Former Prizefighter winner and British title champion Michael Lomax is only 6 days away from a must win fight on Saturday when he tackles former Commonwealth Champion Bradley Pryce over 8 rounds in a match labelled “the rematch” at York Hall Bethnal Green on the Goodwin Promotions’ Trail of Destruction show.
34 year old Lomax knows he cannot afford to lose this fight against Pryce who defeated him in Wales in 2010. “It will be different this time” said Lomax “ My career is on the line and I want a big title shot by the end of the year.”
Lomax signed with Steve Goodwin earlier this year and after a routine win over trialhorse Arvydas Trizno in March, Lomax now steps up in class against the strill ambitious Pryce. Pryce has recently teamed up with Jamie Arthur and believes that dropping down to Welterweight can put him back in the title mix. “I have been fighting outside my natural weight division and believe I will beat Lomax easier than last time”
The Lomax v Pryce fight is on the undercard of the Southern Area Cruiserweight title fight between Menay Edwards and JJ Ojuederie.
There is also a quality undercard featuring some well know boxers and some exciting up and coming fighters.
“The rematch” features former British title challenger Michael Lomax against former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce over 8 rounds. Pryce won their first encounter in Wales and Lomax wants revenge.
What could be fight of the night sees “Smoking” Joe Mullender (4-0) take on former Southern Area Champion Gary Boulden over 8 rounds. This will be one all out war and not to be missed.
The undercard features the debut of former professional footballer Leon McKenzie who competes at Super-Middleweight and the debut of two exciting prospects Heavyweight Dominic Akinlade and Light Welterweight “showstar” Sohail Ahmad who has been working with Yassine el Maachi.
There are also many other fights on the undercard.
The Edwards v Ojuederie : Mullender v Boulden and Lomax v Pryce clashes are all 50/50 fights where you cannot predict the winner. This is what the Goodwin shows are about bringing top quality fights where you do not know who is going to win, value and excitement.
