KICKBOXING: ESSEX Kickboxing Academy fighter Reece Rowell is in action on Saturday October 26 at Purfleet’s Circus Tavern.
And the fight instructor, who works at Steve Kerridge’s gym, has a major title in his sights.
He’s up against Spain’s David Pineda for the ISKA super middleweight title.
Pineda is the current Europeamn champion at the weight and will prove a tough test for the local fighter.
Kerridge said: “Reece is training hard for this one and he’s been sparring against others including Jason Vassallo who is also in action on the night.”
Vassallo fights Diego Ramos at the fight night at the end of the month.
Kerridge said: “When Reece met him before, the fight had to be stopped because Pineda had a bad hip injury. I think that it was dislocated – but now they have a chance to meet again and settle this.”
