YORK’S featherweight boxer Cam Shaw has set the date for his fifth outing as a professional for this spring.

Shaw, who has four wins from as many contests, will return to the ring on Saturday, March 7 at the Magna Centre in Rotherham - the venue where Shaw kicked off his pro career.

The bout will be the first of several contests for the 22-year-old in 2020, who hopes to be in action at least five times this year.

“I can’t wait to be back in the ring,” said Shaw. “It’s the same arena where I made my debut.

“And there’s two eliminators on the card as well as some good up-and-coming boxers too.

“I’m excited to get back out there and show everybody what I’m capable of.

“”Camp is in swing now and my weight is looking good. I think things are really coming together now.

“I think that I’ve learned a lot in the last year about being a professional. About managing and making the weight, about training, nutrition, everything really.

“I still feel like there’s a lot more to learn, it’s not as if I think that I’m the best after my first year in pro boxing.”

Shaw began his professional career in July and earned himself four quick wins in the space of just five months.

At this early point in his career, the onus is on gaining as much experience as he can, he explains.

“Every fight that I take is calculated and I leave that to my manager, Glenn Banks, and my trainer, Billy Dawson,” said Shaw.

“They are picking the best fights for me at the right time. I can’t really ask for anything more at the minute as they’re putting me in testing fights, which I need.

“My last fight was at featherweight and I’m quite comfortable at that weight.

“Hopefully, when we’re going for titles, I’ll be at super-bantamweight or bantamweight.

“But, at the minute, I’m fine at the weight.

“For me, at this moment in time, it’s all about getting the experience in the ring for my career.

“The game is about getting in as many fights as I can.

“I think if you look at some of the top professionals around now, most of them have had quite a busy first two years.

Then, after that, they begin moving on for titles and the bigger fights and their number of fights slows down.

“I want to be as active as possible and give my fans what they want.

“I don’t want to be out once or twice a year.

“I train so hard and give so much of my life away to do this.

“I don’t want to be dipping into it every now again. It’s all or nothing really.”

The card will be topped by two eliminators for the English title.

Sheffield’s Christian Kinsiona faces Blackburn’s Micky Ellison in a final eliminator for the super middleweight title.

And, at bantamweight, there’s an eliminator between Razaq Najib of Sheffield and Leicestershire’s Louis Norman.

Prospects Amin Jahanzeb, Jimmy Joe Flint, Matt Hunter, Slanie Nolan, Howard Kehoe and Liam Dring will also feature on the bill alongside Shaw.

VIP front row table seats are priced at £90, ringside table seats at £75 (both including a meal) and standard tickets are £40.

Doors open at 5pm with the boxing starting at 6pm.
