THE promoter of Bracknell boxer Luther Clay’s latest contest wants to make big fight nights a regular thing in the town.

Clay will be searching for his 10th professional victory when he takes on Yahya Tlaouziti at Bracknell Leisure Centre this Saturday night.

And Al Siesta of Siesta Boxing Promotions is eager to build on the region’s strong links with the sport.

He said: “I have big plans for Bracknell and another show in mind for the end of the year. I am planning the biggest show Bracknell has ever seen with multiple title fights and to have Luther fighting for a title on the same event.

“I want it to be an international card with some great fighters alongside some of the finest local talent, and to have it televised. This weekend’s event is the final rehearsal before a massive event in December.”

Clay will step out in front of his hometown fans once again when he faces Frenchman Tlaouziti (13-3-3) this Saturday.

The 22-year-old welterweight did not disappoint in his last fight at the venue in July when he dominated the seasoned Renald Garrido with a unanimous decision victory over eight rounds in the entertaining Battle of Bracknell.

The same night also saw Jonny Phillips win a close fight with Jamie Speight via decision and local favourites, Naylor Ball, George Lamport, Billy Allington and Irishman Rohan Date all participated on the card.

However, Clay, dubbed ‘The Black Panther’ now faces arguably his toughest fight yet against Tlaouziti who has never been stopped in 19 professional fights.

But the Bracknell boxer knows he must overcome such hurdles if he is to secure a title shot before the end of the year.

Siesta added: “I want to have regular shows in the area, every two or three months and develop the taste for boxing in the town. Obviously I have Luther as one of my main fighters and I have just sent South African super bantamweight Ludumo Lamati (14-0) to train with him and his coach Keith Marner in Bracknell.

“Bracknell has started to turn into a bit of a training base for elite fighters.”

He continued: “Other towns and cities do not have the same pool as fighters compared to the Berkshire area.

“There is a real love for it here. Other towns such as Guildford, Reading and Basingstoke could be good destinations for shows, but that’s why I like Bracknell, it has a good venue and it’s close to all those towns.”

Saturday’s undercard will be stacked with more local talent including George Lamport, Sam Horsfall, Aaron Collins, Nick Webb, Naylor Ball, Derek Renfrew, Andre Grant and Irishman Rohan Patrick who will be moving down to welterweight.
