30th October 2012
The Queensbury Boxing League have promised fight fans an early Christmas cracker on November 24th, when the promotional outfit stage their final event of their packed 2012 season of boxing in front of the British Eurosport camera’s.
The competition headed up by former English Welterweight champion Ross Minter and promotional partner Alan Foley has seen its exciting boxing format gain national and international appeal over the last 12 months with its events being televised on British Eurosport and All Sports Network across Asia, and the duo believe that the line up for their Edge Of Greatness event which takes place at the Effingham Park Hotel near Gatwick Airport will close the year out in style, and give fight fans something special to remember.
Minter commented, “The line up for November’s show is with out doubt the best card of boxing we have ever staged, and just looking across the whole card of boxing there is not one fight I’m not looking forward to seeing.
“The standard in league just keeps getting better and better and I really believe that this event is going to provided the type of entertainment and genuine excitement that is rarely seen inside a British Boxing ring”
Headlining the packed fourteen-bout bill will be established league star Gareth Gardner who will make the second defence of his Queensbury British Middleweight title against Northampton’s highly touted challenger Nathan Leeson in a contest that has divided opinion as to who will emerge with the belt. Gardner has built up an unrivalled reputation in the organisation since leaving the unpaid ranks, winning titles in three of the league’s divisions, but he will face his toughest assignment so far in his 2012 campaign when he takes on the slick counterpuncher Leeson, who has promised to relieve Gardner of the mystique surrounding him when he dethrones the undefeated champion.
Also featuring on the packed undercard of action, Ramsgate’s Sam Holloway will make his long awaited return to action after being sidelined with back problems for nearly eight months, to face Luton’s undefeated prospect Mark Byrne. Holloway was last in action back in March when he claimed the promotions English Super Middleweight strap in a thrilling encounter with London’s Rossco Parker, but since that victory Holloway has been unable to build on that performance after suffering an injury nightmare, but with those problems behind him he will be keen to re-establish himself as he looks at taking on the divisions top guns.
With the show featuring fourteen bouts of boxing, Minter’s promotional partner Foley is also confident that the event will set the benchmark for the league’s 2013 season of action, and will once again deliver proper boxing entertainment.
“Just looking at the line up for Novembers event its hard to pick a winner across the whole card, and I think this show will be without doubt the pick of this years action in the league, declared Foley.
“The league’s format of even 50/50 fights across the card has really struck a chord with fans looking for real excitement this year, and the feedback from people tuning in to watch the events on Eurosport has been amazing, so there is no doubt that this will be one to savour”
“The league has come a long way since it first started and it keeps getting better and better, so with the plans we have for 2013 I can only see big things for the fighters and fans to look forward to”
