Nathan Graham defends Southern Area title against Freddie Turner

TRAD TKO Boxing Gym guv'nor Johnny Eames has announced the line-up of the Brothers in Arms card, which takes place at York Hall on Friday, 18th October. Headlining, Aylesbury's Nathan 'De Lick' Graham (14-5-1) defends his Southern Area light middleweight title against unbeaten Canning Town southpaw Freddie Turner (8-0).

Graham makes the first defense of the crown that he won back in December 2012, following Kris Agyei-Dua’s unfortunate fourth round retirement from a painful dislocated shoulder. This will be Graham's first fight this year. In his two previous outings, Turner scored resounding points victories over Costas Osben and former British title challenger Max Maxwell.

Lithuanian heavyweight prospect Paulius Kasiulevicius (2-0)is back in action, against a yet to be named opponent. Walthamstow-based Albanian middleweight Festim Lama (2-0) also puts in an appearance, along with nineteen year old lightweight Tommy Martin (4-0), who makes his fifth outing in under a year since signing with Eames. Making his pro debut will be super flyweight Joe Stevens from Basildon, Essex.

The event is titled Brothers in Arms as it features not just one pair of brothers, but two. Romford-based Upton brothers, Paul and Anthony. Paul made his pro debut back in June with a points victory over Brummie Dee Mitchell, whilst Anthony will be making his pro debut. The second pair of brothers are Onder and Siar Ozgul, who have both represented Turkey in international competition, with Onder also competing in the AIBA World Series of Boxing.


Eric Armit's Snips and Snipes - April 17, 2014

The live gate for Pacquiao vs. Bradley II came to almost $8 million, so with Pacquiao guaranteed $20 million and Bradley $6 million it gives a picture of just how much money TV puts into the pot. I am surprised there is not a market in 'idols of the gods of TV' as there's a lot of big time fighters who should be worshipping at the entertainment temple that makes them so rich.
