Bradley Goldsmith has been added to tonight’s card.
The Coventry boxer enjoyed a stellar amateur career and is ready to kick on in the pro game.
“I first started training at eight-years-old at Triumph ABC,” he told Derek Fitzpatrick of FightCity.uk. “Originally it was just for a bit of ‘fun’ and here I am now, 24-years-old still having fun with it.
“My amateur debut was a fight that’ll stay with me forever. At just 11-years-old I was having my first bout on my club’s home show, full of nerves and excitement. I had a 3 x 1.5 minutes bout and come out victorious.
“I’ve got plenty of highlights from my amateur career. One that stands out will be winning my first national title back in 2018 and the most memorable bout will have to be against a lad called Harris Akbar in the youth ABA finals. I got beat but, it’s what made me step up my game and realise what’s required at the higher level. My amateur record was 82 bouts, 60 wins, 22 loses, two national titles and numerous box cup golds along with around 20 stoppages.”
Middleweight Goldsmith is currently 7-0 and looking to kick on in the professional ranks; starting tonight here in Wolverhampton.
“The pros were actually suited for my style. I’m a strong, come forward fighter, but I can also box on the back foot, so the change suited me.
My pro debut couldn’t have gone any better, personally. I sold well over 350 tickets, had a perfect training camp in the lead up to it and, most importantly, I got four valuable rounds against a well experienced fighter (Jordan Grannum). It’s a moment that will live with me forever.
My professional highlight so far would be headlining a show in my home town of Coventry in front of the near 400 people who come out to support me, it was special.”
