Bethell pushing himself ahead of maiden six-rounder

Popular Brandon Bethell (3-0, 1KO) has made an excellent start to life in the paid ranks, and fight number four will see the lightweight talent step up to six rounds for the first time on June 21st at the Hangar Venue in Wolverhampton on BCB’s ‘Pride of the Black Country’.

The 22-year-old is boxing once again in his home city after winning his first three fights, including a first-round demolition of Logan Paling and a points win against veteran Liam Richards.

Last time out, the confident lightweight faced tricky Lithuanian Simas Volosinas, coming away with a shutout on referee Ryan Churchill’s scorecard.

“As the fight gets closer, I’m just feeling excited, said Bethell. This time we are stepping it up to six rounds after three good wins over four. I enjoy the longer distance when we spar in the gym, so I think it will definitely suit me and bring out my best.

“When I look back at my fights, there are always things I could have done better. He held a lot and slowed the fight down, which over such a short distance can be a bit frustrating. I showed on my debut that I have power, but these last two I have shown I have more to my game, and my fitness is good.

Bethell trains at the Trojan Martial Arts Academy in Walsall Wood, where the former kickboxer has built up a strong relationship with coach and gym owner Gavin Burrows.
