Plymouth lightweight Des 'The Destroyer' Newton to defend his British title

By Contributor in Local People

PLYMOUTH lightweight, Des Newton, again tops BCB Promotions’ latest Plymouth show ’Mayhem’ as he defends his newly acquired British Challenge title.

‘The Destroyer’ defeated Jamie Quinn over eight gruelling rounds last month to claim his first professional belt and defends it against Gloucester’s Andy ‘Hurricane’ Harris at Plymouth Guildhall on Saturday, May 6.

Mayhem is sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Plymouth, which will again host the weigh-in and after show party and features a host of Devon-based boxers on the undercard.

Fellow Plymouth lightweight, Darren Townley, is once again in action as he looks to challenge for area honours in 2017. ‘The Terminator’ returned to winning ways with a convincing victory over Matt Seawright last time out.

Carl Robson trained super middleweight Cristian Hoskin-Gomez will challenge for an international title whilst Launceston duo — welterweight, Wes Smith and bantamweight, Marcus Hodgson — make a welcome Guildhall return alongside Cornwall cruiserweight, Marcus Kelly, who recorded a debut victory at the venue in July 2016.

Debutants Louis Aitken and Jordan Platt complete the card. Former Great Britian kick boxer Aitken will campaign at lightweight whilst former Launceston ABC star Platt turns over at super lightweight.

Plymouth welterweight, Jack ‘The Ripper’ Bellingham, misses out this time due to injury but will be fully recovered for BCB’s July show at the Guildhall.

Tickets for Mayhem are £30 or £50 ringside and are available by calling 07958 398 355. Doors open at 6.30pm with boxing commencing at 7.30pm, at Plymouth Guildhall, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 2AA.

The weigh-in and after show party (over 18s only) take place at Grosvenor Casino Plymouth, Derry’s Cross, Plymouth, PL1 2SW (just a two-minute walk from the Guildhall).
