Tommy Ward is set to fight Sean Davis for the Super Bantamweight British title on Saturday night.

The North East boxer makes the first defence of his British title on a stacked card at the Metro Radio Arena.

The fight will be his second with Frank Warren, after his first resulted in him beating James Dickens to claim the title he now holds.

And despite the main event being a highly anticipated rematch between Liam Smith and Liam Williams, fans in the arena will be keen to see their man return for a homecoming fight.

After defeating Dickens, the 23-year-old spoke of his desire to win world honours.

He said: “I really believe I can be world champion and I’m not going to stop until I get there.

“I trust in my team to get me the right fights, I’m on my journey and I’m enjoying every bit of it.”

 

The County Durham man also expressed his desire for a big-time boxing show to be back in the North East and that is exactly what Warren and his promotional team have done.

“There is some real talent in the North East and it’s about time a big television show was brought up here for fans to see exactly what us Northern lads can do,” he said.

The card also features other local fighters, including Glenn Foot in an excellent fight against Josh Leather and knockout artist Troy Williamson.
