(MAR 16) Unbeaten Featherweight prospect
‘Saint’ George Jupp is set to face Harrow’s Raffi Khan at the Steve
Goodwin promoted ‘Essex Eruption’ - sponsored by Fists of Rage new to
DVD movie - at Goresbrook Leisure Centre in Dagenham, Essex, this coming
Saturday. 20 year old Jupp is proving to be something of a
sensation on the London scene and is being tipped as a future champion
by many local boxing luminaries, especially since his magnificent
performance back in December, when he stopped the highly durable Pavels
Those in the know point to the fact that Senkovs had only been stopped
once, in thirty fights, previously and that was the result of a cut from
an accidental clash of heads.
Jupp’s opponent Raffi Khan has only had one outing to date, when he
traveled to Glasgow to face Michael Roberts in October last year. The
reports that came back were exceptional with many saying that Khan was
unlucky to lose the points decision - by a very close 57-58 margin.
On learning that his opponent on Saturday will be Khan, Jupp said, “I
haven’t seen him and don’t know too much about him. I only know he’s had
one fight and lost it.
It was a very close fight up in Scotland with Michael Roberts, who’s a
very good fighter. So Khan’s obviously a very capable fighter so it
should be a brilliant fight, I’m really looking forward to it.
I know it’s come late in the day but I’ve been training for whoever they
could get for me. I’m fit and I’m on my game so it doesn’t matter who
they got for me I know I’m ready.
I’ve been doing a lot of sparring with Kaash (Akaash Bhatia), I’ve also
been sparring a couple of Irish boys from Graham Earl’s camp. I’ve been
sparring anyone in the gym really, I’ve been sparring Ricky Boylan so
I’ve had really good sparring for it.
I couldn’t have asked for better preparation really so roll on the 19th,
it should be a good test and hopefully a good fight for the public.”
