Bantamweight Marc Leach will face Louis Norman in an English title final eliminator on Steve Wood’s VIP Card at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse on Sept 15.
Leach 10-1-1, 2 KO’s last time out travelled to Zimbabwe to defeat Tapiwa Tembo on points in his first overseas outing.
“A draw is obviously better than a loss, but I don’t reckon I lost the fight anyway,” 24yo Leach told DAILY SPORT Boxing. “I actually thought I was coasting the rounds easily and wanted to save some in the tank for my next fight, which would hopefully be a big one. But if I’d known it was that close I’d have stepped it up. As I say though, a draw is better, but I definitely know I didn’t lose it.”
The show is also streamed LIVE on VIPBoxing.tv and VIP TV also caught up with promoter Steve Wood ahead of Saturday’s bill.
