This Saturday VIP Boxing Promotions is back at the Bolton Whites Hotel for an evening of great local action.
After the recent victories for VIP promoted Josh Warrington and Ryan Doyle its time to turn the attention to some of the North West’s up and coming talent.
Dale “Canelo” Coyne (13-0) returns to the ring for his 14th professional outing as he continues to push on up the rankings after impressive wins over Darryl Sharp, Ben Davies and Julio Cesar in his last 3 outings. Coyne faces off against Nicky Jenman (20-11) who has been in with Liam Cameron and Andrew Robinson so a win here will be a statement of intent for the Ancoats man.
Preston cruiserweight Damian Chambers (4-0) gets his 5th outing on Saturday as he looks to continue an impressive start to his career. Chambers who is trained by Matthew Hatton has stopped the last two of his opponents and looked explosive in doing so another victory in the same fashion on Saturday will prompt a step up in opposition as he looks to continue his climb up the cruiserweight ladder.
Luke “Evo” Evans (7-0) makes his emotional return to the ring 10 months after a horrific knife attack left him scarred for life. Evans who was touted as one of BoxNation’s ones to watch in 2017 has been back in training over at Hatton’s health and fitness in Hyde and is ready to make a statement and resume the impressive start he had to his career back in 2016/17.
Hear what Luke's new trainer had to say about his return to the ring
It’s been a busy few months for Jack Cullen (12-1) as he is back in action in his hometown of Bolton. After a very impressive display in Ireland’s Last Man Standing tournament he has since picked up a victory over Harry Matthews. Another win for Cullen will put him right in the mix for some potential tasty North West battles with the likes of Jack Flatley and Ben Sheedy around the Manchester area all at similar stages of their respective careers.

James Moorcroft (6-0) looks to make it seven out of seven as he takes on Nathan Hardy on Saturday night. Moorcroft has had a successful start to his career and some impressive victories over well-known fighters on the circuit including Chris “Twinny” Jenkinson and Dale Arrowsmith. A victory here will secure Moorcroft his first professional title as the bout is for the English challenge belt.
