Jack Smith is hoping to mark his 20th birthday with a win in the ring.

The Chatteris bantamweight prospect will gun for a second professional success at the famous York Hall in Bethnal Green on the night of his birthday – December 2.

Smith, who fights out of St Ives Boxing Academy, experienced defeat in his first bout in the paid ranks earlier this year but bounced back in style with a classy points win over the experienced Gary Reeve in July.

The 19-year-old has had a loyal band of followers travel with him to his fights in London and Norwich, and he hopes for another bumper crowd backing him in three months’ time.

He said: “For anyone wanting to come, keep that date free. And as it’s my birthday, don’t hesitate to bring some cake for after my fight!”

For more information or tickets, call Jack on 07411 237716.
