THERE is real belief in the VIP stable that Jake Abrol is primed for a big career in boxing.
VIP chief Steve Wood had trouble matching him for his debut in September 2021 and he was forced to give away more than half a stone.
Jake took the fight without any questions and showed enormous potential flooring Ivan Njegac twice and stopping him inside two rounds.
The teenage hopeful returned seven months later in his hometown and was given a terrific learning fight by Southampton-based Rustem Fatkhullin winning all four rounds.
He was back at Blackpool Winter Gardens five weeks later in May 2022 where he outpointed 2-0 Estonian Dmitri Protkunas and his opponent was soon in survival mode after being hurt.
Later in the summer he travelled down the road to Bolton and moved to 4-0 when he outpointed Carl Turney over four rounds.
He ended 2022 with a career-best performance so far, dropping veteran Fonz Alexander in the first round and then stopping him soon after his rival beat the count.
The big-hitting continued in March 2023 when Argentinian Claudio Lionel Baldomir showed no ambition to beat the count after being floored by a right hand in the first round.
It was a night to remember in May when he headlined in his hometown at the iconic Winter Gardens, where men like Howard Winstone have boxed.
Abrol didn’t feel at his best but still won all six rounds before claiming a shut-out points win over Bulgarian Georgi Velichkov.
He stepped up in class in June 2023 and showed why he is considered a blue chip prospect taking a 60-55 decision in a patient and defensively cute performance against good Nicaraguan Greyvin Mendoza.
Illness laid Jake low for a few months, but on his Blackpool return in November, he comfortably outpointed John Henry Mosquera over six rounds.
Jake who is trained by his Father, Andy boxed out of Sharpstyle ABC and won a stack of amateur titles and boxed for England.
