Hellraiser Boxing Present ‘Fists of Fury’. A 12 round contest for the vacant WBO Intercontinental Super-Featherweight Title. Friday( March 2).
Promoter Mickey Helliet says if he wasn’t organizing this week’s show at The Troxy he would have bought a ticket! Helliet has built a reputation for value-for-money small-hall shows and he now brings that to the nation’s screens on Friday night.
Helliet’s previous televised show – at the Coronet in Elephant and Castle last November – was shown on Eurosport and over three quarter of a million fight fans throughout Europe saw a succession of exciting tear ups and spectacular knock outs.
His next event takes place at The Troxy in London’s Limehouse on Friday night (2nd March) when Stephen Smith and Ben Jones go toe-to-toe for what promises to be a highly entertaining contest.
Helliet said: “This is definitely my kind of fight. I always like to put on fights where I know both guys are motivated and have a fair chance of winning, this fight fits the bill perfectly!
“Smith and Jones are both very good fighters and they are massively up for it! Smith has fought at a higher level but Ben has looked very impressive over the last couple of seasons and is relishing this opportunity. If he wins here he’ll be hitting the big time and he knows it. “
“I’m a boxing fan and want to promote fights I would pay to see myself, insisted Smith.
“I always aim to make the audience the winner at my shows. I like to think they go home having seen something spectacular and this fight has all the makings of that.”
A good scrap is guaranteed every time either Stephen Smith or Ben Jones step into the ring.
Jones, from Crawley, dominated Akaash Batia to win the English title in a terrific fight last May.
The chief support for the show sees the return of Ashley Sexton. The Cheshunt flyweight claimed knock-out of-the-year plaudits for his one-punch demolition of Derby dancer Usman Ahmed. That has become a worldwide smash hit on the internet and the former English flyweight champion has a point to prove. He’s matched with a fellow ambitious and fast-rising fighter in Frenchman Thomas Masson.
In a battle of undefeated prospects Brixton’s exciting heavyweight Dyllian White, takes on Bulgaria’s Kristian Kirilov.
Dan Woodgate laid out Paul Davis with a sensational six-punch combination in his last fight and returns to action in a six round contest.
Also on the bill are Chas ‘The Bomb’ Symonds, ‘Pretty’ Ricky Boylan, Johnny Garton, Warren Fenn, Lloyd Ellett, Lee Owen, Jack Morris, Irv Pascal along with Watford’s Elliott Matthews who fill what promises to be a highly entertaining undercard.
