Brad looks to build upon golden age for UK boxing
PACKING A PUNCH: Brad Pauls in the process of taking down Georgi Valevski at Bethnall Green´s York Hall

NEWQUAY boxer Brad Pauls is using the success of British fighters such as Anthony Joshua to inspire him ahead of his eagerly-anticipated seventh bout this weekend.  

Brad, unbeaten in six professional fights with a record of four knockouts, joined millions around the world in watching Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko to retain his IBF heavyweight title and pick up the WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight belts on Saturday evening - the UK now boasting more world champions than any other country.

The ‘Newquay Bomber’ comes up against Anthony Fox at Plymouth’s Guildhall this Saturday looking to maintain his stunning record and further grow his explosive reputation.

As boxing sweeps the nation, a final few tickets are still available to watch the the 24-year-old middleweight try to make it seven from seven in what will be his closest fight to home since turning professional.

He said: “Last Saturday was amazing, I was buzzing! Boxing is in the best place it's been in years and what a time to be involved. Anthony Joshua is a tough act to follow but I'll do my best this Saturday!

“Things have gone really well for me since turning pro, I know how good I am and what I can achieve. I wasn't sure about the support I would get but since turning pro it's been phenomenal. I really feel like I have got all of Cornwall behind me - it's amazing.”

German-born Fox, 22, has won only one of his eight fights in the professional ring, losing five. However, Pauls, now based in Essex, is far from underestimating his opposition.

“My fight on Saturday is with a tough Englishman who is no push over. I will have to be on my A game. With him coming in at 6ft I will have to apply my game plan accordingly.

“There is no doubt in my mind I will get the win. I have worked hard in training, so I'm very confident. I’m really feeling the support for this fight, tickets sales have gone great and I want that win for those who support. Looking like 150 or more will be there!”   

The last few remaining tickets are available by calling Ash, who will deliver them within the Newquay area, on 07596 583025. Alternatively, you can message Brad Pauls - Professional Boxer on Facebook.
