Heavyweight Spencer To Excite On Doncaster World Title Show
Although two little men, Jamie McDonnell and Julio Ceja, will be the main attraction at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium on May 11 when they contest the IBF world bantamweight title, the 9000 strong crowd will also be treated to some exciting heavyweight action.
Undefeated local fighter, Carl Spencer, turned over in September last year and has made an explosive start to his pro career. The 27-year-old has had two fights to date, with both of his wins coming by KO, and is now relishing the chance to showcase his talent on such a huge stage.
“It will be wicked,” said Carl. “I’ve never boxed in front of such a big crowd and it’ll be electric to come out and have the whole crowd cheering for me. Hopefully I’ll get the win on the night too. I’ll be really nervous but I’ll use that to my advantage and it’ll make me sharper.”
Spencer will get a decent test at the Keepmoat. The big man will face Hungarian, Peter Erdos, who enters the bout with just three losses on his 11-fight ledger. Sure of victory, the Yorkshireman is looking to just relax in the ring and let his fists do the talking.
“He’s a good boxer; a tough, big lad. I expect him to go the distance, like I do with everybody, and it all just depends on whether I catch him. I never look for KOs because if you go looking for it you never get it. So I’ll just look to go the four rounds and if I take him out then I take him out. I know I can box, and fight if I have to, so I’m very confident of getting the win.”
The UK heavyweight scene is in a healthy state. Tyson Fury, David Price, and David Haye are all jostling to get in the mix for world honours, while a whole host of other talented domestic heavies form a chasing pack. Although Carl has just started on his professional boxing journey, the ambitious former England international is looking to progress steadily and work his way to the very top.
“I’m a bit of everything rolled into one,” stated Carl, who also works as a plasterer. “I can box, counter-punch, and have a scrap if I need to. I’m orthodox but can box southpaw; so I can do everything really. I’ll box whoever they put in front of me. I’ll box anybody, any time, whoever Dennis [Hobson] wants to put me in with.
“It would be nice to be in UK top 10 or 15 by the end of this year but I’m taking it one step at a time. I’ve seen some of the people who’ve fought for world titles and I’m a lot better than some of them. So hopefully, [by the end of my career] I’d like to think I’ll fight for a world title but at the moment it’s just one step at a time.”
Dennis Hobson Promotions presents ‘Making History’ featuring Jamie McDonnell versus Julio Ceja for the vacant IBF world bantamweight title at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium on May 11.
The undercard for the show will include Stuart Hall and Sergio Perales contesting the IBF inter-continental bantamweight title; Dronfield’s Lewis Taylor defending his International Masters (Bronze) middleweight title against Jason Ball; Doncaster’s Jason Cunningham fighting for the English flyweight title; Doncaster heavyweights Dave ‘The White Rhino’ Allen and Carl Spencer; and Sheffield’s Jamie Sampson.
