Four-time Polish medallist, Damian Kiwior, is looking forward to his second professional boxing foray this weekend.
The 24 year-old enjoyed a highly decorated amateur career in his homeland where he picked up two golds, silver and a bronze in the Polish Senior Citizenships as well as being named youth champion in 2016. Kiwior debuted at Walsall Town Hall last month, recording an impressive shut-out victory over Bulgarian Anatoli Lyubeno.
“I gained a lot of confidence after I won on my debut,” he told bcb-promotions.com. “I was well prepared. I spent much more time than I actually needed in the gym but because of that I was pleased with how I boxed.”
Kiwior is back at the Town Hall on Saturday on BCB Promotions’ ‘Time To Shine’ bill. He faces another Bulgarian, Mario Petrov, and is hoping the large Polish contingent of supporter he mustered for his pro bow are out in force again.
“It was great to have a lot of Polish fans in the crowd,” he added. “When they rally me to fight I felt additional sources of power with every single shout!
“I am looking forward to fighting at the Town Hall again because the boxing fans in the Town are amazing.
“I’ve trained very hard and have done my homework; the opponent is a challenge but again – I’m well prepared.
“I am taking this fight very serious. I worked extremely hardly every single day to give the fans experiences which they cannot predict and prove again that I have heart of a fighter.”
Tickets, priced at £40 standard unreserved and £80 VIP Ringside, are on sale now from the Walsall Town Hall Box Office 0845 111 2900.
