Etches and Jenkins both eager to fight at sell out show

Have your say

SHEFFIELD pair Adam Etches and Scott Jenkins have done their bit for Weston Park Hospital Cancer charity by selling out the dinner show they box on this month.

The Hatton pair fight at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Sheffield Park on Thursday 24th November.

Weston Park will benefit from the show, which sold out inside 24 hours when tickets went on sale last week. Light-middleweight Etches wants to display improvements he’s made since joining the Ingle gym.

Etches, 20, who has won his five professional fights said: “I am loving it at the Ingles. I am there every morning and afternoon training, learning and listening. I try to pick up something new every day there and I want to be able to prove that I can box and that I’m not just a puncher.

“I enjoy fighting on dinner shows and it certainly takes the pressure off when the tickets sell so quickly.”

Lightweight Jenkins, 20, will be bidding for his third win since turning professional in the summer when he boxes on the show, and Sheffield Wednesday fans can’t forget him.

His sponsors Sheffield Kitchen Outlet have paid for an 18 foot banner of the young hopeful which stands outside Hillsborough.

He explained: “It looks really good and must have helped shift tickets for the next fight because there wasn’t enough to go around. I just want to get out there and perform because I feel I am getting better all the time. I have travelled around sparring and it has been beneficial to me.”
