Richard­son on top ta­ble

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

SOUTH Ruis­lip boxer Dean Richard­son has landed a place on the undercard of Ge­orge Groves’ fight against Ed­uard Getknecht at Wem­b­ley Arena on Novem­ber 18.

The 21 year old wel­ter­weight, who is so far un­beaten in two pro­fes­sional bouts, had lined up op­po­nent num­ber threat York Hall on Oc­to­ber 29, but that fight has been scrapped in favour of a place at the top ta­ble with Groves, he re­cently got the op­por­tu­nity to train with.

Wem­b­ley will be a change of scene for Richard­son, who had fought both his bouts since turn­ing pro last Novem­ber at York Hall.

He beat Lat­vian su­per light­weight Alek­sejs Grus­tans there on his de­but back in March, be­fore also see­ing off Croa­t­ian wel­ter­weight Ivan Du­van­cic there two months later.

Out of the ring, Richard­son re­cently be­came one of Lon­don’s youngest black cab­bies after com­plet­ing The Knowl­edge and be­ing pre­sented with his Green Badge at the end of August.
