Parker Ready For Title Tilt
Connor Parker has no qualms about travelling away from home in order to become a Midlands Area Title Holder tomorrow evening.
The undefeated Swadlincote super lightweight travels to Cleethorpes to take on former English champion, Kevin Hooper, for the vacant belt.
It’s the toughest test of the 23 year-old’s career but one he is relishing.
“I don’t mind travelling,” admitted Parker. “I did it a lot as an amateur and if anything I perform better.
“Kevin Hooper is a good solid fighter; it’s a step up for me but one I’m ready for.
“Training has been spot on. I haven’t really had time off training since my last fight. I hurt my hand in my last fight in June but it’s all good now.
“To win an area title would be massive an open a lot of doors. My prediction is a great fight and a big win for me.”
