Frank Warren promotes another prospects card on BT Sport this Friday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, with heavyweight hope, David Adeleye top of the bill in an eight rounder against Dominik Musil.
It’s the second show of its kind, after Louie Lynn’s victory over Amin Jahanzeb in September and re-affirms Warren’s commitment to showcasing his greenest talent.
Adeleye (7-0, KO6) was making serene enough progress, with six straight knockout wins to his name to start his professional career, but back in April he could have well suffered a first setback, and looked fortunate to get his hand raised by a single point over six rounds against the tough Pole, Kamil Sokolowski, also at York Hall.
The contest showed that Adeleye is far from the finished article, but he returned in July to stop Mladen Manev in four rounds at Wembley Arena.
The visitor, Musil has never boxed in the UK, but has lost when he has left his homeland, with two points defeats in Germany, and a second round knockout loss to Demsey McKean in Australia in June 2019.
That made three losses on the spin, but the 30-year-old has rebuilt with three straight wins in the Czech Republic, his last a fourth round retirement win against Tomas Mrazek in February.
Prediction: Adeleye should have way too much for Musil here, and his power should carry him to a win inside the first three rounds.
In six round action, Henry Turner (5-0) can notch his first inside schedule win against Ghana’s Benjamin Lamptey (11-7-1, 9 KOs) in their super lightweight encounter, while at super bantamweight, Brad Strand (5-0, 2 KOs) can also take care of Poland’s Piotr Gudel (10-7-1, 1 KO) early.
Heavyweight George Fox (4-0), and Polish cruiserweight Michal Soczynski (1-0, 1 KO) are also due to see action, as well as Ellis Zorro (9-0, 4 KOs), against opponents to be confirmed.
There are also plenty of four rounders on the bill. At super welterweight, Levi Frankham (2-0) may need the distance to see off Craig Sumner (1-2), while debutant Jake Henty is likely to hear the final bell against the vastly experienced Kevin McCauley (15-215-12).
Essex-based featherweight, Adan Mohamed (3-0, 1 KO) can score an early victory against Jaroslav Hriadel (1-2, 1 KO), and Mohammed Bilal Ali (4-1, 1 KO) can return to winning ways after a shock loss last time out, with a points win against Levi Dunn (0-5).
