Bull has staged some big fights in the past but says the event on Saturday night will be the strongest yet from top to bottom.

“This show is the biggest I’ve promoted without a doubt,” he said.

“It beats Josh Wale v Gavin McDonnell and it beats Jason Cunningham’s Commonwealth title fight.

“They were main events, this is a stacked show, a full house. It’s stacked with proper fights. You can’t pick winners.

“Robbie Barrett is in a proper 50-50 with Kevin Hooper, Lee Appleyard is fighting a kid who’s beat him before.

“Aston Jolly is going in with a proper fighter.

“It’s stacked. It’s a cracking bill. Hands down, without doubt I would say it’s my best show.”

Topping the bill is Barnsley fighter Josh Wale’s attempt to win his first major domestic title as he contests the vacant English bantamweight title with Ramesh Ahmadi.

Wale has previously fought for English, Commonwealth and WBC International titles but has valiantly come up short each time.

Chief support is another English title fight as Barnsley’s Robbie Barrett defends his crown against Grimsby’s Kevin Hooper.

British super featherweight champion Andy Townend will compete in a six round tune up against Liam Richards.

Jason Cunningham also begins life at featherweight. The Woodlands fighter will take on Jamie Speight, commencing his quest for titles at a new weight.

The 27-year-old has previously competed at super flyweight and super bantamweight, and won English and Commonwealth titles at bantamweight.
