Hot middleweight prospect Tommy Langford kicks off his 2015 campaign in a ten-round contest and aims to end the year with a domestic title.
Langford features as chief support to the big lightweight showdown between Stephen Ormond and Terry Flanagan at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Saturday February 14th, his first ten-rounder.
Under trainer Tom Chaney, the Birmingham ace, who’s originally from Bideford in Cornwall, has amassed an unbeaten record of eleven fights and a win in Wolverhampton will make him eligible to fight for his first pro title.
The 25-year-olds opponent will be confirmed shortly, but he is excited with the year ahead.
“2015 is going to be a big year for me and it starts at Wolverhampton,” Said Langford.
“It’s going to be an exciting year ahead and providing I get through my first ten rounder, which I’m confident I’ll do, then I’m looking at titles so I hope to end the year with either a regional title or the English title,”
“I’m ranked at number 20 in the new British rankings and I can honestly say between me and the number ten I’d be confident of beating any of them right now. Obviously I’ve got to prove myself, but I believe this year, as the opponents step up each time and I get the experience, so will my performances,”
“The middleweights is a cracking division right now packed with big names in the top ten like Billy Joe Saunders, Andy Lee, Martin Murray, John Ryder and Chris Eubank Jnr. I’m a way off mixing with those names right now, but I’d like to think in 2016 I’d face at least one of those.”
