Beast From The East Ready For Epsom

Queensbury Boxing League - Beast From The East Ready For Epsom

Russian Heavyweight Roman Ship says he is ready to blast his way into the Queensbury heavyweight division this month as he prepares for his league debut.

The former mixed martial arts exponent will swap the cage for the ring on Saturday March 17th when he competes on the league's big St Patrick's Day Showdown promotion at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.

Although well respected for his skills in the MMA world, Ship originally embarked on his combat journey in the boxing gym under the guidance of his godfather back in his native Russia, and he is eager to demonstrate the art of boxing when he climbs through the ropes later this month.

Talking to Queensbury TV earlier this week the giant Russain now based in Oxford said, " People will know me from the MMA scene, but I originally started out in boxing under the guidance of my godfather who is a boxing trainer back in Russia.

"Sometimes Heavyweight boxing can be more like a pub fight rather than a boxing contest, but I want to show people that I'm not just a mixed martial artist and that I can use the art of boxing.

After being ringside at many of the league's shows to support feloow stablemates from Oxford, Ship feels now the time is right for himself to make his mark.

" I've been a fan of the league for many years and I've seen many friends such as Terry Russell and Artur Gorka compete so I know the format very well"

" The rounds are short and intense so I've changed my training and tailored it to make sure I'm ready for that type of fight.

" I'm interested in finding out what level I'm at now and I'm excited about competing, so on March 17th I'll find out a lot more about where I can take this"

Ship's debut will feature on the undercard of the stacked St Patrick's Day Showdown promotion taking place at the famous Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey on Saturday March 17th, and for ticket
