Re: VIPBoxing.com News - Blackpool Tower show (16/02/08)
Yeah, heard good things about Arnfield – and you can’t argue with the form he has show so far or the fact he is taking on a decent fighter in Martin Marshall next time out.
I did see him live in the final of the Junior ABAs at Huddersfield in 2005 (i think) and he was given a beating by Birmingham's Thomas Costello, who is 3-0 (1) as a pro, trained by Richie Woodhall and just signed a four-fight deal with Frank ******. Arnfield showed he had toughness to go with his skills that night.
That would be a good little rematch a couple of years down the line. Thomas is operating at welterweight and Jack at light-middleweight so there wouldn’t be a huge weight discrepancy.
Looks a very good card, by the way. I would have liked to have made the trip up with Terry ‘The Brummie Bulldog’ Adams (aka the scourge of Birmingham city centre’s bouncers, fighting on the card) but I’m at a show in Leicester the same evening.
