European Silver Medalist Iain Weaver Ready For Pro Debut On 27th April
Following a frustrating few months, outstanding Team GB star Iain Weaver finally makes his most welcome professional debut at York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday 27th April, on the Dave Murphy promoted Thunder & Lightning event, headlined by Dean Irish Lightning Byrne versus Jay IOW Assassin Morris International Masters Welterweight title clash.
Weaver, who was an integral part of the Team GB podium squad throughout Rob McCrackens preparations for the London 2012 Olympics, has enjoyed a highly successful amateur career, culminating in both Commonwealth Boxing Championships Gold and European Silver Medals.
Even though he had been enjoying excellent form, in the pre Olympics build up, Weaver unfortunately wasnt selected for a London 2012 slot, losing out to eventual Gold medalist Luke Campbell.
Following a full on sparring session at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, Weaver spoke briefly about his upcoming professional debut.
Yeah, my pro debut is on the 27th April at York Hall. Its gonna be great night for me and my fans.
Its been a longtime coming, Ive been waiting nearly a year. Im just gonna get out there and enjoy every minute.
On the 27th Im gonna make a real statement. Its been a long time coming, but Ive been training hard and I cant wait, Im so ready to fight.
I had a very good amateur career, I was in the Team GB squad four and half years, won the European Silver medal and the Commonwealth Boxing Championships Gold medal, so had a good amateur career.
I thought I should have gone to the Olympic Games, I didnt, which is a bit of a sore subject, but cant moan had a good amateur career and fought at the European Championships and Commonwealth Games.
I fought all over the World, been to more countries than I can remember, which is something Im hoping to do as a pro.
I didnt get an Olympic medal as an amateur, so now I want to put that behind me and see what I can achieve as a pro, as I really want to win a World title, I want to win as many titles as I can.
Finally Id like to say to all my fans, as well as all boxing fans, its gonna be a great night of boxing. Ive waited a long time for this and Im gonna put on a great show for the fans.
Youre not gonna want to miss this, so get down to York Hall on the 27th.
Iain Weaver will be making his debut, against a yet to be named opponent, on the undercard of the Dean Irish Lightning Byrne versus Jay IOW Assassin Morris International Masters Welterweight Championship clash that headlines Dave Murphys Thunderdrome Promotions Thunder & Lightning event at York Hall, Bethnal Green in London on the 27th April 2013.
