Sam Webb makes his first British light-middleweight title defence next month knowing he could be fighting for the European championship in early 2011.
.
He first must overcome Martin Concepcion (17-7) at The Troxy, London, E1 on Saturday October 16, risking the crown he took from Anthony Small in March.
.
Chislehurst’s Webb (16-1) is currently rated number one in the EBU rankings, but hopes to become the official challenger for the title won by Czech Lucas Konecny at the weekend.
.
Promoter Frank Maloney: “There will be a new mandatory contender when the next EBU rankings are published and I hope Sam gets nominated.
.
“If he does, then he should be guaranteed an EBU title shot by the middle of next year.
.
.
“Apart from those closest to him, nobody gave him a chance against Small, but he caused an upset and won clearly.
.
“Konecny looked a real handful when he beat Matthew Hall on Saturday, but Sam is a very under-rated performer and a bit of a dark horse.”
.
Concepcion, 29, is his best ever form and with ten KO wins, Webb will respect the Leicester puncher’s power.
.
Maloney added: “I have promoted several of Martin’s fights and he is never in a bad contest. The styles of himself and Sam mean a cracking battle.”
.
The full undercard will be announced later this week, but tickets are available priced £35 and £85 from www.frankmaloney.com and 0871 226 1508
