Two fighters from Brown’s Boxing Gym will be in “white collar boxing” action at Dudley in the West Midlands on Saturday night (February 23).

Grantham boxers Mickey Blackburn and Mick Fleming both train at the Willow Lane gym, off Harlaxton Road, run by Russ Brown and sponsored by Grantham Clothing Company.

Thirty-nine-year-old Mickey’s bout is a British Boxing Union light-middleweight English title fight.

Russ was sure his charge was up to the challenge: “We are confident we are going to win the title.”

Mick, 36, will contest a BBU lightweight Midlands area title eliminator bout.
