What’s better on a Sunday afternoon than a quality show of professional boxing … including a British Title fight!
On April 3rd at the Rotherham Magna Centre; flyweight Tommy Frank will put his Lonsdale Belt on the line in what should be an absolute barnstormer against Yorkshire rival, Craig Derbyshire.
Don’t be fooled by Craig’s 8-28-3 (2) record, the Doncaster man is a real threat. Heading into the biggest fight of his life, ‘Dynamite’ has won three of his last four, picked up the English super flyweight crown, and has taken time off work for a full training camp – dedicating himself to overcoming Frank.
The pair have met previously, in 2018, with ‘Super’ Tommy boxing his way to a 10-round shutout win. Since then the fighter who was born with a hole in his heart has moved to 15-2-0 (3) and – along the way – added numerous belts to his collection including Commonwealth, International, and the British Championship.
Ahead of the Fight Academy show, which will be broadcast LIVE/FREE on Fightzone, both champion and challenger chatted to renowned fight-game journalist Steve Lillis about the big fight, and why they will come out on top… check it out below:
