With Sheffield duo Sam Sheedy and Liam Cameron both in away-corner title fights in the coming weeks, Dennis Hobson is confident of a win-double that will add major belts to his boxing stable.
On October 22, Sheedy faces Tommy Langford for the vacant British middleweight belt at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena; while Cameron travels 'down under' to Victoria on November 25 to take on Australia's Zac Dunn for the Commonwealth super-middleweight crown.
Both men enter the contests as underdogs. Sheedy got the call to face Langford - for the belt vacated by Chris Eubank Jr - at just three weeks notice. 'Cannonball' Cameron, meanwhile, will need to negotiate the very heavy, unbeaten fists of Dunn, who has knocked out 18 of his 22 opponents. Despite the apparent uphill tasks, Hobson has faith in the ability of his fighters and believes the duo will return home with a belt around their waist.
"I think Sam has got everything in his locker to upset Tommy Langford," revealed Hobson. "The only reservation I've got, even though Sam is a fit kid, is that it's at short notice with just three weeks of concentrated training.
"Sam's a slippery southpaw though, whereas Tommy is very conventional with a high work rate. Tommy is a quality fighter, but I see Sam giving him all sorts of nightmares. People think Sam isn't a puncher, but I know he can whack. The work rate and conditioning is the only issue but apart from that I really do fancy Sam to do a number on Tommy. As regards ability, this is a fight we've been after for Sam for a while.
