WAKEFIELD boxer Andy Townend will aim to make it a hat-trick of professional wins when he enters the ring at the Doncaster Dome on Friday night.

Townend was due to fight Pavels Senkovs but the Latvian has pulled out, meaning the 22-year-old will now face experienced Londoner Johnny Greaves instead.

The former Kettlethorpe High School pupil has been waiting three months to get back in the ring following victory over Evgeni Geshev in March.

But he’s ready to carry on where he left off against Greaves.

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s been going really well in training and I just want to get out there” he said.

Greaves, 33, has 85 professional fights to his name, losing 82 and winning three - making good reading for the Merrie City boxer.

There will be nine fights on the bill and Townend, who trains at Stefy Bull’s Empress Ballroom Gym in Doncaster, still has a handful of tickets available.

They’re priced at £35 or £55 for VIP tickets, including a meal and free entry into the after show party.
