The Ring of Horror Boxing Preview and Start Time

LIVE ON: Saturday 21 October 2023

WHO IS BOXING?

On Saturday 21 October, live from the Rainton Meadows Arena, The Ring of Horror boxing event will take place. The card features 12 different bouts, including a range of different prospects.

Unbeaten cruiserweight Michael Webster (8-0) will compete in the heavyweight division, with opposition to be determined. Webster’s only fought once this year, a four rounder as a cruiserweight where he knocked down Ryan Labourn 3 times but ultimately won on points. Webster is currently inside Boxrec’s top 15 for the UK cruiserweights, but with his next fight at heavyweight, it will be interesting to see whether he still holds the same power.

Anthony Ornsby (6-2) will look to recover from his stoppage loss to Christian Flores (13-20-2) in a 6 round contest in the welterweight division. All in all, there’s 10 different unbeaten prospects in action at the Rainton Meadows Arena.

There’s also the return of Jordan Latimer (2-3) to the ring, fresh off of signing with Matt Jobes’ Jobes Boxing Gym and Promotions. Latimer started his career strongly picking up two victories, and was heading in a bright direction as he fought next on an Eddie Hearn Sky Sports show. The card included Lewis Ritson, Joshua Buatsi, Dave Allen, Hosea Burton, Thomas Patrick Ward and CBD magnate Anthony Fowler.

Latimer was brought in at the last minute, and placed against debutant Tommy Docherty, with a 10 pound weight differential. Latimer lasted only 8 seconds as he was knocked to the canvas and the towel was thrown in. Whilst the fight looked comical, and Latimer was the object of derision, he actually suffered several significant injuries, and left the ring for close to three years. Two further bouts followed again as the away fighter, resulting in a points loss and a TKO defeat both by undefeated fighters.

Now Jordan Latimer is returning to the ring, but back as the ‘home’ fighter under Matt Jobes’ banner. Undefeated from the home end, but coming off 3 losses, he is searching for his first win in 5 years against Oliver Brackenbury-Danquah.

Jordan Latimer Interview

Boxingcontent.com caught up with Jordan Latimer before his bout against Brackenbur-Danquah.

You’ve never lost when you have been the home fighter. Are you confident you can win against Brackenbury-Danquah?

I am confident. Especially since I am going back up in weight and not weight draining. I have a lot of respect for him and I’m not overlooking him or past him.

In my away fights I have contested I feel I haven’t been dealt a good hand outside of the ring. However that’s no excuse. So we are looking to build and push on and achieve some things within the sport.

Once your boxing career ends, what do you want to have achieved?

I want to have fought the best possible fighters I could at my level. That’s why I took away fights as I like the challenge to achieve more. I’m not afraid of losing or fighting someone better.
