Speight vs Wheeler - Southern Area Championship

04/09/2018

Sanigar Events are pleased to announce a night of Championship boxing at the Dolman Hall, Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol on Saturday October 20th.

The event will feature a showdown between featherweight rivals Ryan Wheeler and Jamie Speight for the Southern Area Championship. The champion, Speight won the title in 2017 with a 10th round technical knock out over Londoner Martin Hillman. Since then he has had a mixed run of form but is determined to hold on to Southern Area bragging rights over the undefeated man from Frome. Wheeler who's impressive record now stands at 13 straight wins with just 1 draw is now keen on moving through the championship levels and his first step will be to dethrone Jamie Speight.

"I have had a good year so far with 2 solid wins, I want to pick up the Southern Area strap and get myself in a strong position for next year. Jamie is a very technical fighter, we have fought before, it will be a good fight but I know I have the beating of him especially with my Frome fans cheering me on."

Pawel August returns after notching up 2 wins earlier in the year including his first knock out against Curtis Gargano. Impressive lightweight Tim Cutler will box against Derbyshire's Lee Connelly, Cutler had to dig deep in the fight of the night last time out. He showed grit, rising from his first career knock down to outpoint the game Jordan Ellison.

South Bristol's favourite middleweight Aaron Sutton is keen to showcase more of his skills on October 20th, Sutton beat experienced journeyman Lewis Van Poetsch in March and has been working hard behind the scenes. Exciting fan favourite Faheem Khan will travel up from Exeter to take on Wigston welterweight Michael Williams over 4 rounds. Khan is always in a brawl and his come forward style will no doubt ignite the atmosphere at Ashton Gate.

Bristol super welterweight Sam Smythe continues his professional journey when he steps in with Midlander Dwain Grant. Lightweight Tyler Davies aims to make it a perfect 5 out of 5 wins and Weston's 'Raging Bull' Liam Hunt will look to get back to winning ways following a gruelling contest against Nottingham's Derrick Osaze in June.

Undefeated Jack Bellingham from Plymouth will make his first appearance in Bristol after clocking up 4 home wins in Plymouth and debutant Saitemin Eltuyev completes the action packed card.
