Queensbury National Light Heavyweight champion Duane Sinclair is preparing for one of the biggest nights of his league career next month, when he returns to London’s iconic Alexandra Palace to defend his title.
The 31-year-old champion will step through the ropes at the historic venue in the capital on Saturday March 14th to make the first defence of his title against dangerous London rival Dwayne "Super" Jones Grant in the main event of the league's first arena show of 2015, and the Thornton Heath teacher will trade the classroom for the boxing ring once again as he looks to hand out another boxing lesson to his ambitious rival.
Sinclair was last in action back in November when he further enhanced his growing reputation as one of the most exciting boxers on British Eurosport with another title victory over Norfolk challenger David Payne to end the season on a high, and the Croydon hot shot will be hoping he can produce the same performance he showed during his last visit to the arena back in July when he stopped fellow challenger Dominic Felix at the end of the opening round to lift his first title in the competition.
Talking shortly after the bout was confirmed in central London the champion told Queensbury TV: “ I’m a London boy and Alexandra Palace feels like my stomping ground after my last visit there, and I’m promising Dwayne Jones Grant a tough nights work when we meet.
“ I don’t really know too much about him as I’ve only seen him box once before in the league back in October, but from what I did see he looks like a tidy boxer with a bit of speed so I’m going to need to be ready for him.
“Predictions wise I’m always confident that this will be a victory for team hot shot and the rest of my team at the Juggernauts gym, and as I always say I want to give this guy a boxing lesson on the night and come back to Croydon with that belt.
Sinclair’s title defence will take place on Saturday March 14th as the main event for teh stacked "Thunder In London" promotion, and to check out teh rest of teh line up click HERE
