Corcoran Added To York Hall Card As Shinkwin, McNess Get Opponents, More

By Elliot Foster (@FreelanceFoz)

Gary Corcoran will step through the ropes again next week.

The undefeated Wembley light middleweight has been added to Andy Ayling’s June 12 show, live and on BoxNation (Sky channel 437/HD 490, Virgin channel 546 and TalkTalk channel 525).

Corcoran, 24, is set to face an opponent to be named in a warm-up clash at York Hall, ahead of his first title opportunity next month.

‘Hellraiser’, who has an unblemished ring record of 11-0 (5), will vie for his first piece of silverware at Wembley’s SSE Arena on July 24, but he must first get past the opponent he’ll face in a week’s time.

Elsewhere, bill-topper Miles Shinkwin will face Hungarian opposition.

The 26-year-old, who retained the Southern Area light heavyweight title in March with a stoppage of Richard Horton, will box in an international contest over 10 rounds against Bela Juhasz.

Jusahz, 28, from Budapest, has a record of nine wins from 13 fights, with six wins coming early.

Former Commonwealth cruiserweight champion Tony Conquest will return over eight rounds on the card, while there is action for undefeated light heavyweight Anthony Yarde –– who’ll fight for the second time in the paid ranks –– and Boy Jones Jr.

The enigmatic flyweight prospect Prince Patel will debut under Frank Warren in his second pro outing, undefeated Sudbury light middleweight Billy Bird (10-0, 2KOs) and 23-year-old Wales light welterweight Zack Davies (2-0) are set to see action, while there are debuts for 21-year-old Leicester super featherweight Leon Woodstock and Sam McNess, who’ll campaign at welterweight.

Former Team GB ace McNess will face Hull’s Paul O’Brien, who has lost all nine to date, being stopped once, over four rounds.

Tickets, priced at £40 and £60, are available from Ticketmaster at
