THE DE Montfort School’s sports hall will play host to Championship England boxing with 15 bouts on the card.

Next Saturday’s (March 7) event will include title fights for the Central England belts including Middleweight champion Jack Williams defending his belt against Nathan Heaney.

Heaney boxed in Evesham in February last year and was involved in a bout chosen as ABA fight of the year when beating rising pro boxer Adam Harper.

Jamal Ledoux makes the first defence of his Central England Light Heavyweight Title against Abdul Aleem Ahmed in a battle of big punchers .

Highly rated Leamington youth Danny Quartermaine challenges Macauley Owen for his Youth Lightweight Title.

Alcester juniors Luke Stanley and William Gillies make their debuts against opponents from Bournemouth and Derby.

This is the third night of Championship England Boxing to come to Evesham in the past 12 months and both previous action packed events have attracted capacity crowds.

As well as 15 bouts there is a DJ, hot food and a licensed bar.

Tickets are available on the door and are priced at ringside £25, standard £15 and concession £10. Doors open at 7pm and the first bout will begin at 7.45pm.
