Welshman Kyle King is Northampton boxer Nathan Reeve’s next opponent with the two squaring off at the Tower Ballroom in Birmingham on Sunday, October 6 - and tickets are now on sale.

They are priced at £30 and available to purchase from Far Cotton ABC will be one of 15 afternoon-show bouts, starting at 1pm. For more information, contact John Daly on 07738 608327.

It will be 23-year-old Reeve’s first ring action since his third round knockout of Stefan Slavchev back in March as he continues to gear up for next month’s expected fight with Doncaster’s Jason Cunningham for the vacant English flyweight belt.

King, who has a record of three wins and three defeats from his six professional fights, will be no walkover – a fact Reeve is well aware of.

“I’ll be expected to win, but I won’t under estimate him,” said Reeve, pictured.

“Like a lot of Welsh fighters, he’s tough and he even took a round off (Jason) Cunningham in his last fight.

“But I know if I go in there and box my fight the way I know I can, it’ll be enough.”

A win over King would set Reeve up nicely for his much-anticipated fight with Cunningham - undefeated in nine fights – and a shot at the English belt.

Reeve, whose own record stands at eight wins from nine fights –with his only reverse coming in Prizefighter against Mike Robinson nearly two years ago – hopes a win over Cunningham will propel him on to the big stage.

“I want to clean out the domestic scene and then move on to European and world level,” he said.

“I know I’m capable of it and I’ve got the heart and determination and skill to do it.

“I can go all the way I think in my weight division. If I get in the ring and perform, there are not many who are my size and can hit as hard as me.”
