Andrew Keates, 26, is preparing for the fight of his life for the Continental Welterweight Title this weekend and with that comes endless opportunities. The local boy from Leek has grown up in his granddad’s footsteps and now has the opportunity to showcase his talents on a national stage and beyond.

After winning his last fight against Ryan Fields and gaining the Midlands Welterweight Title. He now has the opportunity to prove himself on an even bigger stage and this is what he had to say on the upcoming fight: “It means a lot to me, as to get this belt opens up a lot of doors for me. It’s a massive fight for me and hopefully, I can go on to bigger better things after it and maybe defend the title on an even bigger stage.”

It wasn’t easy to get to this point, as last year was a long old road for Keates as he had two defeats in 2017. However, he won the all-important last fight at the back end of the year, to set up this mouthwatering tie this weekend: “The last fight was brilliant for me, its opened up a lot of doors and put me back on the map for big titles and I’m super excited about the opportunities.”
