Stefy Bull of Stefy Bull promotions this upcoming Saturday is presenting his latest promotion titled “Repeat or Revenge” headlined by Andy Townend v Peter Cope. A clash which is a rematch from their 2014 clash in which Townend won via a fourth round stoppage. The main event has a strong supporting cast with some good match-ups combined with some good talented prospects coming up through the Stefy Bull stable.
The chief support to the under-card is an intriguing yet competitive match-up between Maxi Hughes and Danny “Cassius” Connor at lightweight over ten rounds. Both Maxi and Danny have respected trainers in their corners with Jimmy Harrington and Alex Wilkey respectively.
Maxi of Doncaster is currently on the path back towards major titles following a previous unsuccessful tilt against Martin J Ward. Many believing that Hughes belongs at that level. Maxi Hughes has operated at a much higher level compared to Connor if you was to look at the records of each fighter. Maxi has lost to quality operators in the form of Martin J Ward and Scott Cardle respectively whilst also collecting an majority draw against Ward also.
Danny a native of London, has cased a figure of frustration with the lack of notable fights coming his way. By all means not the most technical of fighters, emphasises toughness and heart in abundance. Danny is known for his bitter rivalry with Tyler Goodjohn, with the pair fighting three times previously. Connor also has victories over Ricky Boylan and Chris Evangelou and is a former Southern area title holder.
Lee Appleyard (11-3) as reported yesterday on HitHardNews will no longer be facing Marcus Ffrench, instead facing Zoltan Szabo of Hungary. Appleyard’s English lightweight title defence against Ffrench has been rearranged for the 24th of February.
Curtis Woodhouse (23-7) will mark his second fight of his comeback against Lewis van Poetsch. This contest will act as preparation for Woodhouse for his bout in February against John Wayne Hibbert. The pair have met previously in 2013 with Woodhouse scoring a points victory following his defeat to Derry Matthews.
Anthony Tomlinson (3-0) will be seeking to round off a successful debut year with fourth career victory against Marcin Ficner. Tomlinson is highly regarded by handler Stefy Bull, who always carry’s a large supporting contingent from Rotherham and further afield. Tomlinson is another fighter of which Bull has high hopes for the future, who is known for his smooth, intelligent and efficient boxing style.
Terri Harper will be making local history as she becomes the first female professional fighter to come from the South Yorkshire region. Terri who is only 19 years old, is former amateur with international honours with the England set-up previously.

Harper will facing off against Monika Antonik (1-7) over four two minute rounds.
Ross Blackwell (4-1) will be having his second fight since his ring return in as many weeks. The Barnsley based fighter has sold a lot of tickets as his fan base prepares to travel to Doncaster. Stefy Bull rates Blackwell highly, backing him to progress on the area title scene in the near future. Ross will be facing Fonz Alexander (5-68), a known entity for testing up and coming fighters up and down the country. Ross returned to the sport following a long spell away to concentrate on opportunties outside of the ring. Ross boxed Liam Wright in his hometown of Barnsley winning a points verdict over four round by 40-37.
