Nathan Heaney vs Jack Flatley Fight Preview
On March 25th, when Queensberry returns to the Telford International Centre, Nathan Heaney will fight Jack Flatley for the vacant WBA Continental middleweight championship, and Andrew Cain will defend his WBC International Silver super bantamweight title against Ionut Baluta.
Five rounds were fought between Stoke’s Heaney (16-0, 6 KOs) and Bolton’s Flatley (20-3-1, 4), on the undercard of the Joe Joyce-Joseph Parker heavyweight clash at the AO Arena in Manchester in September of last year.
After a head clash left Heaney with a serious laceration above his right eye, the fight was stopped in the fifth round on the recommendation of the doctor. All three judges agreed that Heaney had the upper hand in the battle and gave him victory.
Cain (10-0, 9) of Liverpool is a knockout fighter who has won and successfully defended his title twice. He first stopped Pablo Ariel Gomez in the first round in Telford last April and then Luis Moreno in the second round at York Hall. The 26-year-old was sidelined in November due to a shoulder injury, but he will return to action against the Romanian-based team in Bushey, Baluta (15-4, 4), his hardest opponent to date.
After beating TJ Doheny, an Irish world champion, and David Oliver Joyce, an Irish Olympian, Baluta fought and defeated Michael Conlan in a close battle for the WBC International championship in May of last year.
In November, he fought Liam Davies for the vacant European championship, but Davies won after 12 rounds.
On the same night, Jason Cunningham (31-7, 7), a former European super bantamweight champion, will make his boxing comeback.
After having his undefeated streak at super bantamweight snapped by Zolani Tete in July last year at Wembley, the 33-year-old Cunningham is back in title contention by challenging for the empty WBO Intercontinental super bantamweight crown.
Due to an injury sustained by the Telford man, Cunningham’s bid to regain his European championship from Liam Davies has been postponed.
The card also features Raven Chapman, who will be making her first defence of the WBC International featherweight championship she earned in September by defeating Jorgelina Guanini in Manchester, England (5-0, 2). In Telford, the Omen will face Lucie Sedlackova of the Czech Republic (15-1-1, 6).
Future heavyweight sensation Moses Itauma will be fighting in his second professional bout over four rounds, while super bantamweight Brad Strand (9-0, 3) of Liverpool will reach double digits in his professional career over eight rounds.
Worcester’s Owen Cooper (7-0, 2), the welterweight champion of the Midlands Area, and Telford’s super lightweight Macaulay Owen (5-0, 1) will battle it out over six rounds.
Super lightweight Jimmy Smith of Ilkeston will make his official debut alongside Natty Ngwenya (1-0) of Queensberry in a four-rounder.
