JAKE ‘THE SPARTAN’ BARTON is one of many VIP boxers closing in on their first professional boxing title. Barton who is Southport’s only professional boxer sells plenty of tickets and hasn’t disappointed since turning professional in October 2018 defeating Curtis Gargano.
Later that year and in 2019 he came through on points against Callum Ide, Andy Bishop and Nathan Junor.
He’s one of the few VIP fighters who got a chance during the pandemic. This was in September and he ended a nine month later hammering 7-0 boxer Olly Newham in two rounds.
Just before lockdown was eased further he squeezed in a July trip in Kovin, Serbia and stopped Vanjo Dumitrov inside two rounds.
Before switching to boxing, Barton was WBC Muay Thai Champion and ISKA Intercontinental K1 Rules Champion.
