BOXER Danny Quartermaine started what is set to be a busy month by beating Leicester’s Radar Aziz in Birmingham on Saturday night.
Quartermaine proved to be a handful for his Leicester-based opponent from the start and provided him with a shock on Halloween night.
From the off the 17-year-old had Aziz pined against the rope and worked his body and head with his non-stop action.
It is a tactic that is proving to be very successful for Quartermaine, of Leamington’s Cleary’s ABC, who is learning to read his opponents more and tire them out.
Up next for Quartermaine is a meet up with the England squad this Saturday where he will be looking to impress the coaches and he will be fighting with the squad in Belfast next Friday.
Coach Edwin Cleary said: “It’s a great opportunity for Danny as he’s pulled in with the England squad training and is sparring in front of the top coaches.
“It’s now up to him to impress the coaches and make an impression.”
After that Quartermaine returns to action on home soil for Cleary’s next boxing show on November 16 at the Assembly in Leamington and he will have two more fights before December.
Cleary added: “We’re trying to keep Danny busy and boxing as much as possible.
“He is catching the top lads up and beating them but he lacks the experience.”
