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 when he defeated 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. That was in September 2020 when he hammered 7-0 Olly Newham in two rounds.
And just before lockdown was eased further he squeezed in a July 2021 trip to Kovin, Serbia and stopped Vanjo Dumitrov inside two rounds.
In November 2021, Jake made his first British appearance in 14 months. Despite being dropped in round one he overcame that shaky start and outpointed later French sub Cherif Benchadi.
Before switching to boxing, Barton was WBC Muay Thai Champion and ISKA Intercontinental K1 Rules Champion.
