Boxing: Saunders opponent named
BRADLEY Saunders will fight the British Masters Bronze welterweight champion Gareth Heard in London next week.
Unbeaten Saunders from County Durham faces the 30-year-old welterweight from Wiltshire on October 7 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in Park Lane for a special charity dinner event hosted by promoter Frank Warren.
Saunders, 27, said: “Can’t wait to box Gareth, he will come to win which is good for me. I can promise you that he likes a fight."
This will be the second eight round contest and first title challenge for the unbeaten North-East prospect, who has only been forced to go the distance twice in his first six fights.
Headlining fight will see Stephen Ormond make the first defence of his WBO European lightweight title against Adam Dingsdale.
Also on the card is Teeside cruiserweight Simon Vallily, the 2010 Commonwealth Games Champion and 2009 ABA Champion hasn't lost a round in his two fights so far and looks to display his class again when he takes on Rolandas Cesna over four rounds.
This year's boxing dinner is in memory of Dean Powell who was a member of the Nordoff Robbins Boxing Event Committee and instrumental in putting the night together.
