Walsall Town Hall will see the return of live boxing as it showcases a second event next month.

Following a sell out Traditional Martial Arts event last month, Black Country Boxing’s ‘Showtime’ will take place on May 11 and will include three new signing, two of which are making their professional debuts.

Former world kickboxing champion Amy Timlin is tipped for world title success in the future and hopes to be able to mark her first professional fight against Roz Mari Silyanova with a win.

She said: “I switched over to the Amateur Boxing Association about three years ago, I went to Wayne Elcock’s boxing academy for some sparring with a few of his lads and then decided to get my ABA licence.

“I’ve always been more of a boxer, I used to box my way through kickboxing fights, so boxing suited me perfectly.

“I expect a scrappy fight with my opponent, she loves to hold and grab but me and my team have got a great game plan to solve that problem.

“At the moment, I’m taking every step at a time but I am hoping to go all the way and win a world title further down the line, a lot of people expect big things from me so I really want to do it and prove to them what I am capable of.”

Tamworth Middleweight Kelcie Ball will make his first appearance as a BCB fighter since his first-round defeat to Midlands Area Super Welterweight Title holder Ryan Kelly last September.

‘Canon’ Ball is currently 9-1 as a professional and looks to bounce back from his defeat following a month away from boxing when he takes on his opponent next month.

Ruben Campbell, son of former Dudley super lightweight Raza, will also be making his professional debut on the night

Light heavyweight Ricky Summers and Walsall super bantamweight James Beech Jr complete the card.
