Redhill boxer Ben Davies to return to the ring
2:39pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
Redhill boxer Ben Davies has set his sights on title glory as he returns to action in the Queensbury Boxing League later this month.
The big-hitting Middleweight prospect will be climbing into the ring at the Effingham Park Hotel in Copthorne on Saturday, October 26.
Facing him will be veteran Mark Shrubb in his first outing in the league for nearly two years.
Davies left the competition at the beginning of 2012 to compete in the amateur ranks, and after enjoying a successful stint in Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) bouts that saw him captain Sussex, Davies feels more than ready to return to the UK’s premier boxing league.
Davies, 24, a mechanic, said: “ I can’t wait to get back into the league now, and I’m itching to fight right now.”
He said: “ When I left the league, I was eager to improve my knowledge and experience in the sport, and come back better and stronger, and I really feel now I will be much better equipped to succeed.”
He added: “Last time out in the competition I beat Steven Farress over three rounds, and it was important to get the win, but now I’m ready to really do something in the competition and October 26th can’t come soon enough.
“My training has been going really well for the fight, and I think this is by far the best build-up to a fight I’ve ever had, so now it's time to put everything together and achieve my goal of being the first champion out of the White Dogs Boxing Club.”
Davies' return to action will feature on the undercard of the big autumn show at the Effingham Park Hotel.
