Stoke middleweight Nathan Heaney (1-0) is looking forward to returning to the ring after impressing on his professional debut in December. 28-year-old Heaney outpointed tough veteran Darryl Sharp on his professional debut and is ready to put on another show this weekend.
“The fans are in for a real treat,” he told bcb-promotions.com.” (Head of Boxing) Errol Johnson and everyone at BCB have managed to organise a great show with talented fighters like Luke Caci and Jake Haigh to name a few.
It’s going to be a great night at King’s Hall with all of these fighters from Stoke in action”.
“Luke (Caci) will be fighting for a first title which is massive and seeing what he’s achieved in just a year in the pro ranks is amazing..
“After the fight with Darryl Sharp, Darryl told me that I hit really hard and although I didn’t come away with the stoppage, Darryl told me the punches were definitely affecting him.
“Darryl has been in with some really top-level guys so for him to come out after the fight and say I was hurting him says a lot about the power I have.
“During my amateur career I mainly used to fight off the back foot in a lot of my fights but coming into the pro ranks I want to be more aggressive and really put pressure on my opponents and put on exciting fights for the fans.
“There’s no doubt that I will still need to call upon the counter-punching and back foot boxing style in a lot of my professional fights to come, so I think having more tools available to me is only going to help me in my career.
“I’m working hard for the upcoming fight and hopefully after an impressive display I can progress right into six round fights after my next fight.”
Staffordshire’s finest will be in action in March as BCB Promotions host a night of professional boxing at King’s Hall, Stoke-On-Trent.
