Watson set for second professional fight this weekend

BELPER boxer Gordon Watson is all set for the second professional fight of his career.

The 24-year-old Super middleweight takes on Jake Dyer from Cambridge at the Civic Centre in Mansfield on Saturday evening.

It is around a year ago that Watson secured a points victory on his professional debut when he saw off the challenge of Nottingham’s Paddy Ryan.

Manager Scott Calow is predicting a big future for the Belper man.

He said: “Gordon didn’t have an amateur career as such and has jumped straight into the professional circuit.

“He will be a good professional.”

Tickets for the Mansfield event, which starts at 8pm, are priced at £35 each and can be purhcased by contacting Gordon on 0778 6543315.
