February Firepower 2 Line Up

Ben Vaughan is closing in on a major title fight and will box for the first time this year when he headlines BCB’s ‘February Firepower 2’ at the Park Inn by Mercure in Northampton on February 17th.

The 24-year-old is now unbeaten in seven contests and is coming in to this one off the back of a career best win when he clinically stopped inside four rounds back in October. The welterweight from Northampton had to overcome a cut and chose to box at a ferocious pace that his opponent struggled to handle, eventually leaving his corner with no option but to throw the towel in.

Whilst waiting for a title shot, he is keen to stay busy and will get a solid run out back in his hometown after boxing away in Portsmouth and Birmingham in his previous two.

Nico Michael also boxed in Birmingham in his previous bout and will be looking forward to heading back to Northampton as he looks to build on his impressive start to life in the paid ranks. The 28-year-old super flyweight is unbeaten in four and has showed continued improvement since turning over in November 2022.

All those contests have gone the distance against some of the division’s most experienced opponents and will have given Michael a great footing as he looks to push on this year.

The exciting Dempsey Madden bounced back from a shock loss to Estonian Dmitri Protkunas at the end of 2022 with a moral-boosting points win over Dale Arrowsmith in June last year. The 32-year-old from Daventry who trains out of the Shoebox gym is looking to knuckle down and push on this year and knows activity will be key.

His record stands at four wins from five, and he is looking to build on that when he gets his first run out in a four-round contest on February 17th.

Doina Costin is set to make her professional debut after boxing as an amateur career for the Shoe-box gym. The super bantamweight from Northampton has patiently waited to make her first appearance in the pro game and will be looking to make a statement in her opener.

The card’s second debutant is the larger than life Klinton Baptiste, who will be itching to let his hands go after his original debut date in December was canceled at the last minute. The super middleweight from Luton boxed amateur for Hoddesdon ABC and has turned over under the guidance of manager Errol Johnson.

Shaun Morton overcame a frustrating draw on his debut against Josh Cook by beating Paul Cummings on points in his follow-up bout. The 23-year-old from Northampton won each of the four rounds against the ever-durable Cummings and banished any frustration he will have felt after his debut.  

The super welterweight is a graduate of Kettering Boxing Club who he represented 25 times and after a stop-start couple of years, he is ready to push on this year.
