STEFY Bull has predicted Micky Davies will live up to his Dynamite tag when he makes his professional debut next month.

Davies picked up a reputation as an explosive big hitter during his two year amateur spell – particularly after leaving an opponent knocked out for almost ten minutes.

And manager Bull fully expects the Stainforth light middleweight to transfer his power to the paid ranks.

Bull told the Free Press: “Micky has got power in both his hands and he’s going to trouble a lot of people with both of them.

“But I believe if he lands a right hand clean then his opponent will be going to sleep.”

The 27-year-old will make his professional debut on a Bull promoted show at the Dome on September 1 against Aaron Fox, completing a near three year journey.

Davies first walked through the doors of Bull and Dave Hulley’s Mexborough gym in late 2009 but was advised by the pair to learn his trade in the amateur ranks.

He signed up with the gym’s amateur arm, the Ernie Oxer School of Boxing, and went on to win eight of his 11 fights.

Bull said: “It really impressed me that a 25-year-old bloke wanted to do something with his life and walked through our door.

“He needed tuning up and the best place for that was with our amateurs.

“They did a great job with Micky and he did a great job as well.

“He only lost to good kids in tough fights during those two years and it was only a matter of time before he was ready to go.

“His work rate is fantastic, he’s really dedicated to making a success of this.”

Davies’ debut has proved to be good business for Bull with more than 200 followers making the trip from Stainforth, helping the September 1 edge closer to being a sell out event.

Hatfield’s Gavin McDonnell tops the bill as he takes on Scott Gladwin for the vacant Central Area super bantamweight crown while Edlington’s John Anthony meets Carl Wild.
