    Boatang v Saunders WBU title fight this March, The Starboy, Kwame, will be entering the ring on Saturday the 23rd of March in the @fightzumileague to face his most difficult opponent yet for the WBU International Super Welterweight Title. The opponent, Kieton, is a seasoned boxer with a style that leaves viewers in awe. Having recently been featured on @overtimeboxing, Kietons abilities are immediately admired by those with a love for the sport.
    Saunders mum is a close friend of my mothers and I have been invited to watch this fight live tickets cost £45, might go, he`s acted with Dominic West who will also be there, hope he does well, has anyone on this forum heard of this kid?

    Not sure that makes them pros Mark.
    Some time ago I spoke to the cousin of a fighter who told me her cousin was the BritishFW champ. At the time it was Josh Warrington. Turned out the lad had won a micky mouse British belt on a white collar show. She actually didn't know the difference.
    It was " just boxing to her"
    Similar story but of course your mums friend could be -'quite right'

    Yes I suspect you may be right, she actually said it was Saunders first pro fight.

    The WBU and BBoC sanctioned it and Saunders won the WBU international title, Dominic West, actor from the TV series the wire was there cheering him on, it was a good night but a fight broke out in the crowd and one of the security staff ended having to place an ice pack on jaw afterwards.
