Nathan Heaney is expecting a tougher test than he originally planned after a late change of opponent ahead of his Midlands Area Title showdown in Stoke tomorrow evening.
Heaney was slated to
take on Ryan Aston for the strap but, after the Dudley man pulled out, West
Bromwich’s Tom Stokes answered the call.
Stokes knows all about
the area crown having lost to former Champion, Tyler Denny, last year. Heaney
knows all about Stokes too and is expecting a hard night’s work whilst
remaining in confident mood.
change of an opponent is an expected part this game” Heaney told
bcb-promotions.com. “I was disappointed; mainly due to the fact that when my
original opponent accepted I thought to myself ‘I reckon this lad will pull out
as it gets closer to’ and I was right.
I now have a tougher opponent in the form of Tom Stokes, who has fought for the
title before. It is set to be a fantastic night. Styles make fights and I have
no doubt ours will be an exciting one to watch. The atmosphere is going to be
electric and I can’t wait!”
