High Peak cruiserweight Jack Massey is gearing up for his upcoming bout next weekend in familiar territory.

Massey, from Chapel-en-le-Frith, heads to the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on Saturday October 12 when he is scheduled to take on Sheffield’s Will Burkin.

It will be Massey’s second professional fight since joining the paid ranks earlier this year.

The fight sees Massey return to the scene of his debut victory, when he overcame Jody Meikle on his maiden outing back in July.

Massey, aged 20, is currently hard at work in the gym under the guidance of trainer Bobby Rimmer.

Tickets are available by ringing David Massey on 07968 291598. They are also on sale at the Royal Oak in Chapel.
