Spencer looking to make it five on the bounce

Dudley light-middleweight, Kyle Spencer, is looking to build on his solid start to life as a professional boxer when he boxes at Burton Town Hall next Friday.
‘The Style’ (4-0) appears on the undercard of Luke Gallear and Joel Ryan’s Midland Area welterweight title fight on Friday, 1st March looking to record a fifth straight victory.

The 23 year-old’s last outing was a convincing points win over William Warburton back in November and he can’t wait to be back in the ring.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back in there,” Spencer said. “I haven’t been in the ring since I beat Warburton back in November but I’ve been sparring some decent lads and that’s kept me sharp.
“I’ve got rounds in against Andrew Robinson, Chris Male and Steve Pearce. They are all quality lads, so that’s helped.
“I want to be busy this year. I’ve only just turned 23. I’ve got plenty of time and I want to do things the right way. I want to build myself up and develop as a fighter. I’m on a winning streak, so long may that continue.”
Spencer faces Swadlincote rookie, Jimmy Price, on the Burton Bill. 19 year-old Price has only had one professional fight to date. That was back in September 2011 when he drew with fellow debutant, Chris Jenkinson. After such inactivity, Price is something of an unknown but Spencer won’t be underestimating his opponent.
“I don’t know much about him,” he added. “He’s had one fight and drew that, so he’s a bit of an unknown. I won’t be going in there all guns blazing.
“I’ll suss him out first and then work on my game plan. I’m at that stage of my career when I just need ring experience and to build my record.
“I’ve never fought at Burton Town Hall but I’m told there’s a cracking atmosphere there. I’m looking forward to the experience.”


Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Crag Whyatt v Ben Moorish, Camden Centre, 11th April

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
