Marc Leach is on the run of his career at the minute. Leach was defeated on his debut in 2014, but regrouped and is now ndefeated in eight years. Leach was drafted in to fight Team GB amateur Qais Ashfaq. Leach was written off in the lead up, but produced a seismic upset, as he dropped Ashfaq twice on his way to a unanimous decision victory.

Following the Ashfaq victory, Leach returned to get a unanimous decision victory over Thomas Essomba, before going on to knock Stefan Nicolae out in a round six months later. Leach then got the opportunity to face unbeaten prospect Chris Bourke for the vacant British title. Leach once again upset the odds, and handed Bourke his first defeat, crowning Leach as British champion.
Liam Davies turned professional in 2018, but his first title didn't come until 2020. In Davies' eighth fight, he defeated Sean Cairns, as Cairns was pulled out by his corner, to win the vacant English bantamweight title. Davies would build on this as he knocked Stefan Slachev out in two rounds, and then went on to knock Raymond Commey out in two rounds just two months later.

Davies would move to super bantamweight next and win the WBC international Silver title as he would get a shutout points victory over Dixon Flores. The Flores victory set Davies up for his shot at the British title with his record at 11-0, but will face a tough fight in keeping his '0' against Leach this Saturday.
