Birmingham’s prominent Middleweight hope, Wayne Elcock will face Howard Eastman, the British and Commonwealth Champion, on a card promoted by his own trainer and Pat Cowdell following their successful purse bid for the bout.
Electing to keep the date and venue will suit both fighters, as another delay would have caused further frustration for fans too. Elcock will enjoy home advantage at the Aston Leisure Centre on September 28th. And the fight will presumably be rauciously attended by Birmingham’s growing boxing fan-base.
Eastman’s quality and level of competition will make him a favourite for the bout, but Elcock will be eager to inflict the veteran contender’s first defeat on British soil and is certainly eager to grasp the opportunity.
