HORSESHOE amateur boxing club will kick off the latest Pro-Am show to be staged in Swindon this weekend.

The Gypsy Lane-based club compete in 12 bouts against a London Select team at the PlayFootball Arena on Saturday before Bristol’s Ashley Lane headlines the professional show when facing Preston-based South African Michael Ramabeletsa for the vacant Commonwealth super-bantamweight title.

The show, promoted by Sanigar Events in association with Neilson Boxing, will also see new English super-lightweight champion Akeem Ennis-Brown in a six-round non-title bout with Chris Truman.

Neilson Boxing’s Mark Neilson said: “For both boxers (Lane and Ramabeletsa) this is a massive opportunity to get some great exposure.

“Gamal Yafai, Kid Galahad and Carl Frampton have all used the Commonwealth title as a springboard for bigger things.

“Lane and Ramabeletsa are used to taking fights at short notice and going on the road but this time have both had full training camps with plenty of notice.

“This main event has all the hallmarks of a great toe-to-toe encounter.”

Also on the packed card are Sanigar boxers Tim Cutler, Wayne Ingram and Aaron Sutton.

Chris Sanigar added: “I am very excited at the boys travelling up the M4 to box in Swindon.

“This should be a great night of boxing and hopefully Ashley will win the belt and be added to our list of champions.

“Our three prospects will gain priceless experience being on a championship fight card and will all hope that one day they too will be boxing for major honours.”
