Robbie Turley returns in ‘Night of the Dragon’ this Friday in Cardiff

Boxing returns to the capital, only a week, after the WBO light heavyweight title fight between champion Nathan Cleverly and challenger Tommy Karpency. Last week saw Welshman Cleverly delight the ‘home’ crowd with a unanimous 12-round decision to retain his title.

On Friday (March 2nd), local boxer Robbie Turley faces Scotland’s Gavin Reid at the same venue – Motorpoint Arena in the ‘Night of the Dragon’. On the line is the vacant Celtic super-bantamweight title over ten rounds.

Turley (10-4, 1 KO) is having his first start since giving, Barry McGuigan’s protégé fighter, Carl Frampton his toughest fight to date. Turley lost over ten rounds. Turley showed his willingness to brawl, along, with his good boxing skills in that fight.

He faces Gavin Reid (6-11, 3 KOs) who has fought some of the top prospects in the UK; like unbeaten Scott Quigg, Ricky Owen and Carl Frampton. He will be a competitive foe for Turley and will be coming to win the Celtic title.

On the undercard we see the debut of, former amateur star, Allan Kasongo against Lithuania’s Rolandas Cesna (1-6, 0 KOs). Cesna has never been stopped, though this time he faces Kasongo who brings a reputation as a big puncher. In fact, he floored, undefeated, David Price in an amateur contest. Kasongo looks like a good addition to an already competitive UK Heavyweight scene and the Welsh boxer has a natural rival in undefeated Dorian Darch (4-0, 0 KOs)

A host of local talent is on the undercard with Welshmen, Barrie Jones and Kyle King along with unbeaten trio – Dale Evans, Chris Jenkins and Gareth Piper. (nephew of former world title challenger Nicky Piper.)

The Night of the Dragon will be another fantastic showcase of the boxing talent Wales has to offer and produce crowd pleasing contests.

Tickets are available at £25 (seated) and £50 (ringside) 02920 234567.

VIP packages are also available on request.
