The 5-3-2 (2) record is misleading. He can fight and has had good wins over Alex Phillips and MBSS rival Manny Zaber.

Baillie has more amateur experience than anyone else in MBSS – he had 58 bouts and shared a room with Kell Brook during an England training camp – turned pro in Australia after emigrating and fought in China as well before settling in Tamworth.

He is robust, has skills – and is game.

Josh offered to fight Sam Bowen – and nobody offers to fight him.

Baillie got his shot at the big time last year against Lee Appleyard on a Sky Sports show. Appleyard was just too big.

“If you lose, who cares ?” is Baillie’s attitude. “I want hard fights. I don’t want to just fight journeymen.”

Baillie looks to have a decent quarter-final draw in MBSS. Louis Fielding (7-4) has to be considered an outsider having lost to Holt and Jack Summers – and Baillie knows him well. They were stablemates before Baillie left to join Shaun Cogan, who fought for Midlands and Commonwealth honours in his own ring career.

In the other quarterfinals, Zaber (10-1) faces West Bromwich mover Jack Summers (3-2), Sangha meets Waqas Mohammed (2-0-1) and there’s a good clash between the Shinfields’ rangy Joel Ducker and Luke Jones, a former kickboxing champion trained by Scott Lawton who looked sharp last time out.

There are four other fights on the show, featuring light-heavyweight gunslinger Josh Stokes and Dilly Singh, a willing cruiserweight from Coventry who has fun fights.

Boxing starts at 2.0pm and tickets are available at the door.
