Boxing brothers Chad '2 Slick' Sugden and Regis 'The First' Sugden share the ring on the No Hype Required show
Professional boxers Chad and Regis Sugden, of Newark, are set to share the same card when they walk out into the ring at Nottingham’s Harvey Hadden Stadium on March 16.
On a night that sees his younger brother Regis ‘The First’ Sugden make his pro boxing debut, 24-year-old Chad ‘2 Slick’ Sugden will be taking on an unbeaten opponent on Scott Calow’s No Hype Required show.
With ten fights to his name since switching from kick-boxing to boxing in May 2016, Chad will be looking to add another win to his record when he boxes the hard-hitting Pole Sebastian Slusarcyzk.
“Sebastian’s not only unbeaten, he’s remained unbeaten as an away boxer and he has stopped 75% of his opponents,” said Chad.
“But if there’s one thing people know about me, it’s that I never shy away from a challenge and he’s going to find that, compared to any of the opponents he’s faced before.
“I’m a totally different proposition. This one won’t be going the distance and I’ll be the one that stops it doing so.”
Suggy’s Gym head coach Dean Sugden said: “We’ve found a strong and dangerous opponent in Sebastian.
“Chad will be going out there to prove that he walks the walk and doesn’t just talk the talk as so many others do.
“It’s going to be quite a night, not just for us but for all the friends and fans who have supported Chad and Regis over the years.
“Not only will they get to see Chad move things up a notch, they will be there to watch Regis take the first steps on his new journey.
“They will be seeing them both on the same card for the first time since 2014 in their pro kickboxing days.”
Returning to the discipline after an amateur career which saw him win 132 of his 148 fights, followed by a successful and exciting time as a professional Mixed Martial Artist, 23-year-old Regis is promising an explosive display when he opens the show.
Still waiting for official confirmation of his opponent, he said: “Right now, I’ve got just three words for fight fans out there - don’t miss it.”
