Blackpool boxer RP Davies bids to get his career back on track in his town tomorrow night.

He fights at The Village, his first bout since a shattering defeat inside two rounds against William Warburton in the spring.

Davies, who takes on Kieron Gray over six rounds tomorrow, is determined to bounce back and has called on the services of nutrition expert Kerry Kayes, who has advised many fighters, including Blackpool’s Brian Rose.

Davies said, “Sparring has gone well and I have got in a lot more rounds during this camp. Kerry has really opened my eyes to nutrition, diet and hydration. “

“He has offered me some great advice and has helped me to correct some things and implement other things into my fight camps, such as eating more regularly and drinking much more water.”

“I am feeling good at the higher weight. I think I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been and am looking forward to fight night.”
