Sidcup middleweight Jamie Hughes says he’s looking forward to showing fight fans what he can do this month.
Hughes gets in the ring at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, April 28 looking to push his career on after a frustrating start.
He made a winning debut last February – but was then out for a year as he picked up injuries and shows were cancelled.
Hughes made it two wins out of two with a points win over Callum Ide – but the 29 year old says he was far from his best.
“I had tonsillitis in the build up to the fight,” he explained, “and for two weeks before I boxed, I didn’t do anything in the gym.
“The fight ended up being at 12 st 7lbs when I should be fighting at middleweight and I wasn’t at my best in there.
“I was happy I got the win, but I wasn’t that happy with the performance.
“This time, there haven’t been any problems.
“I haven’t shown what I can do yet and this time I want to.”
Hughes showed promise as an amateur with Bexley ABC – and then went eight years without throwing a punch before he turned professional.
“There was no transition from the amateurs to the pros,” he said. “I felt like I was starting all over again.
“I was a good amateur, but I forgot a lot in those eight years away from boxing.
“I feel I’ve found my form again now. I feel comfortable in there again.
“Now I just want to stay injury free and keep fighting. If I can do that, I will be happy.”
Tickets for the show at the York Hall are available from 07525 743261.
