Jay Whelan Wheels to Start Rolling in Brentwood

Jay Whelan Wheels to Start Rolling in Brentwood

Former world kickboxing champion Jay Whelan is eager to kick off his professional boxing career in style this weekend.

The Essex-based prospect, who won multiple world titles before switching to boxing, makes his bow on Saturday’s #MTKFightNight at the Brentwood Centre – live on iFL TV.

Whelan said: “I’m just excited, excited, excited! I can’t wait to get in there, hear that first bell and get to show what I can do.

“Fans can expect a lot of speed from me and some good counter-punching. It’d be great to bag a stoppage win on my professional debut.

“It’s a crazy coincidence that everyone in our gym comes from a kickboxing background. Even one of our coaches Adam Hart was in that game!

“I believe I can be a world champion one day, I had the dream and believed it in my kickboxing career and it ended up happening so there’s no reason it won’t in the boxing game as well.”

Joining Whelan on a busy bill in Essex is his Dutch gym-mate – and another former world kickboxing king – in Serginio Kanters.

Topping the card on the night will be undefeated local hero Danny Dignum, who faces a former world title challenger in Rafa Jackiewicz with the likes of Danny Egbunike, Shaquille Day and many more forming a lengthy undercard.
