Dennis Hobson hailed the huge media turnout, and welcomed the return of big-time boxing to the North East, as IBF world bantamweight champion Stuart Hall came face-to-face with challenger Paul Butler at today’s ‘Rampage’ press conference.
Darlington’s Hall and Ellesmere Port’s Butler will battle it out at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Saturday June 7, and both exuded confidence at the media event and insisted they would be triumphant at final bell.
“When you get a day like today, with such a big turnout, there’s nothing like a big boxing night,” explained Hobson. “We’ve got a great team now and in two years’ time, you see how many champions we’ll have in our stable. And these are the kinds of fights, and nights, we want to carry on putting together.
