Southern Area Cruiserweight Champion Leon ‘Solid’ Williams joins two legends of sport, top British trainer Jimmy Tibbs and American promoter Don King, as guests on Steve Bunce’s Boxing Hour on BBC Radio London, 94.9, this coming Thursday.
Leon will be talking about his British title aspirations, his recent change of management and training to Johnny Eames and his Ultrachem TKO Gym, as well as his upcoming showdown with Blackpool based Slovakian Richard Turba, at the Frank Maloney promoted show at the Brentwood Leisure Centre this coming Saturday, the 5th February 2011.
Jimmy, who during his 50 year boxing career has guided some of Britain’s greatest boxers, such as Nigel Benn, Chris Pyatt, Charlie Magri, Barry McGuigan, Steve Collins, Dennis Andries, Wayne Alexander, Lloyd Honeyghan, Alex Arthur and Frank Bruno to World Title success, is currently coaching some of the best young prospects in the country today – Colin Lynes, the Mitchell brothers, Kevin and Vinny, former Olympian Billy Joe Saunders, Freddie Turner, Akaash Bhatia and Billy Morgan.
Whilst Jimmy will be on the show to talk about one of the current fighters he trains at the Ultrachem TKO Gym in Canning Town, former IBO Light Welterweight World Champion Colin Lynes, who starts a new championship campaign as a Welterweight on Saturday 12th February 2011 at Olympia in Liverpool, you can be sure the conversation is bound to drift to stories of some of his former charges.
Whilst it’s fairly easy to know what Leon and Jimmy will be talking about, it’s a bit more difficult to know just what America’s greatest showman, since PT Barnum, Don King will have on his mind. To find out you’ll just have to tune in.
Speaking earlier today Steve Bunce said of Thursday’s show, ”It’s always good to have fighters on the show from outside the mainstream.
“Leon is a prospect – an exciting fighter and he’s heading in the right direction with Frankie M and Johnny Eames guiding him.
“Don King and Jimmy Tibbs have promised to be on this week and I’ve also got a couple of trick cards up my sleeve.”
