A boxing star from Sedgefield is preparing to continue his unbeaten run with a fifth straight win after turning professional last February.
Bradley Saunders, the 26 year old light welterweight from Sedgefield, is set to fight on Friday, 30th November at the MEN Arena in Manchester – his fifth outing since turning professional last February.
Speaking from the gym in his first day back training, Saunders claimed “It’s unheard of someone fighting an eight rounder in their fifth fight. I’ll take it as it comes but if the shots are there I will take him out. Whatever happens I’ll be more than fit for the full eight rounds.”
Sharing the star studded line up of boxing talent will be cricket star and television celebrity Andrew Flintoff, whose preparations will be shown in a two-part program called ‘The Gloves Are Off …’ to be showed on Sky 1. Headlining the show will be equally matched lightweights Liam Walsh and Paul Truscott.
If Bradley can triumph in November he will be eyeing a fight just weeks later in December. “I want one more fight this year in December making it six in my first year. Then next year, more of the same, whatever they ask of me.”
