Dougie Curran Coming Home For a Geordie Fight Night
Dougie ‘The Bullet’ Curran is the latest fighter to be announced for Wraith Promotions and Precision Sports’ first joint event ‘The Black And White Fight Night’ at the 02 Academy in Newcastle city centre on May 18.
Promoter Steve Wraith has his heart set on making Newcastle a bastion of invincibility on the pro boxing scene and he believes nights like these are what the public want.
“This will be our biggest fight night for quite a while in Newcastle,” stated Wraith, “and I’m hoping that fight fans will come along and support local lad Dougie Curran.
“Dougie has had over 20 pro fights and all bar one have been away from home. Now it’s time for him to show his home support what he can do. We are in discussions to get Dougie a crack at either a Northern Area or a British Masters title fight at super-featherweight but this show may come too soon and he may have to wait until the summer for that.
“The show is shaping up nicely with an all Geordie line up including Andrew Buchanan; Rob Ismay; Mark Clauzel; Davey Ferguson and Paul O’Hagan already confirmed. We are also thankful to Grosvenor Casino, Ideala, Protector Security, M-Trec, Unique Prospects, Holler Watches, and Heineken for coming on board as sponsors. It’s vital to have the financial support for these shows and businesses are backing us.”
The Black And White Fight Night is Saturday May 18 at 4pm. All tickets are £30 and available from the venue, all boxers, www.wraithpromotions.com or by calling 0191 2299631.
