Fightzone viewers will get to follow the next step of Nathan Mizon’s boxing journey on March 4, with the 21-year-old getting a prime slot on a Fight Academy card from the Tower Bridge Hotel in London.
Nathan certainly lived up to his ‘Mr Excitement’ moniker last time out when he demolished Czech opponent, Jan Prokes, in a round on the undercard of Hannah Rankin’s IBO and WBA World Title winning performance against Maria Lindberg in November last year, also at the Tower Bridge Hotel.
Now 3-0 (1) the fighter from Tadworth, Surrey, will look to make a similar impression on viewers and fans when he steps into the ring for the fourth time as a pro on a card that will also feature big-punching cruiserweight Iain Martell; Bromley’s Harry Mullins and Johanna Wonyou; debutants Dee Allen and Louise Orton, and France’s Ismael Francois.
