Pro-boxing back in Swindon
9-bout card scheduled for the Oasis
Professional boxing is all set to be staged in Swindon once again.
After a gap of 15 years - when boxing was last on the bill in 1993 - a 9 bout card is scheduled to take place next month at the Oasis.
Big fight planned for Swindon:
(l-r): Marlon Reid, Liam Stinchcombe, Khristine Shergold, Adam Cummings, Keith Mayo, Chris Higgs, Jamie Cox and Ben Harding
An event that will see Swindon fighter Jamie Cox topping the bill, supported by new professional Marlon Reid and ABA finalist Ben Harding amongst others.
Behing the bill is Keith Mayo, who has just acquired his promoters licence from the British Boxing Board of Control.
"I'm really excited, and what Keith has done to bring it (boxing) back in to Swindon is a great achievment", said Marlon Reid during the launch at The De Vere Hotel.
Set to be a knock out event on the 17th October, tickets are now available from the Oasis Leisure Centre.
Tickets prices are £30, £40 and £75 for ring-side and free tickets & transport to the after show party.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Oasis Centre Swindon on 01793 445401.
