Kronk Gym Fighters on TOP Show

The Kronk Gym Solihull has two of its hot prospects showcasing their skills on the Tommy Owens Promotion show at Planet Ice Solihull on June 10th.

Both fighters will be in the home corner in four-round contests on this stacked card. The two fighters who are trained by former British Middleweight champ Wayne Elcock are Dylan Norman and Elliot Hurley.

Twenty-two-year-old Dylan Norman is just starting out on his professional career making his debut back in June of 2021. The Orthodox fighter from Chelmsley Wood who is known as ‘The Lion Heart’ or ‘The Cinderella Man’ has had a total of four contests winning all of them on points. Standing five foot nine the lightweight fighter trains at the Kronk gym in Solihull under the tutelage of ex-British Middleweight champ Wayne Elcock.

Norman has been boxing since he was 10 years old and was inspired to take up the noble art, because in his words "I didn’t have the best upbringing so I always wanted to know how to fight, it was a way to help make me feel safe but as soon as I walked into a Boxing gym I felt like I was at home”.

Norman has fought the tough veteran Journeyman Liam Richards twice in a row beating him both times not losing a round. Norman will be looking to continue his winning streak taking to five without defeat.

Twenty-four-year-old Elliot Hurley is another product of the Kronk gym and has had a total of two professional contests winning one and drawing one. The five-foot-eight Birmingham welterweight fighter made his debut at the Holiday Inn Coventry Road beating Paul Scaife on points in November of 2022. Hurley will be looking to get back to winning ways after drawing against Lee Hallett in March of 2013 at the Sports Connexion Coventry. He is set to fight in a four-round contest and I’m sure with his Kronk team behind him will be looking to get the win.

Dexter’s Thoughts

I have had the privilege of watching these two hot prospects fight Norman is now four fights in and seems to get better everything he boxes. He is a very talented fighter who has the potential to go far, I have no doubt that on the tenth Norman will shine again and get the win.

Hurley drew his last fight which was a contest of two halves. He had won rounds one and two but just seemed to switch off in three and four and let his opponent back into the contest. It turned the fight into one of the best of that night but I’m sure Hurley would have just preferred the win. Hurley and Norman have a great trainer in Wayne Elcock and I’m sure Hurley has made the adjustments and will be looking to get a win at the Planet Ice on the 10th of June.

The Column will be at Planet Ice for the show reporting on every contest.

Tickets are available from the boxers and Tommy Owens Promotions.
