9 Nov

Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro – London

This coming Sunday no less than four upcoming prospects from Johnny Eames’ world class TRAD TKO Boxing Gym will be in action at the Miranda Carter’s Left Jab Promotions ‘Storming Sunday’ event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London. Heading up the show is one of the famous fight factory’s brightest young stars Nathan ‘Sugar Boy’ Weise, who will facing former Southern Area super welterweight champion Ryan Toms.

Weise, who is coached by Mark Tibbs – the son of the UK’s top coach Jimmy Tibbs – will be looking to extend his six fight unbeaten run as preparation for a domestic title challenge in 2012. Making a welcome return to the ring, following a thirty month sabbatical from the sport, is exciting Neasden welterweight Eddie Corcoran, who faces Birmingham’s Dee Mitchell in a four rounder.

According to his manager/coach Johnny Eames, Corcoran – who has just the one loss on his record, against Commonwealth Champion Denton Vassell – has been totally focused on getting back in action and has been sensational in sparring. Holloway teenager Brett O’Callaghan will be making his third professional appearance on Sunday.

The nineteen year old super welterweight will be facing relative newcomer Liam Griffiths from Bogner Regis. In his two previous fights the O’Callaghan overcame highly experienced opponents – 101 fight veteran Billy Smith and Matt Scriven, who had a slightly lower 92 fight record – so facing a Griffiths, who has had just six pro fights to date, will be a welcome change for the youngster.

The final TRAD TKO fighter taking part on Sunday is Mitcham, Surrey’s Danny ‘Cassius’ Connor.  The Alec Wilkey trained 25-year-old will be looking to return to winning ways following his loss to Matthew McAllister in Glasgow a couple of weeks ago. Prior to that loss, Connor was on a three fight winning streak. On Sunday, Connor will be facing Welsh banger Russell Pearce.

Miranda Carter’s ‘Storming Sunday’ also features Luton’s Duane ‘Bang Bang’ Grimes against Swansea’s Craig Dyer, unbeaten Luton based Bulgarian super lightweight Bobby George will face a yet to be named opponent. In addition, no less than three local fighters will be making the professional debuts: lightweight Josh Thorn will face Gosport’s Sean Tribble, super middleweight Scott Harley will get a stern test from Hayes Middlesex’s Darren McKenna and Rydas Vaivads against a yet to be named opponent.

Nathan Weise versus Ryan Toms tops the bill for Miranda Carter’s Left Jab Promotions ‘Storming Sunday’ event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Sunday 13th November 2011.
