Fresh Start For Webb

Harry Webb has a fresh approach, a new trainer, and a focused mindset ahead of his next fight on BCB Promotions ‘Clash On The Coast’ at the Rivieria International Centre in Torquay on May 18th.

The 27-year-old from Exeter is boxing for the first time since a frustrating draw last September against Lee Hallett. It was a tricky night for Webb, who dropped from his natural weight class, weighing in at 141 lbs, ten pounds less than his previous contest.

“I dropped a lot of weight for that fight, and my strength just went, said Webb. My energy was sapped, and I was nowhere near my best. Despite that, I thought I did just enough to win but had to settle for the draw. Since that fight, I have changed my coaching setup, and I am now working with Darren Hamilton in Bristol, which has been great for me. We have been in camp for around eight weeks now, and he has added things to my game and has gotten some great sparring in the gym.

Like many boxers in the southwest, Webb has had to rack up the miles to get slots on shows at the likes of the York Hall in Bethnal Green and is grateful that fight number twelve will take place much closer to home.

“It’s a massive help when it comes to selling tickets boxing in Torquay; it’s less than thirty minutes from home and will be a lot better. I have had a lot of fights in London, and it’s hard for my family and supporters to come see me.

Webb is entering his eighth year in the paid ranks and knows that he is entering a key stage in that journey if he is to realise his ambitions in the sport.

“I have cut back my hours at work so I can have more time to train and focus on my boxing. This fight is about getting back to winning ways and then hopefully pushing on to a Southern Area title later this year.

Tickets for Clash on the Coast are now available, priced at £40 standard and £80 VIP, from the boxers directly or by emailing
