Two Newark boxers will be aiming for their third successive professional wins when they step into the ring on Saturday.

Nina Bradley and Jake Sharp, who both made their professional debuts earlier this year, are among eight fighters on the Midland Pride show at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Bilborough, on Saturday, November 25.

Bradley will be fighting for the women’s International Welterweight Challenge Belt against Kim Angelina Jaeckel, who is unbeaten in her home country of Germany. Bradley, a former amateur champion, won her first two fights on points after turning professional earlier this year.

The event has been put together by Newark promoter Carl Greaves, who said: “It should be a great show with some good fights.”

It was revealed this week that light-middleweight Sharp, who claimed two stoppage wins from his first fights, will now face Kamil Al Temimi, a Polish fighter based in Wales.

Sharp, who is trained by former masters champion Andrew Lowe and managed by Greaves, had been due to fight Worksop’s Darren Snow, but he was stopped in his last bout and cannot figure in Saturday’s show.

Carl Greaves has again been working with former world champion David Avanesyan.

The top Russian welterweight has been training for a month at Greaves’ academy in Newark ahead of his return to the ring at the beginning of December.

Avanesyan first chose to work with Greaves two years ago and won the interim world title in Monte Carlo. He retained his top spot at a fight in Arizona before losing for just the second time in his career in his first defence of the regular WBA world welterweight title.

Avanesyan will be fighting Alexey Evchenko in Moscow for the IBF International Welterweight Title in Moscow on December 2.
