SMITH INJURY FREE FOR EVANS

Super-featherweight Mitchell Smith (7-0, 3KO) says that he’s punching harder than ever after recovering from a hand injury and will show he’s back to his best this Saturday (22nd February) at the York Hall. The Harrow Weald talent faces unbeaten Welsh champion Mark Evans (9-0-1, 1KO) over eight rounds – his first fight in five months since winning the Southern Area title against Scott Moises when he damaged his left hand.

Many pundits have tipped Mitchell for the top and the 21-year-old is looking to justify their faith this year. “This is good fight against Evans and will raise my performance against someone who’s undefeated,” said Smith. “It’s been frustrating being out of the ring and not being able to punch, but the hand is absolutely perfect now, I’m punching hard and confidently so I’m raring to go.  I can’t wait to get back in the ring, start fighting regularly again and showing everybody what I can do,” “I’ve had good spars against Lewis Pettitt, Tommy Martin and Michael Grant to name a few and I’ve been banging away on the bags and pads and the hand is great, right as rain, all I need to do is test it out against Evans on the night,” Remaining tickets priced at £40 and £60 are available from Queensberry Promotions on 01992 550 888. The show will be televised live and exclusive in the UK on BoxNation (Sky 437/HD 449 and Virgin 546). Join at www.boxnation.com
