CRAIG JOHNS BREAKS THE FIRST RULE Fighting Chance trio on the bill at St James’ Park
“I’ll always look to put my opponent away as it is.
“I’ll look for a mid-fight stoppage again this time around so that’s what I’m predicting.”
Humble is also looking ahead to the bigger fights with the featherweight star ready for whatever comes his way.
With limited options the lighter the weight category it will be interesting to see what comes up for him. “Hopefully, after this fight, if there’s somebody out there for me, then yes, I’ll look at moving up and getting that Area title shot as soon as possible,” Jamie said.
“I’m more than fit enough to go in there and do the ten rounds and I’m in a great gym to be able to do it.
“It’s good getting the rounds in and I’ve honed my boxing skills but I’m also hoping to be able to get a few more stoppage wins Kyle Redfearn Chad Ellis
moving forward as well. The sparring I’ve had has been top-notch.
“It’s certainly been the best camp I’ve had so far.
“I’ve been away with Jack Bateson, and done some quality work over in Peterlee as well, whereas here, in our gym, it’s been more about the techniques.”
Basi Razaq already knows he has a title opportunity lined up if he gets through this show unscathed.
The Mark Clauzel-managed fighter is scheduled to oppose Tom Whitfield later on this year for the Area title vacated by Billy Snaith. Three new kids on the block appear today as well.
Chad Ellis makes his professional debut, amateur stand-out and Frank Warrensigned Joe Maphosa has his second professional contest ahead of his appearing at the Metro Radio Arena next month, and Chrissy Wood (now managed by Steve Wraith) returns after four years in the wilderness.
A TRIO of Fighting Chance fighters make up half of the bill at St James’ Park this afternoon as Kyle Redfearn and Jamie Humble, both chasing down Area title opportunities, are joined on the card by recent addition to the camp, Chad Ellis.
Redfearn and Humble have both made unbeaten starts to their professional careers and will look to continue that run today with the pair preparing to move up.
Redfearn, who has stopped three of his four opponents to date, is gunning for more.
“I’ve been tested a few times in the opening four bouts but it was nice to get the rounds in as it comes in handy the more you move up the rankings,” stated Kyle.
“I had limited amateur experience, and I stopped two of the three there as well and I boxed some good lads.
“Now, even this fight, these lads are coming here to fight, to have a go, but the more they open up for me the more I’ll take the quick finishes.
