Weston-based boxer Shaun Lambert is to make his professional boxing debut in Swindon on December 8.

Weston-based Shaun Lambert hopes to make statement when he makes his professional boxing debut in Swindon on December 8.

Lambert, a ground worker by day, fought on both the white-collar and amateur scenes and takes confidence from his strong past performances.

He said: “I did well as an amateur. I had 16 fights and won 12 of them and most people that I hit, I usually hurt. Hopefully it will be the same in the pros.”

Shaun is currently signed to BCB promotions and has been sparring and working with a selection of top prospects in the build-up to his first paid contest, including current British middleweight champion Jason Welborn.

Tickets are available from Shaun or from neilsonboxing.co.uk
