David has been around boxing gyms since he was a small child. He now follows his father David into the ranks. Senior boxed as a professional from 2000-2004.

Managed by Riche Garner and trained by his father, there are high hopes that he will have a successful career in the paid ranks. He’s got a good team around him and trains out of Grange ABC. Away from boxing, he is in the building trade, so keeps physically fit even when not at the gym.

His opponent, on Saturday, hails from Sheffield. 19-year-old Kieran Holman has suffered two defeats, since his debut in 2017. ‘The Hitman’ will be looking to make it third time lucky, in Ebbw Vale against White Jr.

Cardiff’s Mitchell Buckland (12-0) will face Llanelli-based Polish fighter Robert Studzinski (4-37). Blackwood Light Heavyweight Kody ‘P.O.G’ Davies, 23, trained by Gavin Rees, is back in action. He’s been hugely impressive in his first two wins and will be looking to follow that up.

Rhoose lightweight Lance Cooksey (4-0), trained by Tony Borg, faces experienced journeyman Liam Richards (12-45). Middleweight Ricky Rowlands (2-1), trained by Jamie Arthur, is looking for his third win, in four. 19-year-old Jake Anthony (1-0), of Ammanford, will look to follow up his debut win.
