Harry Webb will fight in his first six-round bout in December and he believes the step up in distance will give him the opportunity to showcase more of his skills.
The Exeter-born welterweight trains out of Paddy Fitzpatrick’s gym in Ferndale Road and returns to action on December 8th at Swindon MECA.
And Webb is relishing the chance to step up to six rounds, saying: “Six rounders suit me better, I’ve always had a professional style, even in my amateur days, the longer rounds, the more rounds, suit me better.
“I’ll be able to come in and show myself off more really. Paddy has been whistling in my ear about some youth titles, but we’ll get this one out of the way and be 5-0 get to six and seven and then start pushing for some things and bring some belts to Swindon by way of Exeter. Obviously I’m from Exeter, trying to do Exeter proud, but Swindon is a big part of my life too.”
Webb’s fifth professional bout takes place on the Kings of the Ring show promoted by Neilson Boxing in association with Paddy Fitzpatrick and Trifecta.
The show is headlined by Webb’s stablemate Ryan Martin and also features fellow Fitzpatrick-trained boxers Bec Connolly, Bradley Townsend and David Bailey.
Also on the undercard are Swindon boxers Said Eltuyev and Phil Williams while the bill is completed by Gloucester’s Max Mudway and 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
