Carl Greaves believes his latest show will help several “up-and-coming” boxers add to their growing reputations later this month.

Lightweight Kev Hooper, 27, competes for the International Masters title against Bulgarian Yordan Vasilev on February 24, on his hometown show at Grimsby Leisure Centre which also features Lincoln heavyweight Gaz Johnson, and Hull’s light-welterweight Joel Haigh.

Greaves, who recently tasted success when Shane McPhilbin completed a stunning TKO win to capture the British cruiserweight championship from Leon Williams, said: “The programme has a lot of up-and-coming boxers looking to make their name in the sport.

“There are also a few experienced lads who have been about a bit and who can fight, so we’re hoping for a decent crowd of around 600.

“It will be really entertaining and I’m sure it will be a great show for fight fans.”

Bell time at the leisure centre is 7.30pm. Tickets are £40 ringside, £30 general admission.

Card: Kev Hooper vs Yordan Vasilev
Sammy McSpadden vs Rick Boulter
Joel Haigh vs Kristian Laight
Gary Johnson vs James Oliphant
Matthew Mallin vs Matthew Hardy
Jody Meikle vs Tony Shields
