Ellesmere Port star Paul Butler aims to become a double champion on Friday 12th April at the Liverpool Olympia when he challenges for the Commonwealth Super-Flyweight Championship.
Butler, who won the British title last November defeating John Donnelly in the opening round with a crushing body shot, must now face the tough Nigerian Yaqub Karim who holds the belt.
Unbeaten in nine fights with four KO's, Butler is eager to put on another devastating show, but has promised not to be careless against the teak tough Karim.
Big-hitting Karim has stopped seven out of his 10 wins, with only two losses and a draw. He won the title in August in 2011 with an eighth round stoppage of Cobbina Johnson.
Butler v Karim headlines a quality packed that features Liverpool ace Stephen Smith in a six round contest; undefeated Liverpool light-middleweight Joe Selkirk; 2010 Commonwealth Games Champion Callum Johnson from Lincoln, plus Ellesmere Port talent Matthew Fagan in his second professional fight. Two of Wales’ best unbeaten prospects, super-featherweight Craig Evans from Blackwood and light-welterweight Lewis Rees from Tonypandy both feature on the undercard
