Swindon’s Bec Connolly expects to be in yet another toe-to-toe fight when she returns to the ring at Swindon MECA in December.
The Paddy Fitzpatrick trained boxer is on the undercard to Neilson Boxing’s Kings of the Ring show which sees Swindon welterweight Ryan Martin headline the bill.
Connolly, fresh from a gruelling fight against former England amateur international Terri Harper, is excited to be fighting in front of her home fans on the December 8th show which is being promoted in association with Paddy Fitzpatrick and Trifecta.
“To be back in Swindon, on a home show, and fighting in front of my home crowd means everything to me,” said Connolly. “I had my professional debut at MECA and Swindon supports me so, so much.”
And Connolly plans to put on a real show for her home fans and has vowed to be in yet another tough fight, adding: “There are no easy fights in women’s boxing.
“The women are there to take the wins, especially the British women. We want these hard fights, we are in these hard fights.
“Nobody else would fight Terri Harper but we want to be the best and we want to fight the best so we went up there and I performed the best I have ever done.
“We don’t want the easy fights, it is sink or swim and we are definitely not sinking. I may not be swimming to victory but I am definitely swimming with these ladies at this level, I am proving my level every single time.”
Joining Connolly and stablemate Martin on the show is fellow Swindon boxers Said Eltuyev and Phil Williams along with the unbeaten Harry Webb, who trains out of Fitzpatrick’s Boxing Gym.
The bill is also completed by Witney’s Bradley Townsend, Gloucester’s Max Mudway, Gloucester’s David Bailey, Weston Super Mare’s Shaun Lambert and Bicester’s Scott James.
Tickets are now on sale and can be obtained from any of the boxers or via the Neilson Boxing website www.neilsonboxing.co.uk
