Turley title eliminator set for December

Turley title eliminator set for December

Cefn Fforest’s Robbie Turley (13-5, 3KO) will get the opportunity of an early Christmas present on Friday 5th December at the City Academy in Bristol. The popular super-bantamweight will face Devon’s Jamie Speight (12-6, 1KO) in a ten round eliminator for the British title on a show promoted by Sanigar Events. The Welsh and Celtic champion will aim to bounce back to title success after his attempt of revenge on Dai Davies failed in July. Although suffering the second stoppage defeat of his career, Turley played his part in a classic and round seven against Davies will go down as a contender for Welsh boxing’s 2014 Round of the Year. In Speight’s last contest, the 26-year-old scored the first stoppage of his career, stopping Craig Whyatt to start his second reign as Southern Area champion. The Englishman has fought in title fights in weight categories as high as light-welterweight and ventured to super-bantamweight twice in the past, but lost both bouts on points. Earlier this year, Turley came back from a two year break from boxing due to medical queries and on his return, the Welshman had only completed eight rounds before his rematch with Davies. On the other hand, Speight’s last seven fights have been scheduled for ten rounds and he’s gone the distance five times. The current British title is vacant and it will be contested by part-Welshman Josh Wale (16-6-2, 9KO) and Liverpool’s James ‘Jazza’ Dickens in the new year. In the main event on 5th December, the world rated bantamweight Lee Haskins (29-3, 13KO) will fight an unnamed Mexican opponent. There will be 12 fights on the show and there will be several Welsh boxers confirmed on the undercard soon. Tickets for Sanigar Events’ ‘Dragon Fire’ are priced at £35 for unreserved seating and £50 for ringside seating. For tickets, call the Sanigar Events Box Office on 0117 949 6699.
