Prospect Boxing Announce Curtain Raiser to 2012

Looking to mark the end of a successful 2012, Prospect Boxing are pleased to confirm their final show of the year at the Rivals Boxing Gym,Wishaw on December 7th in which will feature a seven fight card.

After a successful debut both Mark Parvin and Billy Campbell will be returning to action looking to build on there impressive points victories they picked up on there first fight in the paid ranks. Picking the win up at the last Prospect show on October 7th Wishaw’s Parvin overcame durable Sid Razack, while Campbell defeated Joe Collins on points in Manchester after taking the fight at less than 24 hours notice.

After 4 years out, Ryan Scott continues the route back to the professional ranks as he makes a welcome return to his hometown venue. Overcoming London’s Duncan Cottier with a convincing points victory, Scott will be looking to make an impression as he looks for a knockout victory.

After two consecutive losses, Kris “Badger” Hughes is looking to get back to winning ways and back into title contention as he takes on Newcastle’s Dougie Curran over 6 rounds.

Having picked up a broken hand in his last bout with Ghanian Richard Commey, Promoter Paul Graham reflects on Hughes bad luck this year “I really think that Kris has had a bit of bad luck this year. Not only did he pick up a broken hand in his fight with Commey, but he also broke his hand as he came off his scooter. When they were handing out Luck, I think its fair to say he was at the back of the queue “

Completing the undercard Rhys Pagan will look to make it a straight four wins for himself as he takes on William Warburton in 4 x 3 rounds, while hotly tipped Irish featherweight James Tennyson fights for the first time in Scotland as he also competes over 4x 3 rounds.

Headlining the seven fight card will see rising star Iain Butcher take a step up to championship level as he fights for the vacant ‘British Masters’ Flyweight title, against Liverpool’s Phil “Twinny” Smith .

After a close 58-57 points loss to Iain Butcher in June, Smith will be looking to avenge his only loss to date as both fighters fight for the first time over ten rounds in their respective careers to date.

“Iain’s last fight with Phil Smith really was a real barnstormer. When I paired them the first time together I didn’t expect it to be as close as it was, but I had Iain down as the winner of the fight and thought he was landing the cleaner punches” said promoter Paul Graham “There was a few complaints from their camp post fight as they thought there guy had won the fight. I was happy to offer them the rematch and I think it will make a great backdrop to a title fight and if its anywhere as good as the last fight it will make a great main event”
