Cardiff plays host to an action-packed night of championship boxing on Friday February 10th, headlined by Sean McGoldrick and Scott Allan battling it out for the British and Commonwealth Bantamweight titles.
The Vale Arena is likely to be a sell-out for the event that’s showcasing plenty of talent in intriguing bouts before closing out the night with two sets of title action.
Lee Eaton of Lets Go Management said that their promotions in 2023 will continue to ‘make statements on the small hall scene’, and that will kick off with McGoldrick and Allan’s honours scrap.
McGoldrick (12-1, 3 KOs) told Boxing Social that the opportunity was a dream come true – especially given that he grew up only miles away from the venue.
“I am really excited for this fight. To fight for the British & Commonwealth title, local to home is a dream come true. Lee Eaton delivered the opportunity now it is time for me to deliver on Friday and be crowned Champion.”
The man who stands in his way is Allan (11-6-1, 1 KO). The Scottish fighter believes his preparation should see his hand raised when all’s said and done.
“Prep has never been better leading up to a fight. I am absolutely flying. I have already smashed 100 rounds of sparring, countless pad sessions, runs and conditioning workouts. This fight means the world to me, it’s my world title fight. I’ve always had the dream of becoming the British champion.”
The co-main event pits two undefeated fighters against one another for the Welsh Area Lightweight title when Rashid Omar (3-0) faces Enzo Maccarinelli trained Conor McIntosh (5-0).

Elsewhere on the card, undefeated Uisma Lima takes on Aljaz Venko in a super welterweight contest, and Swansea’s Brandon Scott looks to for his fourth professional victory against Sandeep Singh Bhatti.
Portugal’s Uisma Lima (8-0, 6 KOs) is up against Slovenia’s Aljaz Venko (5-3-1, 2 KOs) in a middleweight scrap that’s unlikely to go the distance. Former Team GB fighter, Aston Brown, will also feature.
