Trio of south west London boxing prospects take to the ring looking to build momentum

Three of south west London’s brightest boxing prospects have fights scheduled this weekend and they will all be looking to impress.

Wimbledon’s Louis Adolphe and Clapham’s Kirk Garvey are in action at York Hall in Bethnall Green tonight, while Croydon’s Charlie Edwards is in Sheffield tomorrow.

Flyweight Edwards will take on Mikheil Soloninkini at the Motorpoint Arena after stopping Craig Derbyshire in his debut in January.

Edwards, who signed with Matchroom Boxing in December, will be fighting on a stacked card, topped by Kell Brook’s defence of his IBF world welterweight title.

After the announcement of his signing to Matchroom, Edwards made clear his intentions to fight Kevin Satchell for his British title as quickly as possible.

Georgia’s Soloninkini should not pose much of a threat to those plans, having only won three of his 11 professional bouts.

Edwards is already confirmed to feature on the bumper Matchroom bill on 30 May at the O2 Arena, which features world title fights for Kevin Mitchell and Lee Selby.

Adolphe will be hoping to pick up his third win in as many fights after making his professional debut in July of last year.

The welterweight, who won his last fight in September via stoppage, will face Danny Little over four rounds.

Despite the six-month hiatus, Adolphe should be able to extend his unbeaten run and move towards bigger fights.

Also on the York Hall bill is light-heavyweight Garvey, who will also be looking to pick up his third consecutive win after debuting in July last year.

Garvey will fight Krzysztof Golec, who will be making his professional debut.
