UNBEATEN Adi Burden is hoping to make the most of his chance in the spotlight when he steps into the ring in front of the television cameras next week.

The Bicester BC light heavyweight takes on Geogi Valevski on Friday, October 20.

Burden’s fight is a preliminary bout on the same billing as Olympic medallist Joe Joyce’s professional debut.

As a result, the Bicester man’s fight at the Indigo O2 arena in London will be aired live on Dave.

Burden, who is a labourer by trade, is unbeaten in four contests and is looking forward to showing a wider audience what he is made of.

He said: “This is a massive opportunity for me.

“If I put on an impressive display it could really open doors for me.

“I’m training harder than ever to ensure I have my hand raised after the fight”.

Burden’s trainer Daza Usher added: “I am happy with how Adi has improved since his debut.

“He has really showed great commitment in the gym and now he is starting to reap the rewards.

“I see Adi reaching championship level, and events like this at the O2 will stand him in good stead once that happens.”
