Black Country Boxing chief Errol Johnson has come up with a great idea to create interest in small-hall boxing.
Or rather, the Sauerlands came up with a great idea – and Johnson pinched it off them.
The Midlands Boxing Super Series, a distant relation of the World Boxing Super Series, gets underway at Walsall Town Hall this Sunday (OCT 15) with four quarter finals over six rounds and reaches its climax sometime next year with a fight for the Midlands Area super-featherweight championship, vacated by Lyon Woodstock Jr.
The Midlands Boxing Super Series – to be known as MBSS for the remainder of this article – gives fighters something to work towards, fans get 50-50 fights and Johnson might even make a few bob.
Not every show Johnson puts on – and he puts on at least one most weekends – makes money, but he keeps putting them on to give his stable of 50-odd boxers work. That’s a real boxing man for you.
Fans could even make a few quid out of MBSS.
