Ben Day set for first title challenge

Published 1 Comments

Unbeaten Ben 'The Entertainer' Day is set to challenge for the vacant International Masters Bronze light-welterweight title at London's York Hall on March 7 in his first ever title fight over eight three minute rounds.

The unbeaten 35-year-old Londoner, originally hailing from Teignmouth, Devon, recently fought at York Hall to reach his sixth win against seasoned campaigner Ben Kneller. It was Day's first fight in 14 months after a draw against Paul Haines at the Camden Centre in 2013.

Day managed to reach the position of six fights unbeaten without the help of a trainer but after a complicated year with an extended ring absence due to cancelled fights, setbacks and a change of promoters, Day has bounced back with the well-earned victory over Kneller under the tutelage of his new boxing coach, Alec Wilkey.

The title fight will take place on a Goodwin Main Events show titled The Golden Day and will showcase some of the UK's brightest talents such as unbeaten light-welterweight, Sohail Ahmad 5(1)-0-0 who is also looking to fight for titles in 2015.

Ricky Hatton's talented trio of brothers, collectively known as The Upton Clan, will all be making an appearance on the bill. Anthony 7(3)-0-0 and Paul 5(1)-0-0 will both be looking to continue their unbeaten runs whilst Sonny 4(3)-2(1)-0 will be looking to bounce back from his controversial loss to Gary Cooper 3(1)-14(2)-1 at the same venue last October.
