Ryszard Lewicki makes an appearance in his third outing this year, with 2 KOs in 2 the 25 year old aims to impress again and make it a hat trick of knockouts!!
Brian Phillips was due to box Michael Gomez Jr as previously mentioned but for the ‘Manc Mexican’ to pull out days before with an injury which he has shown via his instagram, an unfortunate situation for the champion who I wish a speedy recovery. Kevin Maree has kept his word and has seen him keep Phillips on the card with his manager Steve Wood vocalising his gratitude and explained that this is the way it should be with all managers, especially on the small hall circuit.
