Time : 1 PM
Goodwin Boxing would like to invite you to the press conference for the eagerly anticipated 'Back of the Net' showdown. The press conference will take place Monday 7th November, 1 pm at Little Italy in Soho, where we will be joined by former Premier League footballer Leon McKenzie as he heads towards his English super middleweight showdown with Jahmaine Smyle.
McKenzie, with almost 400 professional games under his belt for the likes of Crystal Palace and Norwich City, embarked on a boxing career in 2013 that will see him challenge for his first major title on November 12th at York Hall. Since changing sporting disciplines, Leon has remained undefeated and become a much feared contender in the super middleweight division having stoppage wins in half of his victories as he follows in the footsteps of uncle and world-renowned boxer Duke McKenzie and also Clinton McKenzie, Leon's father & trainer who himself is a former British & European Champion, His dream of top tier success in both sports hinges on the outcome of this fight.
McKenzie will take his place at the top table of the press conference alongside Smyle, who is making the first defence of the title he won in 2015 against Lee Markham. Both have histories for feisty buildups and have already had plenty to say to each other over social media since the fight was announced. The fireworks promise to continue down in Soho through to November 7th.
Also on the 'Back of the Net' show we have Duke Micah and Matthew Chanda battling out for the Commonwealth bantamweight title. Two undefeated fighters putting it all on the line, the much feared Ghanaian Micah brings with him 17 stoppages from 18 fights while Hackney's Chanda takes a big challenge in only his 8th professional bout. November 12th will also see another top support bout as another two undefeated boxers put their records on the line, Freddy Kiwitt from Islington battling Gloucester's Akeem Ennis-Brown to determine the number one contender for the English welterweight title.
With so much talent on display we would welcome you to come and interact with the boxers present.
