a moment in time
Robinson vs Jenman, Genting Arena, Birmingham. 24 March 2018
Andrew Robinson returns to Walsall Town Hall for just the third time in his 26 fight pro career this weekend as Errol Johnson’s BCB Promotions presents their opening edition of 2019 ‘No Love Lost.’
We often hear that the common advice given to any boxer is to not look beyond their next opponent. But how can the former International Boxing Organisation Continental Middleweight Champion not be considering the exciting prospects of taking on Poland’s seemingly invincible Damian Jonak in a contest already scheduled to take place in Poland on 6 April this year?
Jonak has a 50% knockout ratio and is unbeaten in 42 contests. It’s a big fight for Robinson. Too big to ignore.
Nonetheless it is the next opponent that matters right now for ‘D’Animal’ and we can expect that he’ll be aiming to get straight back to winning ways this Saturday, especially following the disappointment of the defeat in his last fight to Mark Heffron when they fought for the World Boxing Council International Middleweight Title on 9th June last year.
Robinson’s record now stands at 21-4-1 and it’s clear that he’s looking to build on it with a few more good wins whilst Father Time is on his side. At 34 years now the Redditch boxer is still in the mix, chasing big fights and elite level titles and he’s already shown that he’s very, very good at what he does.
Something tells us that Robinson will definitely be aiming to send a message out about that to anyone who’s looking or listening, come Saturday night.
Also on the fight card Danny Ball, from Kingswinford returns in search of his eighth win in as many professional contests whilst Burton’s Leon Gower makes a welcome return following his defeat to Brad Foster in what was truly a Stadium Suite sizzler. We also see Levi Ferguson back for his fourth fight and Liam Davies, 22 and from Telford in Shropshire making his second appearance.
Tickets, priced at £35 standard or £65 VIP ringside with a buffet and waitress service, are on sale from the Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. It will be £40 for entry on the door.
