“We’re really looking forward to what we hope will be the first of a series of competitions that will see local fighters compete for not only local bragging rights but also a Midlands Title,” explained Head of Boxing at BCB, Errol Johnson. “We are grateful to the British Boxing Board of Control and Martin Florey, Richard Vaughan and Rob Smith in particular for their support. We are also thankful to Leon Woodstock and his team for informing us of their decision to vacate in time readiness for the final next year.

“It’s a chance to see who is the best out of the eight contenders. Hopefully, Midlands fight fans will back the concept and we can do more BCB Midlands Boxing Super Series at a variety of weights. Let’s see who is the last man standing!”
