Professional Boxing returns to the Banks’s Stadium in February as Errol Johnson’s Black Country Boxing host a four-fight Boxing Dinner Show in the Stadium Suite on Friday, 17th February.
‘Battleground’ features a quartet of undefeated boxers.
Hot Halesowen prospect, Lennox Clarke, is in action as he looks to secure a title shot in 2017. The 25 year-old is unbeaten in 14 professional contests and has set his sights on a showdown with English Super Middleweight Champion, Jahmaine Smyle. Clarke was ringside in November when Smyle retained his belt with a split decision victory over Leon McKenzie.
After being avoided at Midlands level, ‘Dangerous’ is ready to prove himself at national level and will enjoy an eight round warm-up to blow off the Christmas cobwebs.
Talented Lichfield flyweight, Brad Foster, is also in action. ‘The Blade’ has recorded five straight professional victories since making the switch from kick boxing just 12 months ago. The 19 year-old recently signed a three-year promotional contract with Frank Warren and, after securing nine world titles in kickboxing, is looking to reach world level as a boxer. Foster will enjoy a six round tune-up as Warren plots the youngster’s next move.
Former amateur star, Connor Parker, will be looking to build on his recent impressive professional debut when he fights in the paid ranks for just the second time. The Swadlincote super lightweight debuted in Tewkesbury in December and will be looking to make waves in the professional ranks in 2017.
West Bromwich light heavyweight prospect, Joshua Stokes, completes the card. Josh, brother of undefeated middleweight prospect Tom, will make his professional debut after a solid amateur career with Wodensborough ABC.
Standard tickets for ‘Battleground’, priced at £35, are available by calling the boxers. £60 VIP tickets for tables of ten, with two-course meal, are available by calling Walsall FC Box Office on 01922 651 414/416.

Big up the 90s
BIG UP THE 90’s has been in existence as a working band since 1995!!
Whilst their 10th anniversary year was fast approaching the lads decided it was time to spread thier wings with a new challenge, so began to think of a project that would compliment and continue the success that kick up the 80’s had enjoyed. The natural conclusion for this project to celebrate their 10th year, was to look 10 years on from the 80’s to the 1990’s!
Living their wasted youth through the 90’s they had all experienced the decade first hand, and quickly put together a list of songs to include all of the stars of the era, from boy bands to brit pop via girl power, creating a set list to keep people dancing and singing all night.
With their debut live appearance at The Robin 2 in Bilston on New Year’s Eve 2008, the band has gone from strength to strength. In November 2010 Ant Green joined the band on guitar, having previously played in various local bands including Tranzam.
Proving a huge success, it looks like Big Up The 90s will be “Living La Vida Loca” for many years to come!!
The rest, as they say, is HISTORY!
