Davies will be looking to use his vast promoting experience over the past 14 years to put on a professional boxing show within the next four months. Both men will work closely together, Slater will manage and provide some of boxers for these Weston events.

The pair has strong connections in the pro boxing fraternity and will host championships boxing within the town before the year is out.
