Black Country Boxing Promotions had all their Champions on display at the show at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre and had TV pundit Steve Bunce there to interview. The champions who attended the show were Ijaz Ahmed, Nathan Heaney, Tyler Denny, Liam Davis, Danny Ball, Ricky Summers and Female boxer Kirstie Bavington.


Buncey first chatted to super Flyweight IBF and WBO European champion Ijaz Ahmed. Buncey talked to him about his three drawn attempts at winning the British Super Flyweight title. The thirty-year-old fighter from Birmingham whose record stands at ten wins, three draws in fifteen contests told Bunce about his frustrations over this and stated he thought he won all three. He then continued by saying he is looking to again fight for the British and Commonwealth titles and add them to his two European titles.

Buncey’s next guest in the ring was the Unbeaten Stoke on Trent’s fighter Nathan Heaney, the thirty-four-year-old who has won the IBO Continental and international Middleweight titles chatted to Bunceys about his desire to fight for bigger titles. Buncey mentions his massive following and that it will be just a matter of time before he fights at the Stoke City ground in a big stadium fight for a big title. Heaney who has won all seventeen of his fights told Buncey he would love to fight at his beloved Stoke City ground, he then informed Buncey he should be back out in September


Buncey then brought the former EBU European Welterweight female champ Kirstie Bavington into the ring. Buncey talked to the Wolverhampton ex-professional footballer and current PE teacher about winning the European titles and then contesting for the WBA inter-continental and British welterweight titles. The thirty-year-old told Buncey that she was privileged to make history by being in the first Female British title fights and learnt from both contests and hopes to fight for the British again. Bavington who has won seven fights and drawn two in thirteen contests, Bavington then informed Buncey that she will be fighting April Hunter at the AO arena in Manchester on July 1st live on Sky Sports Boxxer Promotions.


Buncey then had English and EBU External Middleweight champ Tyler Denny, they chatted about Denny’s sensational run of victory beating five unbeaten fighters and drawing against one in his last six fights. The thirty-one-year-old Southpaw from Rowley Regis expressed his desire to contest for the British Middleweight title or the EBU European title in his next few fights.


Buncey then talked to the EBU, WBC, International and British Super-bantamweight Champion Liam Davies. The unbeaten Twenty-seven-year-old from Telford chatted about his career and his massive following with Buncey pointing out that he had made a type of fortress of Telford where his last two fights have been and his next will be. Davies informed Buncey that he loved fighting in his home town in front of his Dan and family and cannot wait for his next outing there. Davies who has won all thirteen of his fights will be fighting on the 29th of July against Jason Cunningham with the EBU European, British and WBC and WBO International super bantamweight on the line.

Bunceys next guest was the current English Welterweight champ Danny Ball. Danny informed Buncey when he asked what was next for the champ. Ball who has won thirteen and drew one in fifteen fights told Buncey that Matchroom had agreed to give him a defence on one of there shows in the next five months. The twenty-six-year-old from Dudley also stated he wanted to fight for the British title soon.

Last but by no means least Buncey called English Light-Heavyweight Ricky Summers, the thirty-five-year-old from Sandwell won the English title back in March of this year beating Joel Mcintyre on points. He informed Buncey that he still had the desire to contest for the British Light-Heavyweight title and was ready to fight whoever he needed to win it.

Dexter’s Thoughts

It was fantastic to see all of the champions that Black Country Boxing Promotions have produced over the last few years. We had British, EBU’s, English European, WBC, IBO and IBF champions. It was also a pleasure to see Steve Bunce interview the fighters and chat about boxing before the boxing started. Really enjoyed this show with some great bouts of boxing on.
