Boxer Ward Brings Fight To Mansfield After US U-Turn​​

10th November 2016

Boxer Ward Brings Fight To Mansfield After US U-Turn

Mansfield’s veteran boxer Steve Ward will go glove to glove with American Mike Palmer next year, but NOT in the United States as originally planned.

Due to unforeseen circumstances in the States, the fight has been switched over the Atlantic to England, and will take place at the brand new Civic Quarter at the Civic Centre here in Ward’s home town, Mansfield.

The showdown will take place on Saturday 8th April 2017 (Times TBC) and Ward says it’s a dream come true, to be fighting in his home town

“It’s really brilliant to me because Mansfield took me under their wing when I started on this comeback trail in 2010. Now it’s time for me to give a little back. For the first time ever there will be a super veteran heavy weight championship of the world, a twelve three-minute round fight, and it’s going to be at the Civic Quarter – that’s brilliant for me”

Speaking of his opponent, Mike Palmer, Ward added “We’ve never laid a glove on each other – we know about each other, we spoken, we don’t really like each other to be honest.”
