KANE GARDNER vs JAMIE ROBINSON

Kane Gardner is gearing up to headline at his favourite venue, Toughsheet Stadium in Bolton. In a Super Lightweight British & Commonwealth Eliminator, 'Sugar Kane' will face off against 'Ginger Rocket' Jamie Robinson in what is set to be a fiery match-up! This stacked night of professional boxing features an exciting 11 fight undercard.

After coming up short in his last outing, against undefeated prospect Pierce O’Leary, Gardner is looking to put in a dominant performance to put himself firmly back on the title trajectory. This will be Kane’s first campaign since he and coach Ian Harrison made the move to Anthony Crolla’s Fox ABC. Admitting he had lost his passion for boxing before the switch, Gardner shared that working alongside other pros for the first time in his career has been a major catalyst in reigniting the love for the sport. He explained that titles were not his focus. He simply wanted “good, meaningful, ten-round fights,” but if all goes to plan on June 29th, the Lancashire fighter will be in contention for two coveted belts.


JACK MURPHY vs JOSHUA OCAMPO

Two-time National Amateur Champion, Jack Murphy, has been consistently impressive since transitioning to professional boxing in December 2022. With a perfect record of five wins, Murphy has yet to concede a single point in the ring and is relishing the learning experience at Hatton’s Gym in Hyde.

Murphy’s next opponent, is as tough as they get in Columbian boxer Joshua Ocampo. He has been stopped just twice, and delivered 6 KO’s from his 8 wins. Not overlooking his dance partner, Jack hopes “to do a job on him” and believes this will be his best performance yet. From what we know, you guys will be in for a treat on June 29th!


ASHLEY MARRON vs CONNOR MEANWELL

Entering his second year as a professional, Ashley Marron already has six punch perfect performances under his belt. He has dealt with a wealth of experience whilst demonstrating eye catching boxing ability. Helped by consistent, diligent camps and “a bag full of different opponents” in sparring, The Flash was preparing to take on his first opponent with a winning record in Darren Smith, however due to a change in opponents, this milestone will have to wait. With equal respect for all his opponents, Marron sees this as “another day at the office” to showcase his skills.


MONIAH MIAH vs KARL SAMPSON

It was a dream debut for Moniah Miah, against the solid southpaw Lee Hallett, back in March, but an injury in May kept the rookie professional out of the ring for a few weeks longer than he’d like. But with solid sparring rounds with Jack Murphy, and Ibrahim Nadim in the bank, Miah is eager to get back to business under the bright lights in Bolton!


IBRAHIM NADIM vs CHRISTIAN NARVAEZ

After a 15-month break due to injury, Ibrahim Nadim is ready to make a strong comeback and secure his 10th win. Under the guidance of Ricky Hatton and Blaine Younis, Ibby is training diligently and is eager to showcase his skills in just two weeks. With his relentless engine, and developing punching power, the Keighley fighter is excited to step into the ring, and we are eagerly anticipating his performance!


HARRY WINNARD vs JACK ENGLAND

Harry Winnard is set to make his highly anticipated debut in Bolton. The 24-year-old has spent three years training with Mike and Dave Jennings, concluding a successful amateur career under their guidance with the ultimate aim of transitioning to the professional ranks alongside them.

Harry is eager to showcase his aggressive fighting style, which appears to be a good fit for the professional circuit. Having the opportunity to learn from top British boxer Michael Gomez Jr., who is now part of the same stable, bodes well for the promising newcomer.


HAARIS BROWN vs JAKE POLLARD

19-year-old Haaris Brown will make his debut at the Toughsheet Stadium, against Jake Pollard, who will have surpassed his 70th fight as a professional. But this isn’t Haaris’ first rodeo, taking up boxing aged just 8, he went on to have a successful amateur campaign, alongside his brother, Naz.

The first year Criminology student, made the transition to Blundell’s Gym soon after starting university. In a thriving stable, he is surrounded by experience, setting him in good stead on his new endeavour.


YOUSIF SAEED vs JAKE SMITH

Yousif excelled as an Elite Amateur boxer, training with coach Lee Whitehead at Bridgewater Salford ABC for the latter part of his campaign. Balancing boxing with university studies, his dedication paid off as he pursued a career as a Quantity Surveyor.

In Saeed's own words, "Boxing is plan A... There's no plan B," showcasing his commitment to the sport as he ventures into the professional realm with Elite Boxing's, Alex Matvienko. The debutant says he’s “looking to steal the show!”... We cant wait!


OWEN ANDERTON vs KRISTAPS ZULGIS

Anderton made a striking entrance into the boxing scene with an impressive debut that ended in a stoppage. His last match resulted in a clear points victory. However, Owen, being a perfectionist, lives by the motto "you're only as good as your last performance." Despite the excitement from the audience and his manager, the middleweight fighter aims to make a strong statement in Bolton.


KAI DAWBER vs RYAN LABOURN

Cruiserweight Kai Dawber, who debuted at Bolton Stadium in March, will step into the squared circle once more, aiming for another flawless victory. Dawber has been training alongside Isaac Chamberlain as he geared up for his European title shot. Grounded and eager to learn, Kai is absorbing valuable insights under the guidance of the Blundell team in Wigan.


BILLY HERVEY vs ENGEL GOMEZ

After a dominant pro debut against experienced road warrior Jake Smith, Billy Hervey is returning to the Toughsheet Stadium. He has had to be patient, with six months to wait between the two outings. But with a thriving stable around him to learn from, the successful amateur is “getting more confident in every spar” and has made good use of the extra time in camp. Billy will take on Engel Gomez, who is no stranger to boxing on our shows. In over 40 professional campaigns, the Nicaraguan fighter has failed to beat the count just six times. Hervey is confident that we’ll see another pleasing performance from him, alongside three of his teammates competing on the card.
