennessy Sports is on the undercard of James DeGale’s European Super Middleweight title defense.
The former two times British champion said “Piispanen can’t be a bad fighter, he’s already held the EU title along with being the number one fighter in Finland, so I expect him to be-coming over to the UK looking for the win.”
“He will bring everything he’s got.” added Lenny “We’ve been studying him on YouTube and looking at his record he’s certainly not going to be a push over.
“But as the fight goes on, the crowd will get louder and louder, and he’s not going to like it as my fans are some of the loudest in the world, he will never have experienced anything like it.” added Daws
The Morden, surrey based fighter who turned pro back in 2003 and is ranked number two in the EBU ratings also added “ You will see the best Lenny Daws yet, this is my time now. I’m going to show everyone what I can do, and by winning the EU title it is a step in the right direction and once I have achieved this I will sit down with my team and plan my next move.”
“I can’t wait….”
The October 13 event at Bluewater will also see Hennessy Sports latest signing, James DeGale MBE defending his European Super Middleweight title, Middleweight prospect Chris Eubank Jnr in his seventh pro fight and current WBC International Super Bantamweight champion Kid Galahad.
The undercard will also feature Phill Fury, Brixton’s Dillian Whyte, Jordon Gill from Chatteris, Arfan Iqbal from Derby, Leo D’erlanger from Oxford and local fighter Adam Dingsdale.
