As the dust settles after Saturday nightís contest between Scott Lawton and Amir Khan the remainder of Impact Boxingís boxers together with their coaches are busy preparing for a busy month of October..
Both of Impactís other big guns, Gary Reid and Chris Edwards have important fights coming up. On 19th October Gary Reid faces the hitherto unbeaten John Fewkes at Doncaster Dome in what is being billed as an unofficial eliminator for the English lightweight title. Meanwhile Chris Edwards is preparing for an assault on the inaugural British super-flyweight title in November. Chris will appear at Stokeís Kings Hall on 26th October in a warm up bout ahead of his title challenge. Edwards will face Chesterís Gary Shiel.
Impactís young guns will also turn out at the Kings Hall on the 26th as part of Impact Boxingís 8th bill of professional boxing in the city since its formation 2 years ago.
Jimmy Doherty, now undefeated in six professional starts, will head the line-up as he steps up to 8 rounds for the first time. Doherty has declared his intent to challenge for Midlands Area honours within the next twelve months. An opponent has yet to be secured for him.
Highly rated Scott Miller will make his debut on the undercard. With an excellent amateur record of 21 wins from 25 starts and a come forward style, the former Hulton Abbey amateur is hotly tipped as one to watch.
Werrington heavyweight Alex Ibbs will look to extend his winning start in the pro ranks having won both of his two previous bouts.
Imran Khan makes up the quintet of local lads turning out on the night. Having won his debut with a 1st round knockout, Imran found himself on the back foot for the majority of his last bout in May and consequently suffered a 6 round points reversal at the hands of Shaun Doherty. Gaining a reputation for producing fireworks the talented Khan will be motivated to regain his winning ways.
Chester welterweight Chris Goodwin completes the six-fight card. Goodwin has won on both of his previous visits to the Potteries and as a skilled technician the young prospect is becoming a firm favourite with the Stoke crowd.
