Lee Carter is deep into camp ahead of his return on March 1 on Empire
Boxing Promotions’ first show at Irlam and Cadishead Sports Centre.

Carter joins former Central Area Champion and English Title Challenger
Chris Conwell, Michael Gomez Jnr, Jake James and debutante’s Jamie
Anderson and Simon Haworth on the bill at the Manchester venue.

Carter, and many of the above are now working under the guidance of
Manchester mainstay Gary Booth at Salford City Boxing Academy. The one
time Grenadier Guard opened up about his camp for his upcoming contest
and his link up with Gary Booth.

Carter said, “Camp is going really well, we’ve had a change in
opponent as I was previously scheduled to fight the lad I had lost too
but he got knocked out fighting for the Czech Heavyweight title so
wasn’t available but we have got a tough replacement in.

“I’ve loved linking up with Gary Booth. We bounce off each other and
he’s bringing the best out of me. I think that people will notice a
massive difference on March 17 at Irlam and Cadishead Sports Centre.”

Gary Booth has been a mainstay of Manchester boxing for years. Not
only boxing as a professional, but also running Salford City Boxing
Academy, formerly Irlam ABC, for over a decade. Booth and Jamie
Anderson at Empire Promotions are looking to make a splash on the
Manchester Boxing scene in 2018. ‘Smooth’ opened up about his and
Empire Boxing Promotion’s plans for this year and years to come.

Booth said, “Firstly I’m focused on bringing the best out of the lads
I train. Lee Carter is one of them and him, like the others are going
from strength to strength on a daily basis. This is the progression I
want to see.

“We’ve assembled a great team and I’m really excited about our first
show on March 17. This will be the first of many shows in Manchester
this year and it will give young boxers a platform to showcase their
skills and live the dream – that’s what I am in this game for.”

Tickets for show at Irlam and Cadishead Sports Centre on March 17 are
available from all the fighters on the bill and from the Salford City
Boxing Academy.
