O’Maison, Yousaf & Shafiq In Action For Sheffield Steel At The Lane!
Tickets are now available for the Sheffield steel at The Lane showdown taking place this November. 5 fights have been matched involving 5 of Sheffield’s hot prospects and veterans in action on the night.
Sam O’Maison, Razaq Najib And Dave Howe from the 26RR camp as well as Kyle Yousaf and Atif Shafiq from the Ingle Gym will all be on show at the November event looking to edge closer to bigger title shots.
The last time all these fighters where in action at Bramall Lane they all won impressively. 1 of the most impressive was this first round knockout by Kyle Yousaf when he faced Gyula Dodu.
Since this fight Kyle Yousaf had another 2 fights at Bramall Lane, 1 against Felix Moncada in the Platinum Suit winning by TKO and the other against Louis Norman on the Brook Vs Spence Jr card winning by points.
Sam O’Maison won his last fight at the Lane against Lukasz Janik. Sam unfortunatly lost by TKO when he faced Luca Giacon as a last minuet replacment to fight for the IBF International Super Lightweight Title. O’Maison is due to fight for the English Lightweight Title early next year and has stated that he is fighting in November to keep him active until then. If he wins this will be a nice confidence boost for him before he has another title shot.
Atif Shafiq’s last fight was also on the Brook vs Spence Jr undercard when he faced Dean Evans winning by points decision. Shafiq recently did an interview stating that he is on the hunt for title shots in the near future so a win in November will help him get closer to that goal.
After losing to David Allen at the London O2 Arena Dave Howe got straight back in action the month after to get a win against Glasgow heavyweight Jay McFarlane. Since facing Allen, Dave Howe has won 2 out of his last 3 fights with his last 1 being a rematch against McFarlane which he won again.
Razaq Najib will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing against Samir Mouneimne for the vacant BBBofC English Featherweight Title. Najib is still early in his career winning 3 out of his last 5 fights and a total of 6 fights so far. With each fight Razaq is showing improvements and that he is learning from each fight so it will be interesting to see his form in November.
This card takes place Friday 17th November at SUFC Bramall Lane Platinum Suit. Ticket are priced at £75 for VIP with a meal and waitress service to tables, standard tickets are available for £35.
