Unbeaten duo Paul Archer and Adam Kettleborough ready for Stadium of Light encounter

Posted: July 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

A determined Adam Kettleborough aims to defy the odds when he takes on undefeated prospect Paul Archer at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland this evening.

From winning his debut bout in front of 300 people at Grove Leisure Centre in Newark in April, the popular light-welterweight’s next fight will be much tougher.

The 26-year-old comes up against a County Durham opponent who boasts an unblemished record of four victories from four fights.

“I can’t explain how excited I am about this opportunity,” Kettleborough told Lincboxing.

“I am relishing the chance. I’m a bit anxious because it is a different situation for me to be in.

“My promoter Carl Greaves asked if I wanted to keep busy and I said yes. I never thought I’d be fighting somewhere as famous as the Stadium of Light this quickly.

“I will have to be ready to give it everything. Anyone with four wins from four is going to be very handy.”

Tough battle ahead: Adam Kettleborough

After sealing a desperately hard-fought victory against Jatinder Johal in his debut, Kettleborough’s second scheduled fight in Sleaford in May was cancelled after Northampton’s Jamie Spence pulled out of his Midlands Area title challenge against Amir Unsworth.

But the Newark-based scrapper insists he has kept himself ticking over in the gym.

As well as hill sprints with English light-middleweight title challenger Andrew Lowe, Kettleborough has been sparring consistently.

“I was disappointed to have my last fight cancelled but that is what happens in boxing sometimes,” added Kettleborough.

“I got back in the gym and I’m feeling good. I’ve been in the professional game only a short while, but I love it.
