Kay Prosper has a glorious opportunity to snatch the European super-lightweight title from Sandor Martin in Barcelona. In an action-packed card as Matchroom continue to unearth talent in Spain, Prosper will headline
Elsewhere, we have Gavin McDonnell in action, also battling for a European crown, with Andoni Gago putting his featherweight title on the line. Prosper has just one defeat in 16 outings as a professional, emerging victorious against Bilal Rehman last time out, while Martin is much more seasoned with 39 fights and just two defeats.
This will be his second defence of the European belt, after winning it back in 2019 against Andrea Scarpa, before a defence against Joe Hughes. Prosper is hoping his work alongside Xavier Miller, who also trains Dillian Whyte, will pay off in what is the biggest night of his career to date, and reflected on his incredible story and pride at receiving his British passport, but now he is aware of the monumental task in front of him as a big underdog and travelling fighter, which could impact his chances to win on points.
“I’m sure he has trained hard and that he’s going to be in good shape but it’s tactical warfare and I don’t think he can prepare for what we’re going to bring to the table,” he told The Independent. “I’m not going to get no favours over there. I can’t go and fiddle it. I have to dominate him or knock him out. I’ll be going there with a maximum violence intention.”
