      Warrior Promotions Deliver Another Top Card     

(October 21st, Swansea)

For anyone thinking that the Anthony Joshua fight is the only thing happening on the South Wales fight scene this month, think again!

Mo Prior, in his vision to bring local boxing back into conversations from the playgrounds to the pubs, has once again lined up a card of top Welsh fighters ready to do battle on October 21st in Swansea.

Headlining will be the impressive, solid, but self-titled “forgotten man of British boxing”, Chris Jenkins.

Ahead of the Swansea bill, Fight Scene  caught up with RoknRola Jenkins (off the back of yet another win!), plus some of the less-known names who are set to make big waves in Welsh boxing…

 

Columnist Enzo Calzaghe

‘Kody Davies is one to watch’

 

INTERVIEW WITH KODY DAVIES

‘I say a little prayer before I go into my fights and that’s enough for me’

 

Jon Sutton chats to Kody Davies ahead of his Professional Debut on 21st October 2017

JS

Your father is friends with Joe Calzaghe and you’ve had one-on-one training with him. How did that go?

KD

We didn’t really do sparring, but there’s been lots of padwork, and obviously with us being southpaws he has passed on some really good techniques to use in my game, also speed work and picking up style which all adds up to the full package.

 

 

JS

So this is your professional debut and you’re up against the experienced Chris Nixon.  Has your amateur career, time with Team GB and the time with Joe, helped you prepare for this step up?

KD

Definitely! First thing I want to touch on is the opponent change from Chris Nixon, who is no longer fighting, to an experienced foreign guy. With Team GB I’ve been all over the World and I’ve Boxed Olympic Champions, World Champions – I’m ready for anything.  The time with Joe has helped and with Gavin training me too, the expertise from both of them is perfect for me.

 

Kody Davies pitured with Gavin Rees

JS

 It was Gavin Rees who suggested you move down to light heavyweight, rather than continue at cruiserweight – is that correct and are you happy with that? Do you have any intention to move up as your career progresses?

KD

That is correct. Gavin was adamant that I move to light heavyweight – I wasn’t too keen at first, I love my food and this means diet and lots of hard training but I’m feeling great, so obviously it has been a great move and at the moment I’m sticking to one plan.

 

 

JS

Who are your favourite boxers?  One from today and one from the history books.

KD

That’s a tough one. From the history books, it would be Mike Tyson. From today, this would have to be a cross between Gavin and Joe – two locals, two World Champions!

 

 

JS

Your inspirations outside boxing?

KD:

God

 

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky – I thought it was real.

KD

My first memory was my Dad who grew up with Joe.  Every time he fought it was a big, big event in our house – Dad was there watching ringside, and the rest of us watching on the telly.

 

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky, in the film he gets an unexpected shot at the World Title.  If you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who would it be against?

KD

It would be against whoever holds the World Title. It is not who you fight, it’s what you fight for.

 

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout, or a specific song that helps you through the roadwork?

KD

Not really – I say a little prayer before I go into my fights and that’s enough for me.

 

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

KD

Obviously everything – it’s my first pro fight, so yes it means everything.

 

Words from Columnist Enzo Calzaghe:

Kody Davies –  I have known Kody for a long time and trained him a couple of times. I hope he does well in his first fight as a professional.

Be careful, don’t showboat and use your ability.

Most of all don’t panic. Let everything outside the ring go immediately,  focus on the fight and just win.

 

 

JS

Is there anything you’d like to say to the fans?

KD

Thank you for all the support, I’ve sold lots of tickets and had lots of interest in my career, and I’m very grateful for that. Just a big thank you to everyone, and a special thank you as well to my sponsors – Top Spec Motors, Refuel Nutrition, Batch Plant, and Ringside.

JAKE ANTHONY

(Middleweight: 0-0-0)

“My earliest memory of boxing was watching Joe Calzaghe, he’s the reason I wanted to start boxing!”

 

 

Jon Sutton talks to the Ammanford debutant ahead of his first pro-fight…

JS

Jake, you’re at the very start of your career, a massive future ahead. Excited?

JA

Yes, very excited, even though I am young in this sport it feels like turning professional has been a long-time coming.

 

JS

You seem to have a lot local companies happy to sponsor and support you. Does that hometown help give you a big boost?

JA

My 2 sponsors are house to home renovations and Armstrong health specialist; both are a massive help to me and my career and hopefully as I start to have more fights more people will get on board.

 

JS

You’ve been working hard to sell yourself as a fighter. It seems important for all boxers, from first time fighters to world class champs, in today’s world of social media. Do you still have plenty of time for training? How’s that been going?

JA

Yes, it’s very hard to fit in training around full time work, selling tickets and getting the medical done but I’ve trained very hard for this fight and will be in the best shape possible on October 21st.

 

JS

Who’s your inspiration, outside of boxing?

JA

Outside of boxing I just enjoy being with my family and friends they keep me going when the training is hard and in the fights when it gets tough.

 

JS

And inside boxing? You can have one current fighter and one from the history books… we’re good like that at Fight Scene.

JA

Tough question- current boxer I would say is Canelo Alvarez, past has got to be Ricky Hatton for his exciting style.

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky. I thought it was real.

JA

My earliest memory of boxing was watching Joe Calzaghe, he’s the reason I wanted to start boxing!

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky – in the film, he gets an unexpected shot at the World Title – if you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who it would be against? 

JA

Dream fight for me would be to box for the British title, that’s somewhere I feel I should be fighting at in the next few years and I could retire happy knowing I won the Lonsdale belt.

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road work?

JA

To be honest I like to switch off before a fight if I can and not think about it, I find it far more relaxing than trying to go over a fight a hundred times in your head.

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

JA

A win on the 21st means everything to be me, this what you spend years in the amateurs learning and developing just for this moment.

 

JS

Anything you’d like to say to the fans?

JA

Yes, just a massive thank you to everyone who has bought tickets and I hope everyone enjoys the show on the 21st.

MAREDUDD THOMAS

(Welterweight)

“I’ve always been told I have power in my punches and I hope to show that wearing these smaller gloves as a pro”

Maredudd Thomas (left) pictured with Chris Jenkins

 

Jon Sutton chats with Maredudd Thomas ahead of his Professional Debut on 21st October.

JS

Let’s imagine its 2021 and you’re up for a world title in Las Vegas, how do you think the American commentators will pronounce your name?

MT

Not very good! Not many welsh people can pronounce it!

 

JS

Well if your latest twitter video can be used as a gauge, big things are certainly possible. That is quite literally the perfect counter left hook. Is that a signature move that pro fans can look forward to seeing repeated?

MT

Yes! I’ll aim to repeat it. I’ve always been told I have power in my punches and I hope to show that wearing these smaller gloves as a pro.

 

JS

So this is your pro debut, has your amateur pedigree helped you prepare for the set up?

MT

Definitely, I’ve come from a great amateur gym who got me to international level. I’ve gained great experience boxing some great opponents in Wales

 

JS

Who are your favourite boxers? One from today and one from the history book

MT

Canelo Alvarez, and has to be Joe Calzaghe as he was the first fighter I followed when I was younger

 

JS

And who is your inspiration outside boxing?

MT

My friends and family I have around me with their constant support

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky I thought it was real

MT

When I was about 8 or 9 my Dad’s friend made me a punch bag, we had it put up in the garage and I used to always use it

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky, in the film, he gets unexpected shot at the World Title. If you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow who would it be against?

MT

Again Canelo, one of the toughest fighters out there, but to share a ring with him would be great

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road workl?

MT

Dreams and Nightmares – Meek Mill always helps me get through a tough run

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

MT

It means everything. It’s the start of my career

 

JS

Finally is there anything you’d like to say to the fans?

MT

Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket. Big thanks to my sponsor Leek & Price Carpentry who have helped massively and to Demonshield who have supplied me with some great training gear.

(Super Lightweight: 2-0-0)

“My inspiration has to be my friends & family… Family is everything.”

Jon Sutton talks to the St Joe’s pro ahead of his third bout..

JS

A documentary team recently shot a film about your rise in the boxing world and it shows a lot of support from Dad. Is that family support a big help in the career?

LC

Having a close knitted family makes it a lot easier for me as a boxer – it takes a lot of pressure off the fight. Family is everything.

 

JS

Who’s your inspiration, outside of boxing?

LC

My inspiration has to be my friends and family. I’m surrounded every day with good people that push me and help me achieve my goal.

 

JS

And inside boxing? You can have one current fighter and one from the history books… we’re good like that at Fight Scene.

LC

There’s so many exceptionally good boxers currently it would be to hard  to choose just one. 

Roberto Duran has to be one of the toughest fighters. His fights against Sugar Ray Leonard are a great watch.

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing?

LC

My earliest memory of boxing has to be me and my younger brother putting on a pair of my father’s gloves and having a couple of rounds sparring. We were only about 6 and 4. He was a bit tougher than me back then. 

 

JS

If you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who it would be against?  

LC

A dream fight for me would be a big money fight and I think a good one would be against Conor McGregor, I would have a good chance of winning and I would be millionaire overnight. Happy days!

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road work?

LC

I don’t really have a film that pumps me up before a bout I suppose as a kids I used to watch Rocky quite a bit and always felt like going for a run after watching it.

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

LC

A win on the 21st is massive to me it’s the next step in my pro career. I’m feeling fast and confident and I’m ready to go to war. 

 

JS

Anything you’d like to say to the fans?

LC

I’ve been overwhelmed with all the support from the fans. I’d like to thank you all. I’m on a journey to titles so enjoy the ride. And a massive thanks to all my sponsors… Extreme Fitters, The New Best Kebabs, Vale Scaffolding and Neil OC performance.

Lance Cooksey has had a smooth transition from the Amateur to Professional Scene. His aggressive style and fast hands have assured his large following of exciting fights and his fan base is growing. Lance is learning every week in the gym amongst champions and various weights.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MITCHELL BUCKLAND

(Super Middleweight: 11(2)-0-0)

 

“I’m the kind of fighter who’ll jump at the chance to fight any one for any title…”

 

Photo: Sarah Hopkins Photography

 

Jon Sutton talks to the Cardiff Southpaw about his fighting family’s battles, both inside and outside of the ring…

 JS

There’s been some tough times for you lately, but you’re a family of true fighters and it’s great to see you back. How’s training going?

MB

Training going well thanks, but I’m working and training at the moment, so that makes it a bit difficult… but still all good!

 

JS

Since joining up with Mo Prior, you’ve said that you owe him a debt of gratitude for the boost in your career. You recently missed out on the chance to deliver that gratitude in the form of a British title (when officials determined there was not enough time to monitor weight). How upsetting was that? Were you keen for a title shot – and ready to deliver?

MB

You’ve got to thank Mo for what he does for boxing. We need more people like him in boxing. And yes, I’m the kind of fighter who’ll jump at the chance to fight any one for any title.

 

JS

The likes of Mickey Ward, Roger Mayweather and Andrew Selby all famously had their brothers around during their boxing careers – but you have a brother and a wife from the fight game. Is that a help?

MB

Yes, most definitely, that helps a lot.

 

JS

Who’s your inspiration, outside of boxing?

MB

My kids.

 

JS

And inside boxing? You can have one current fighter and one from the history books… we’re good like that at Fight Scene.

MB

Mike Tyson & Anthony Joshua

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky. I thought it was real.

MB

Mine was the (Jon Voight) film, “The Champ”. I shed a tear!

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky – in the film, he gets an unexpected shot at the World Title – if you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who it would be against? 

MB

It would have to be Floyd Mayweather.

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road work?

MB

No. I’m real old school me – I run with no music or films.

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

MB

A win means the world to me, especially because I’ve been out so long. It would put me back on the map.

        

JS

Anything you’d like to say to the fans?

MB

Yes, thanks for all the support, it means the world to me. I won’t let you down. Much love!

 

Words from Trainer Tony Borg:

Its great to see Mitch Buckland back in the ring. He had his last fight back in May last year, and that was a routine points win on a Barry Mcguigan show.

Mitch has been through a traumatic period with his wife Rachel having had a serious head injury with life saving operations. They have 2 young children and this has had a massive impact, putting his career on hold.

He is back in action!! and up to Super Middleweight from Light Welterweight for his first fight back on Mo Prior’s British Warriors show.

Mitch may drop down a weight or 2 in time. For now he is eager to get back to winning  and chasing titles. 

Mitch is UNBEATEN and the former Celtic and Lightweight and Light Welterweight Champion!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH GERAINT GOODRIDGE

(Middleweight: 2-0-0)

 

“The song ‘Here I Go Again On My Own’ by Whitesnake really gets me going…

No matter who helps you or who’s in your corner in that ring, sometimes in life you are all on your own…”

 

 

 

 

Jon Sutton talks to the Port Talbot puncher about his boxing, his inspirations and the genius prank played on him by his kids…

 

JS

Before we move onto the main questions, there’s an issue we need to address. Fight-Scene understands that you were the victim of a massive injustice outside of the ring, last year … when your two sons tricked you into believing that it was fancy dress day in school. Are you over the embarrassment yet?

GG

My boys get their character from me as I’m always messing about and I thought that trick was up there with the best of them, I turned up at the school and the teacher were like why are they in fancy dress??? The boys dressed as woody and a transformer were just laughing at me… I found it more funny than embarrassing… they are my world and they fuel my fire to succeed in boxing, I want them to be proud of their daddy

 

JS

Thanks for clearing things up! Right now, you’re a double GG. But if you go as “Great Geraint Goodridge” you would be the Welsh Triple-G. Would you fight him for the right to the name?

GG

There are enough GGs and GGGs in boxing, I’ll stick with the Magic Man, it’s a name I think could stick, my mate Owain Davies and a few who drink at my local boozer know what it’s all about. I’ll have to explain when I got a bit more time, hahaha.

 

JS

Who’s your inspiration, outside of boxing?

GG

John Hartson is a very close friend. He often phones me and he is a father figure alongside a best friend. Not only did he represent our country wales 51 times and play for some of the biggest teams in Britain, but he also won a massive battle with cancer that had spread to his brain and has overcome a gambling addiction.

He always points me in the right direction and always phones me with a battle speech before every fight – that gets me in the zone.

He is my inspiration in achieving something in my life as he did in his and I take massive inspiration from the fighting spirit he showed through the battles he has won.

 

JS

And inside boxing? You can have one current fighter and one from the history books… we’re good like that at Fight Scene.

GG

My inspiration inside of boxing has to be my coach, Jamie Arthur, he took a gamble on me as I started late in boxing, but in the 6 months together he has changed the way I think and honestly has put belief in me that we can achieve all we set out to do. He won a Commonwealth Title as an amateur and a pro.

What he coaches me he has practised and achieved himself… we have a great bond and got on amazing from the 1st day I walked in his gym. He is also a best friend as well as a coach manager and promoter, and he inspires me so much to bring a title back to Arthur’s just like he took his title home

     

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky. I thought it was real.

GG

My earliest memory of boxing far back as I remember was my brothers and sister watching a Mike Tyson fight…

I was young they are a fair bit older than me… my brothers Wayne, Glan, Bleddyn and my sister Lisa were all watching the fight. And back then I remember thinking I want to be on that television doing that.

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky – in the film, he gets an unexpected shot at the World Title – if you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who it would be against?  

GG

If you knew me well you would know a shot at any title would mean the world to me… a Welsh, a British, a World, whatever it was I’d be humbled at the opportunity.

Whoever I was up against would be in for a tough night! I train hard and I back myself 100% in all I do. If I was offered a dream fight tomorrow – against anybody – I’d take it.

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road work? 

GG

The song “Here I Go Again On My Own” by Whitesnake really gets me going…. the lyrics, “going down the only road I’ve ever known” sort of sums me up ha-ha…. but all jokes aside no matter who helps you or who’s in your corner in that ring, sometimes in life you are all on your own… so that’s the song that gets me going.

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

GG

A win on the 21st means another step closer to my dream of winning a Welsh Title.

When I signed with Jamie, I set myself a goal of winning that title – anything else after that would be a bonus.

But if I can keep racking up wins I just feel that shot is getting closer each time my hand gets raised.

JS

Anything you’d like to say to the fans?

GG

My fan base seems to be increasing and it really means a lot to me having all their support. It’s great to have people interested in my journey, all the people rooting for me, all the people who speak to me when I’m out and about, it means so much.

Please keep doing that I’m always happy to talk! The sponsors have been great in helping me get tip-top for fights paying for the training expenses.

Thanks to them, and everyone who has ever bought a ticket to watch me. I salute you. Thanks, I’ll never forget it. Everyone who is in attendance on the 21st of October, be loud! And let’s keep moving forward. God bless you all.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KIERAN GETHING

(Super Welterweight: 2(1)-1-1)

 

 

“I didn’t enjoy Rocky movies until I got old enough to realise how life-like the story can be!”

 

   

Jon Sutton chats with the rising pride of Pontypool about his best year to date… and more to come.

JS

Firstly, congratulations. A new baby, a new wife and two pro wins after signing with Jamie Arthur… is 2017 the best year yet for the Gething household?

KG

It’s definitely one of them, 2015 was great as I bought my house, turned 21 and won the senior Welsh title within a month but having Isla and getting married tops it, all I need to do now I win a belt and I’ll be over the moon.

JS

How could 2018 top it?

KG

Another baby with a Welsh and Celtic title, hope to work part time by the end of next year to spend more time with family and training!

 

JS

At 5’10” you’re a fairly big welterweight. Do you like to use that advantage and fight at range? Has your style changed since turning pro?

KG

I’d like to try to get to welterweight but at the moment I’m aiming to campaign at light middle, although if the opportunity was there for me I’d fight welter. I think my style is the same, just more refined, thanks to my maturing and my coaches keeping on to me.

 

JS

You’ve cited Ray Robinson and Canelo as your boxing heroes. Why so? And whose career/style would you most like to emulate?

KG

Simple answer is because any of the footage I’ve seen of Robinson I’ve been in awe. His legend also helps. I love the way Canelo came up through hardship in Mexico, the ID most like to be like robinson, not his style just his sportsmanship and suaveness.

JS

Who’s your inspiration, outside of boxing?

KG

Right now? Isla Rose and Emma Louise Gething

 

JS

What was your earliest memory of boxing? Mine was Rocky. I thought it was real.

KG

Haha I didn’t enjoy Rocky movies until I got old enough to realise how life like the story can be! My earliest memory may well be me and my four year old brother sparring and him hitting me with a low blow, Dad laughing and him celebrating!!

 

JS

Speaking of Rocky, in the film, he gets an unexpected shot at the World Title. If you could be offered a dream fight tomorrow, who it would be against?

KG

I’d love to fight someone like Horn, I know he couldn’t do much else but stand and fight! Or maybe Liam Smith?

 

JS

Do you have a film that pumps you up before a bout? Or a specific song that helps you through the road work?

KG

I like all music and film, but I used to listen to the Beatles on the way to fights because me and my coach like to be relaxed and it chills me out.

 

JS

What does a win mean for you on the 21st?

KG

Winning is the best feeling a fighter can get, but I love getting there, the actual bout is where I enjoy it most. But a win means the board may sanction a title for me as they turned me down against Dixon recently. So that’s why I’m dying for more wins.

 

JS

Anything you’d like to say to the fans?

KG

I’d like to say thanks to everyone that buys tickets, but more so to the people that have been there every time. I’m not just winning for me and mine, it’s for all of you to be proud of too.

 

Words from trainer Lyndon James

‘Kieran’s been sparring at St Josephs with the likes of Jordan Clayton and Jamie Arthurs camp, he looks good and has been boxing well

Training hard as ever Improving all the time, Kieran is using his jab and working off it lovley. His punching angle is good and he has had a couple of comfortable wins.

We are looking to increase on the rounds and hopefully with his continued success that will come.’
