BOXING fans in the Black Country can look forward to even more intriguing match-ups after BCB Promotions joined forces with Hall Green Boxing Club.

The link-up will see boxers of the two gyms working together more closely for sparring and training and a host of Hall Green’s professional fighters will feature on upcoming BCB shows.

The likes of former British and Commonwealth king, Tommy Langford, Midlands Area Prospect of the Year Shaka Thompson and super-welterweight prospect Jordan Clayton all train out of Hall Green under the watchful eye of head trainer Tom Chaney.

They will now joined the BCB team that looks after the likes of Rowley Regis' world title challenger Jason Welborn, Halesowen's Lennox Clarke, who is still in the British super-middleweight top 10, and English title challenger Tyler Denny.

“It’s an exciting link-up,” explained Chaney. “I’ve worked with BCB on a number of shows – including Tommy versus Jason Welborn 1 and 2 – and I’ve been impressed with their professionalism.

“I’ve know (BCB’s head of boxing) Errol Johnson for many years and this is the natural progression for us both.”

“This is great news for BCB,” added Johnson. “Tom Chaney is an exceptional trainer and he has a real hot-bed of talent in Birmingham. I already manage a number of his fighters and I know how hard he works his lads, so this can only be good for Hall Green, BCB and Midlands Boxing.

“It’s the next stage for us and will allow both gyms to share best practice, organise camps and sparring sessions and, ultimately, push our boxers forward.”
