Jones Lands English Title Shot

Troy Jones will get a shot at domestic glory when he boxes for the English light heavyweight title on July 6th at the Eastside Rooms in Birmingham on BCB’s ‘For King and Country’.

The 25-year-old from Birmingham is unbeaten in ten fights and made light work of his last opponent, the tricky Prince Oko Nartey, on May 10th, stopping him inside three rounds. His first shot at a belt has come at just the right time for the Lee Beard-trained heavy hitter, and his promoter, Errol Johnson, has secured him a home advantage. 

“It will mean everything to me to win the English title, said Jones. I didn’t have an outstanding amateur career like some fighters did, so to get to this point is already a massive achievement, but it is only the start. It’s the beginning of another chapter in my career; the apprenticeship’s been served. I can’t wait to get in there and get the job done. There will be big things to come in my career, 100% through hard work and dedication.”

Details of the opponent and the full undercard will be released shortly, and it promises to be a show worthy of the title.

Tickets for ‘For King and Country’ are now priced at £40 standard and £80 VIP from the boxers directly or by emailing
