Jamie Robinson hopes to live up to his ‘Ginger Rocket’ nickname in Sheffield tomorrow.
The lightweight was given the moniker by fellow unbeaten boxer Scott Jenkins. And, while 22-year-old Robinson is looking for his first professional KO, he in determined to put on a show at iceSheffield.
Robinson, who moved with his family to Bolsover from Harlow, Essex, fights Scottish journeyman Michael Stupart on a bill headlined by the Liam Cameron v Rod Smith middleweight title fight.
He hopes a victory will be a step on the pathway towards an Area or Masters title next year.
Robinson, who supports himself by working part-time behind the bar at the Ace of Clubs pub in Bolsover says he has an exciting style.
“I can be explosive and like to go for the body shots” says the former England amateur star and Great Britain title holder at 48 kilos.
“I like to have a tear-up and have been doing well in sparring with the likes of Curtis Woodhouse and Rendall Munroe.
Robinson has also sparred with Sheffield golden boy Kid Galahad.
“He is very awkward, strong - a very good boxer” he said. “But I have been comfortable with all of them - I am not bothered about being hit.”
The Dave Coldwell show will be only the second outing of the year for Sheffield heavyweight David Howe, who takes on Lithuanian rookie Imantas Davidaitis.
