Queensbury Welterweight prospect Alex Bellingham says he ready to put on a show for his fans in his second appearance in the UK’s premier boxing next month, as he prepares for battle at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.
The 22-year-old former Haringey Box Cup gold medalist was last in action back in June when he made a winning start to his Queensbury Boxing League career by beating London southpaw Jerome Prince in a tough debut on the undercard of the History In The Making promotion, and after watching the fight back on Eurosport Bellingham has promised to bring more fireworks to his performance when he laces the gloves back on in Surrey.
Talking ahead of his September 24th appearance when he takes on York’s John Joe Bedford Bellingham said “ I only showed about 50% of what I’m capable of in the fight with Prince, but on the 24th I’m looking to put on a show for all my fans”
“ When I fought Prince I’d only had 4 weeks notice for the fight, and even though I’d been in the gym training regularly I wasn’t in the best physical shape”
“ This time around I’ve been in the gym solidly since my holiday just after the last fight, and I’m feeling fitter and stronger.
"I’ve also moved down a division to Welterweight and I think you are going to see a much sharper display, and I want to be much busier and really press the fight this time”
“ When people come out and support me they pay good money to see a performance, and they want to watch an exciting fight, so that is what I’m looking to do against Bedford and get myself in a position to move towards the bigger names in the division"
Bellingham’s showdown with Bedford will take place at the Reisser All Guns Blazing promotion headlined by the second professional appearance of Croydon's Gareth Gardner on Saturday September 24th at the famous Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey, and for ticket information contact the box office on 0203 751 8599
