The 30 year-old fulfilled a boxing ambition last year when he was crowned Midlands Area Welterweight Champion. It was a belt he picked up in April 2015 with a career-best performance against Nuneaton’s Sullivan Mason at Walsall Town Hall.

Sadly for Rob Hunt, the belt changed hands in his maiden defence when he was caught cold by big punching Brummie, Karl Wiggins, at the Barclay Card Arena just six months later.

Hunt returned to the ring in March this year to record a points win over Exeter’s Faheem Khan and now, back in the gym and deep in camp ahead of his latest outing, has his eyes on the prize once again.

“I want to get back in amongst it,” Hunt told www.uko-boxing.com. “I’d like another crack at the Midlands title or look for something bigger like the English (title).

“I’ve held the belt I always set myself the target of achieving and now I’d like to kick on again.

“It will be nice to get back in there and blow away a few cobwebs. I had a few niggling injuries after the Khan fight but I’m fully fit and fully focused now.

“I won the title in Walsall and the Town Hall is my favourite venue. I’m looking forward to getting in there now.”

Hunt features on Black Country Boxing’s Summer Scorcher – sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall – alongside a host of local fighters including Halesowen’s Lennox Clarke, Ludlow’s Craig Morris and Birmingham’s Jordan Clayton, ‘Tipton Slasher’, Lee Glover, Coventry’s James ‘The Full Monty’ Montgomery, West Bromwich’s Luke Heron and Jack Summers, and Wolverhampton’s Joshua Burke

Tickets for the show on 9th July are priced at £30 (general admission) and £60 (VIP Ringside), and can be purchased by calling 0845 111 2900 or directly from any boxer on the bill.

The weigh-in and aftershow (over 18’s only) take place at Grosvenor Casino Walsall, Bentley Mill Way, Walsall WS2 0LE (just off junction 10 of the M6). GC Walsall will have a presence at the Town Hall on the evening and have linked up with local taxi firm, Yellow Taxi’s, to supply a number of free taxi’s to take guests from the Town Hall to the casino post-fight.
