Bradley Skeete leads out an interesting list of prospects at Brentwood

Bradley 'Super' Skeete is ready to headline an exciting bill at the Brentwood Centre on Friday as he prepares to keep his title.

First up on the thrilling bill at the Brentwood Centre, Romford, Bradley ‘Super’ Skeete (24-1, 11 KOs) plans a defence of his British welterweight title against Edinburgh’s John Thain (16-2, 1 KO).

After making his debut in October 2010 against Billy Smith, he has only lost one bout. With the British, Commonwealth and WBO European and Intercontinental welterweight titles under his belt, the 29-year-old is aiming for another win.

Lee ‘Banjo’ Markham (16-3-1, 7 KOs) will be co-featuring as fans will see him defending his English middleweight title against Andrew ‘D’Animal’ Robinson (18-2, 6 knockouts), who replaces the injured Joe Mullender.

Markham had his first shot in the pro ranks in 2011 against Matt Scriven and is hoping he can take his home town by storm against a tough Birmingham opponent.

The vacant Southern Area super featherweight title will see Ben ‘Boy Jones Junior’ Jones (10-0-1, 7 KOs) take on Martin Hillman (8-2, 2 KOs).

Turning professional at the tender age of 18, Boy Jones Jnr is still unbeaten since his first bout in 2015 which saw him face Joe Beeden.

Chris Eubank Senior took on Les Wisniewski at the Brentwood Centre in 1989, and on Friday, Croydon’s super lightweight Nathanael ‘Banks’ Wilson (3-0, 1 KO) will appear on the bill, 27 years after his father.

Eubank Snr fully supports his other son Chris Eubank Junior (23-1, 18 KOs) and is ringside at all of his bouts. While Wilson is following in their fathers' footsteps with the same profession, he is not guided by him in any way and wishes to make his own name.

Hornchurch’s Sanjeev Singh Sahota (4-0, 1 KO) hopes to maintain his 100% record for his fifth and final bout this year.

Following his debut in April, the super lightweight has gone through plenty of training, in Murcia, Spain and across England.

He said: “Our trainers, Dom and Lennie, are the real men behind us who push us to our limits.”

Super lightweight Charlie Driscoll (2-0, 0 KOs), super middleweight Billy ‘The Bomb’ Long (4-0, 1 KO) and light heavyweight Anthony Yarde (8-0, 7 KOs) will be taking to the ring hoping to remain unbeaten.

You can watch all the action live from the Brentwood Centre on BoxNation. Friday 25th November, coverage starts at 6 pm.
