Bailey Ready For Showdown With Senkovs On 30th April


Recommended Posts

Slough’s Ian Bailey is set to face Mansfield based Latvian Pavels Senkovs at the Graham Earl, in association with TKO Boxing Gym, promoted ‘Return of the Mac’ event at Tattersalls Sales Rooms in Newmarket on Saturday 30th April 2011.


Bailey, who campaigns in the Super Bantamweight division, will be looking to reverse the run of losses incurred during the 2010 season. Saying that each fight last year were taken at very short notice and was against high flying unbeaten prospects Ryan Walsh, Carl Frampton, Kid Galahad and Michael Walsh.


Bailey is well known for his willingness to take on the best, even with just a few days notice, and that he always comes with the intention to fight for a win. So no surprise that when a prospect needs a stern test Bailey is called upon to provide it.


For those that see Bailey’s scintillating bout against Belfast’s Carl Frampton in June last year will understand this better than most. Throughout the bout Bailey pushed forward and tested his highly rated opponent, who is touted as a future World Champion by no less than former World Featherweight Champion Barry McGuigan.


After six all action rounds the King’s Hall crowd gave both fighters a standing ovation, not something you would normally expect from such a partisan crowd.


Frampton’s manager and mentor Barry McGuigan also complimented Bailey’s performance when he told the assembled media, “I thought it was absolutely ideal. It was six hard rounds and I knew that the kid wasn’t going to make it easy for him and that’s what he needs to do. Bailey was strong and had a tight defense.”
