YORK boxing prospect Will Harrison will make his long-awaited professional debut next month.

Harrison announced his move to the paid ranks back in December but has had to wait patiently before his first outing in the ring amid the coronavirus restrictions.

The former Jorvik Boxing Club amateur will compete over four rounds at the Elland Road Banqueting Suite in Leeds on Friday, November 12.

The fight will take place on the undercard to the English super-bantamweight title fight between Jack Bateson and Ramez Mahmood.

Fellow boxing stars Darren Tetley, Ishmael Davis, Ellis Hopkins, Danny Murrell, Harry Fryer, Koby McNamara and Henry Thomas are also on the bill.

The show is co-promotion between Mark Bateson as well as MTK Global, the management giants with whom Harrison penned an advisory deal with last year.

As well as the support of MTK Global, who also guide the career of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Harrison will be managed by York’s Glenn Banks.

He will be trained by Sean O’Hagan, the father and coach of former featherweight world belt-holder Josh Warrington.

Elsewhere in boxing, a trio of professionals trained by York boxing legend Henry Wharton will return to the ring tomorrow evening.

Middleweight Rob Magill will be hoping to seal a second straight pro victory in a tough test with Scarborough’s George Rhodes, who has six wins on his record from eight fights.

John Patrick Harker is also seeking back-to-back wins when he boxes Taka Bembere.

Hughie Wilson makes his debut as a professional against Dale Arrowsmith.

All three contests at the Oldham Leisure Centre will take place over four rounds.

Fellow Wharton charge Rafal Benka had been due to feature on the bill but pulled out through injury.
