Sam Stokes looking to double win ratio on November 21 in Camden

Basildon’s light heavyweight, Sam Stokes 1-0-0 is looking to get a second victory in the paid ranks on November 21 at Camden Centre, Kings Cross against Lithuanian, Ernestas Dapkus.

This will be Stokes’ second pro outing following a successful debut win over the Czech Republic’s Josef Obeslo 5(3)-18(2)-2 in July this year at the same venue, the Camden Centre, Kings Cross.

Winning all four rounds with a 40-36 points score, the 24-year-old Essex boy is now looking to start notching up the wins in order to challenge for titles in the not too distant future.

Sharing his ambitions, Sam stated, “I want to notch up the wins this year then in 2015 I would definitely be looking towards a Masters title; end of the year – Southern Area. Just one step at a time and I know that I’ll get there.”

Standing in his way is 28-year-old Lithuanian, Ernestas Dapkus 1(1)-3-0. This will be the super middleweight’s second visit to the home of boxing, York Hall, after losing on points to Manny Muhamed last August. This fight for Dapkus, from Šiauliai, will be a year on from his only win in the paid ranks when he scored a TKO victory over Bernd Hargesheimer in Germany last November.

Of his forthcoming opponent, Stokes remarked, “I am facing a lad from Lithuania. I’ve seen some of his videos on YouTube, he has a good boxer’s style so should make a good fight over the four rounds.”

Stokes would have preferred to be entering into his third contest by now but suffered a minor setback with a head injury caused in sparring in September. The diagnosed concussion kept the light heavyweight out of training for a month.

Of Romany Gypsy descent, Stokes enjoyed a successful stint in the unlicensed circuit accomplishing 11 straight wins helping to build a substantial fan base to enter the pro ranks with.

The fight is part of a Hellraiser Promotions show and while the rest of the schedule is still being put together, it will feature flyweight debutant, Jordan Smith, 21-years-old and hailing from the same gym as Stokes in London – The Peacock Gym.

Tickets are priced at £35, £60 and £100 and are available directly from the Team Stokes on 07908 862769.
