Telford boxer Bradley Thompson is ready take his frustrations out on his opponent when he finally makes his professional debut next weekend.
The former amateur star – brother of English Bantamweight Champion Liam Davies – has had to wait patiently for his pro bow after seeing boxing shows curtailed for large period during the COVID-19 Pandemic. But now, finally, Thompson has a date with destiny.
The former Donnington ABC fighter appears on Fight Zone’s maiden show at the Fightzone Arena, Sheffield on 21st May.
“The last year has been a bit frustrating having my debut in Telford cancelled and then not really knowing when I was out,” Thompson admitted. “However it’s just given me more time to work on my craft and keep building on things in the gym, I knew I just had to stay ready.
“Not knowing when I was going to get the call kept me focused because I knew I could have six weeks notice or an opportunity could pop up in short notice and I wanted to get out as soon as I could, so I made sure I was on my game.
“My brother Liam also won the English title whilst we was in lockdown so I was able to prepare with him. I’m very excited to showcase everything I’ve been working on since I came over to the pro ranks & I think with my amateur background I can go a long way.
“I’m excited to be on Fight Zone; I think it’s a good chance to show everyone what I’m about. I’m ready to show people what I’m made of.”
