After making a successful start in the paid ranks, Motherwell boxer Iain Butcher is looking forward to impressing in his second pro fight at the Cleland Miners’ Club on Friday, December 9.

Following a dominating points victory over Anwar Alfadli last time out the flyweight will face Welshman Darren Pryce on the Prospect Boxing show.

Butcher said: “I thought my first fight went really well. I didn’t feel I settled into a rhythm after the knock down, but it’s a learning experience for me.”

Butcher is confident of victory when he faces Pryce.

He said: “I just need to find my distance as soon as possible and see what he’s got to offer.

“This time I will settle better and I believe I will come out with another win.”

The three-fight card will also see Bellshill’s super-bantamweight Kris Hughes take on Ulsterman Michael Harvey and a commanding victory will see him go on to face Commonwealth champion Carl Frampton.

The bouts are rounded off by Wishaw welterweight Chris Steel who takes on Malta’s Daniel Micallef who’s now relocated to Bellshill.

Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets priced £30, which includes a buffet and a comedian, are available by calling 01698 338888.
