Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - BOX­ING SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD boxer Jake Haigh is set to make his re­turn to the ring this week­end when he com­petes on a bill at Mid­dle­ton Arena.

The 22-year-old is fight­ing on a Black Flash Pro­mo­tions show that has been put to­gether by Pat Bar­rett.

Haigh has made a per­fect start to his pro­fes­sional ca­reer, win­ning all three of his fights since mak­ing his de­but, with two of those vic­to­ries com­ing by stop­page.

His last fight came in Fe­bru­ary when he stopped Bryn Wain in the third round of

‘Haigh won all three of his fights since de­but’

their bout at Fenton Manor Sports Com­plex in Stoke-on-Trent.

Haigh is one of sev­eral prospects that will be in ac­tion on the card in Mid­dle­ton on Satur­day, with English light­mid­dleweight cham­pion Matthew Ryan also fight­ing.

Ryan won the English ti­tle in his last fight when he de­feated Sonny Up­ton by ma­jor­ity de­ci­sion in March, and will now have a keep busy fight against ex­pe­ri­enced veteran Wil­liam War­bur­ton.

Two of Ryan’s stable­mates are also fight­ing, as un­beaten light heavy­weight Lyn­don Arthur takes on Nathan King.

Arthur is 5-0 in his pro­fes­sional ca­reer, with four of those wins com­ing by knock­out, in­clud­ing a fourth round stop­page win against Toni Bilic at the Bowlers Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre in March.

Chris Mon­aghan will look to try and re­turn to win­ning ways on the bill when he faces Casey Blair.

Mon­aghan was held to a draw against Sam Omidi in his last fight, mean­ing he now has a record of five wins, one draw and one de­feat.
