MORGAN EAGER TO IMPRESS FANS
East end boxing star Billy Morgan is planning to put on a show stopping performance in his next fight. The 22 year old from Canning Town has been absent from the ring for almost 6 months and is desperate to get back to his craft on March 21st in London to display the improved skills added to his arsenal.
“Its been a long time out but it’s not been wasted. I’ve been working hard, making adjustments and improving on the small things that count in order to improve my performances in the ring. At times it’s been frustrating but I am young and have time on my hands to be able to have this sort of preparation.”
All 7 of Morgans wins have come by way of points at the home of boxing, York Hall in Bethnal Green where he plans to extend his unbeaten run next month against an, as yet, unnamed opponant.
Since his last outing, winning all 8 rounds against Youssef Al Hamidi, the young lightweight has been listening and learning patiently from trainers Mark and Jimmy Tibbs.

“Bill has heart, skill, great work ethic and fight instinct and he ain’t a bad banger at all. Yes, lately he has moved on physically and mentally and has grown in confidence which he has never lacked.” Says Mark.
2013 is lined up to be a big year for the ambitious youngster with the hope of entering championship level and challenging for titles very soon.
“If things have gone to plan then I’m sure a Southern Area or English Title challenge will be just around the corner.” Says Morgan.
Coach Mark Tibbs confirms this, stating “Game as a bagel and a perfect gentleman, I’m very confident he will be Championship material very, very soon!”

The fight takes place on March 21st at York Hall, London with the headlining fight between British and Commonwealth Champ Billy Joe Saunders and hard hitting challenger Matthew Hall.
Chief support on the card sees Penge welterweight Bradley Skeete make the first defence of his Southern Area title against Basingstoke’s Darryl Still. Skeete won the title in December when he stopped South London rival Chas Symonds in four rounds at the ExCeL London who had previously won the title from the challenger Still.
Tony Conquest’s rematch with WBO International Cruiserweight Champion Neil Dawson, which was due to take place at Wembley Arena on Saturday, March 16, will now take place on this show. Conquest will be seeking revenge after he suffered a shock first round loss to big-hitting Dawson in December at the ExCeL.
Also featuring on the undercard is some of Britain’s most talented young fighters including Cheshunt’s undefeated super-flyweight prospect Charlie Hoy; middleweight Tom Baker from Chingford and super-middleweight John Dignum from Bowers Gifford.
An eagerly anticipated professional debut will come from Simon Vallily from Middlesborough in a four round cruiserweight contest. Vallily won heavyweight gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and in the previous year he captured the ABA Super-Heavyweight title.
