MALONEY BRINGS BRITISH TITLE ACTION TO KENT
SAM WEBB will defend his British light-middleweight title against Prince Arron at Medway Park Leisure Centre, Gillingham on Friday May 13.
He will be risking his title for second time against the Mancunian Prizefighter winner – in what is the first ever British title contest to be staged in Kent.
Webb, 29, won the title when he shocked Anthony Small last year and made a successful defence knocking out Martin Concepcion in 11 rounds back in October.
Chislehurst’s Webb (17-1) was offered a European title fight, but opted to defend his domestic crown instead.
Promoter Frank Maloney said: “We are looking at the European title, but I would like Sam to win a Lonsdale belt outright and gain some more experience.
“The Arron fight will tell me a lot about Sam because he is up against a tall, awkward fighter who would give anyone problems.
“Trainer Bob Shannon has done a good job with Arron and he always boxes to instruction. He certainly knew the blueprint for Prizefighter.”
Arron boasts a 20-3-1 record and Maloney added: “His record is misleading. His losses came when he was overmatched early in his career.
“Although I am aware of the threat, I have no doubt that Sam will win if he is on top form.”
In the chief support Blackpool’s Brian Rose (16-1-1) makes the first defence of his English light-middleweight crown against Swanley’s unbeaten Martin Welsh (9-0).
A special attraction features Chatham heavyweight sensation Tom Dallas (14-0). His opponent is still to be named.
Tickets for the fantastic night of action are available at £30 and £65 ringside from www.frankmaloney.com and 0871 226 1508
