Middleton based promoter Kieran Farrell hosted an open sparring session at the people’s gym this week ahead of his next Boxing event on September 29th which is proudly sponsored by Morson.
The show will be taking place at the Whites Hotel at the Macron Stadium and is a clear representation of the growth of ‘Kieran Farrell Promotions’ over the last two years. The progress is a testament to the work ethic and hunger within Farrell who suffered a near fatal brain bleed in 2012 which spelt the end of his career as a fighter.
With the focus on his recent events being quality rather than quantity, Kieran is excited is to bring another card stacked with talent to fight fans in the north:
‘My lads have progressed from the little shows they’ve been doing, they’ve built their records up and they’re going to be fighting for central area titles. Lee Clayton for the Bantamweight title and George Brennan for the Featherweight title’
When speaking about where he sees the promotion being in the next few years, Kieran stated:
‘We’re filling up the venues and once we start making champion after champion, then the next thing would be TV and I believe we can get there’
Also in the gym for the open sparring session was Team Morson’s newest addition Osman Aslam. The Bolton born boxer recently fought on the Amir Khan vs Phil Lo Greco card on Sky Sports and will be competing on Khan’s undercard again on September 8th.
Osman offered his thoughts on having the opportunity to fight alongside Khan on back to back shows:
‘When I was younger everybody was talking about him becoming Commonwealth champion and World champion and I used to watch him myself on TV. Now that I’m on his undercard twice, it’s a very big thing’
The 24 year old also discussed what it has been like since joining the Morson family:
‘Morson is such a big company and the staff are such nice people. They’ve dealt with me so professionally and have looked after me’
Osman aims to secure the British and Commonwealth titles in the next twelve months and Morson will be supporting him every step of the way.
