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 and 0871 226 1508
