Boxing: Rio clash next up for Ferndown fighter Iain Weaver
4:57pm Friday 1st November 2013 in Sport
UNBEATEN boxing prospect Iain Weaver is set for his fifth professional bout at the end of this month when he takes on Brazilian veteran Edilson Rio.
The Ferndown fighter will clash with the 37-year-old from Sao Paolo in a six-round contest on Saturday, November 30 at York Hall, London.
Rio has won just two of his nine fights since 2011 following a two-year sabbatical but he is an experienced campaigner with 10 wins – seven via knockout – from 26 career bouts.
Weaver’s latest fight will be sanctioned by the German Boxing Federation with the British Boxing Board of Control still refusing to grant the 23-year-old a UK licence.
- Boscombe Youth ABC is hosting an amateur boxing night on Saturday, November 9.
The event is being held at the Beaufort Community Centre in Southbourne with doors opening at 6pm.
The fight night will include 20 bouts – 10 junior and 10 senior – with a bar available and a raffle also taking place.
Entry is £10 for adults, with free admission for children.
