Unbeaten light middleweight, ‘Lightning Bolt’ Lloyd Ellett 15(3)-0-0 is set to return on October 31st at the Metropole Hotel in Brighton.
Headlining the show, the 27-year-old Brighton prospect is relishing the opportunity to be the main event in his hometown for the third time in a year. Ellett said, “I am very lucky to be headlining a show again in Brighton. The support that I receive from everyone here is unbelievable and the venue is so close it’s just five minutes walk from my house.”
In October last year Ellett first headlined at the Metropole Hotel in Brighton and defeated Faheem Khan, then 5-1-2, by TKO in the fourth round of the ten round contest claiming the vacant International Masters Bronze light middleweight title in the process.
A few months later in March this year and Ellett returned to the same venue to add the British Masters light middleweight title to his collection by defeating Gary Cooper, then 3-12-1, by a narrow points score of 97-95. The unbeaten home fighter gave his fans a scare by touching down in the second round.
For this third hometown event, Ellett wants to thank his loyal fans by putting on a good show against a worthy opponent and moving up to 16 fights undefeated. Ellett remarked, “I don’t know who I am boxing yet but we’re hoping for someone who will represent a step up, someone who will bring out a top performance from me. I’ve been working hard all summer by sparring in Vegas and Barcelona with top fighters so I’m definitely ready to put on a show.”
The fight is part of a combined promotions show with Scott Welch and Micky Helliet featuring local Sussex talent, Marcus Eaton 3(1)-0-1 from Shoreham, the newly-crowned British Masters Bronze middleweight champion Nicky Jenman 9-8(5)-1, brother Lee Jenman 4-0-0, 27-year-old super middleweight James Child 1-14(4)-0, and heavy-handed featherweight Eli Green 5(3)-0-0 from Guildford.
