Exciting times in Birmingham: Exclusive report from the Eastside Boxing Gym

It’s an exciting time to be a boxing fan in the Midlands as big time boxing made its way back to the city of Birmingham last weekend. Coinciding with that, I paid a visit to the Eastside Boxing Gym, home to some of the fighters who fought over the past weekend and also those looking to be added to any further shows in the future. I was keen to meet the fighters and the rest of the team behind their current success.

The Eastside Boxing Gym is located in Birmingham. It houses some of the most exciting talent emerging from the city. The Eastside Gym was first formed as an amateur club in 2008, but just seven years later there are eighteen pros, coupled with an impressive fodder of amateur talent. Paul Counihan and Jon Pegg are both trainers and partners in the gym. They and rest of the team at Eastside have produced 18 National Champions, 9 England Internationals and 2 Team GB representatives.

Hunt Hoping For Midlands Strap

Stafford welterweight, Rob Hunt, is hoping titles are like buses.

The likeable boxer finally secured a first professional title in his last outing after two previously unsuccessful attempts.

Hunt lifted the British Bronze Masters is his last outing – a convincing points win over Liam Richards – and is now hoping to make it back to back title wins when he takes on Sullivan Mason for the vacant Midlands Area Welterweight Title on Saturday, 25th  April at Walsall Town Hall.

Denton Vassell: I’ll prove I can still be a world champion

Denton Vassell is hunting a rematch with Frankie Gavin as he prepares to face Sam Eggington in a British Welterweight title eliminator at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on September 13, live on Sky Sports.

Vassell challenged Gavin for the British and Welterweight title in June 2013 and was forced to retire before the start of the eighth round with a broken jaw. The Manchester man turns 30 on the day of the Eggington clash and having spent over a year on the side-lines, he aims to prove he’s still got plenty to offer in the 147lbs division.

“It’s my opportunity to show the fans that I am still here,” said Vassell. “I’m hungrier than ever and I’m very confident. I had a little injury but even when the doctor told me to stop I wanted to carry and that’s the fighter in me coming through. Obviously the doctor has to do his job but I am confident that I would’ve gone on to win the fight, I was a bit behind on points probably but I would have caught up to him.

Swansea Bill: Tobias Webb wins, Chris Jenkins Impresses

Swansea’s Tobias Webb won a six round points decision over Sunderland’s tricky journeyman, Jody Meikle, at the Oceana Nightclub, Swansea on a Paul Boyce Promotions show on Friday night.

Webb was consistent throughout the bout and displayed a good orthodox jab and timing in a slow-paced bout.
