Lancashire Boxer Mark Jeffers Set For The Biggest Fight Of His Career

By Jake Hartley-Moore - Reporter

Lancashire boxer Mark Jeffers will look to make his professional record 3-0 in what he describes as “the biggest fight of my career”

The 18 year old has already started to make his name known in the boxing world after his first two fights with his most notable win being that of a hard fought victory against Ben Heap as an undercard fight for the Crolla Vs Linares bill.

Jeffers, who is currently 2-0 in his professional career, will be fighting at Leigh Sports Village on December 3 with his opponent yet to be announced but the youngster isn’t too concerned about this.

“it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s all about your own belief and ability.”

The youngster, who resides in Eccleston, Lancashire, has already started to amass a great following for himself at such a young age with both of his fights seeing him bring more than 250 fans. This has played a significant role in his growth as a fighter.

“The support in Manchester was brilliant considering I live in such a small area but there’s going to be loads of supporters coming again looking at over 200 people,” Jeffers stated when discussing his growing fan base.

With the young Irish born fighter being trained by former WBU Welterweight champion Michael Jennings and his brother Dave, it can be said that it is a huge fight for Jeffers with him having a point to prove.

“In the fight at Manchester I wasn’t doing the things I was supposed to be doing from we had been doing in the gym, I just didn’t perform well,” added Jeffers.

Regardless of his beliefs over his last performance, Jeffers is still undefeated but isn’t letting himself get overconfident and won’t fall to any trash talk from his opponents.

“ I don’t think you need to do all the talking, it’s all about what I do in the ring,” he said. “Those who can’t do their talking in the ring do a lot of talking outside of it.

“I do mine inside of the ring”.

Jeffers is, however, still highly confident and will be looking to keep up his impressive performances.

“This is is the best I have looked in all honesty and I think it is going to be the best performance you will see from me definitely,” he concluded.
