Blackpool middleweight RP (Ryan) Davies is relishing the chance to perform in front of the biggest crowd in his professional career when he boxes at the Winter Gardens on December 12.

He will take on the durable Duane Green, of Norwich, at the Blackpool venue.

Davies said: “It promises to be another tough, tricky fight against a hard lad, and I know I will have to be on top of my game.”

“It is exciting and an honour to be fighting at such a historic venue in my home town.”

“Ticket sales are going well and I appreciate the support I receive from the Fylde Coast public.’

“Hopefully I can put on a bit of a show for them and get the right result.”

Davies continued: ”It will be good to fight in front of a large home crowd in a proper venue, which will probably be the largest crowd I will have fought in front of.”

“This will be a good experience that is all part of the learning curve in becoming a successful boxer and hopefully this wont be the last time I am fighting at the Winter Gardens.”

“My camp is going well and I have enjoyed a lot of very tough sparring rounds, including with Adam Little, which should stand me in good stead come fight night.’

“I am now starting to really feel the benefits of moving up in weight and adjusting my diet and nutrition – I feel stronger, fitter and I am punching harder than ever.”

Outside the ring, things look like taking off for Davies as well.

He explained: “I have also purchased my own gym in Blackpool with my dad, which provides us with a great facility for my training and also for me to work out of.”

“Investing in this facility illustrates my commitment to developing and improving as a fighter and shows how serious I am about achieving success n boxing.”

“This provides us with all our needs for training and well help to enhance my pre-fight preparation.”

Standard tickets are priced at £30 and ringside seats are £50 with the first bell at 7pm.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 07780962863, emailing or directly from Davies Boxing Gym, Brinwell Road, Blackpool.

The bill includes English cruiserweight champion Matty Askin, of St Annes.
