Essex Welterweight Nigel Coe has set his sights on winning titles in the UK’s premier boxing league this season, but must first get past dangerous puncher Danny "Relentless" Stalford in his May 14th showdown.
The 39 year-year-old banger from Brentwood recorded an explosive first round debut win back in February against former professional James Ancliff at the Copthorne Hotel in West Sussex, and after hardly breaking a sweat in his debut win, the Essex stylist will now go head to head with Surrey power puncher Stalford in a potentially explosive title eliminator.
"I've watched some of Stalfords fights in the league and he looks strong and powerful with a compact style, so for this fight I'll have to stick to my boxing as you don't want to get caught by one of his big punches, said Coe.
"I got a bit excited against Ancliff, but it was only after the fight I found out he was an ex-pro and had so much experience, continued Coe.
"It was a magic day. The whole show is really professionally done, and now I want to keep winning so I can hopefully secure a National or maybe even a British title this season"
Coe, previously represented Hornchurch & Elm Park ABC, training alongside the likes of Colin Lynes and Nicky Cook who would both went on to great success in the professional ranks, and after taking a long break from boxing since 2005, Coe is determined to make up for lost time and does not intend to hang around as he looks to secure his title shot.
"My training is going really well. I'm training with professionals and I've got the perfect sparring partner to help me get ready for Stalford. If I keep my boxing head on this should be a good night for me."
Coe versus Stalford is just one of a host of huge showdowns taking place on the Reisser High Stakes promotion on Saturday May 14th at the Millennium arena in West Sussex, and for ticket information contact the Box Office on 0203 751 8599.
