With less than four weeks to go until “Champions at the Europa” on Saturday 17th October 22 year old Belfast professional boxer James Tennyson knows he is in touching distance of completing at “Hat Trick” of major titles.
“The Assassin” as he is better known in local boxing circles belies his young age (22) already bagging two national titles (Irish Super Featherweight & British Boxing Board of Control Celtic Featherweight Title) has already won a British Featherweight Title Eliminator.
James who is ranked number 3 in UK and 7 in Europe and 92 in the World awaits the winner of the British Featherweight Title fight taking place at the Wembley Arena, London on Saturday night.
The heavy handed Tennyson sports a winning record of 13-1 (10KO) faces the very tough former European Title Challenger, Georgian, George Gachechiladze and knows there is no room for error in a good match up with the prestigious British Title not too far in the distance.
“James Tennyson has achieved things at 22 that most professionals only dream of, he has great amateur pedigree that has stood him in good stead and is now ready to push on” says manager Mark Dunlop.
The full time pro has totally dedicated himself while struggling to get to the top so was delighted when local business men Phil Davidson & Tom Cardwell of Negative Equity NI . Com stepped in to help with his medical expenses last week.
The main event at the Europa will see Paul Hyland Jnr v Bence Molnar for the 8rnd PBA “Challenge Belt” with the remainder of the top class fight card which includes Irish Light Middleweight Champion, Dee Walsh, Celtic Nations Champ, James Fryers & 2014 Commonwealth Games Silver Medallist Joe Fitzpatrick.
