Heavy-handed featherweight prospect Nick Ball (16-0) returns to the ring this Friday against Mexican Jesus Ramirez Rubio (20-1-3) at the spiritual home of UK boxing, York Hall.
Ball, who has nine stoppage victories out of his 16 victories, announced himself on the scene in April, when he displayed his heavy hands on the big stage, stopping Isaac Lowe to pick up the WBC Silver featherweight title on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium.
Ball was a name hot on the lips of boxing fans, and would impress again in July, as he would become the first man to stop Nathanael Kakololo, stopping his man in round 12.
Ball was initially set to face Rafael Pedroza (13-0), however, Pedroza withdrew from the bout, leading to Rubio being drafted in as the replacement.
Rubio carries power himself as 14 of his 20 wins have come inside the distance. The Mexican will look to halt the momentum of Ball, as he comes into this bout off the back of three stoppage victories. Last time out, Rubio stopped Anthony Jimenez Salas in four rounds in Hermosillo.
The undercard sees Scotland’s Willy Hutchinson (14-1) continue his rise back up the ranks, as he looks to pick up the vacant WBO Inter-Continental when he squares off with Luca Spadaccini (8-4-3). Rising heavyweight prospect David Adeleye (9-0) returns for the first time since his Wembley win last time out, as he faces Elvis Garcia.
Super bantamweight Umar Khan (4-0) looks to remain undefeated as he locks horns with Alexander Taylor (20-38-2) over six rounds. Super welterweight prospect Carl Fail (6-0) fights for the first time under the Queensberry Promotions banner, as he will look to make a statement against Dwain Grant (3-13-1).
Welterweight Sean Noakes (2-0) looks to continue the blistering start to his pro career as he fights Petar Aleksandrov (4-23) over four rounds. Super featherweight prospect Charles Frankham (6-0) looks to continue his momentum as he returns for back-to-back fights at York Hall. Finally, Aloys Youmbi (1-1) looks to build on his first victory last time out as he faces Pawel Strykowski (3-20-1) over four rounds.
Queensberry Promotions put on a stellar night of boxing, showcasing some of Britain’s fast rising prospects from one of the most popular venues in the UK. The fights will be broadcast live this Friday on BT Sport 2 from 7 pm.
