Gary Buckland (27-2, 9 KOs) makes the third defence of his British super-featherweight title against former British featherweight champion Stephen ‘Swifty’ Smith (16-1, 9 KOs) at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday night (August 17) in a fight that has all the pre ingredients to make it a classic battle. Behind both of the boxers are two experienced coaches dedicated to training and producing the best they can, both with proven successes and who will again go head to head with their respected charges. Tony Borg, 48, a former ABA champion and handy pro, he is the boss man at the famous St Joseph’s gym in Newport, where he trains an host of quality amateur and professional boxers, headed by Buckland and Lee Selby. He has worked with Buckland since he walked through the gym doors aged 14 and they are now on the brink of moving onto European and world level. There is though a coach who has upset the Buckland apple cart before and plans to do it again. Joe Gallagher, 46, is the coach of Smith, 28, and in 2010 went up against Borg and Buckland with his then British lightweight champion John Murray. That night Murray stopped Buckland in the 11th round in a terrific fight. Buckland though was never a true lightweight and Murray was far too strong on the night and he pummeled a brave Buckland, 27, and stopped him on his feet. Since that night, Buckland moved down to super-featherweight and has since looked a different proposition. On the flip side of that, it was Borg who took Lee Selby to Liverpool in 2011 to rip the British and Commonwealth featherweight titles from Smith, with a brutal 8th round KO. He has plotted the Liverpool man’s down fall before and will be confident he can do it again. Smith moved up in weight after the Selby loss and has looked stronger and fresher with the added pounds.
