TOP PROSPECT: Hatfield super flyweight Connor Nixon.

DONCASTER boxers will once again take centre stage on a bumper night of boxing at the Dome on Saturday.

Armthorpe middleweight Jason Ball completes the triumvirate of town fighters in Central Area title bouts – alongside Gavin McDonnell and John Anthony – as he defends his crown.

Those three ten round bouts headline a night which will see six other Doncaster fighters take to the ring.

Scawthorpe’s Luke Crowcroft and Stainforth’s Micky Davies will both make their professional debuts.

Three time national amateur champion Crowcroft faces a tough introduction to the paid ranks with a Doncaster derby against Bessacarr’s James Tucker who will be keen to cause an upset on a rare home town appearance.

Big-hitting light middleweight Micky Davies is set to face Wiltshire fighter Aaron Fox in his first bout.

Exciting super flyweight Connor Nixon is looking for a second straight stoppage in the fourth bout of his so far unbeaten career.

The Hatfield fighter is back in against a fellow super flyweight and will be keen to show off the power shots that downed previous foe Ladislav Kollar.

Nixon takes on Bulgarian fighter Stefan Slavchev – who has won three of his five fights – over four three minute rounds.

Denaby Main light middleweight Adam Jones will meet southpaw Rick Boulter in his second professional bout.

Jones made his debut in June with a comfortable points win over journeyman Steve Spence.

Completing the Doncaster interest is Stainforth’s Charlie Thompson who will look to get back to winning ways against 164 fight veteran Jason Nesbitt.

Welterweight Thompson suffered defeat in his last two bouts on the road, dropping him to 2-2-1 but will be hoping for some home comforts when he returns to the Dome.

The packed night of boxing also includes a third pro bout for unbeaten Barnsley fighter Robbie Barrett against Graham Fearn, Wakefield’s Andy Townend against Ross Payne and the explosive Adam Dingsdale’s meeting with Dan Carr.
