Waterford professional boxer, Rohan Patrick Date (4-0) will debut in a new weight division (147 pounds) this weekend at the Siesta Boxing and Al Siesta’s Bracknell Boxing Carnival this Saturday September 29th against fellow undefeated fighter Reyhan Todorov, who will be hungry to atone after a dubious draw against Wes Smith on The Battle of Bracknell in July.

Date had previously fought around the light middleweight limit of 154 pounds, knocking out three of his five opponents since turning professional in 2016.

“I’m very excited to get back out there on the 29th! I feel I didn’t display my full potential in my last performance, something that the commentators pointed out that they didn’t expect this type of boxing from me.“

Date will now be in his second fight with Guildford based trainer John Edwards as he tries to perfect his boxing skills, but made it clear he is still looking for knockouts.

“Yes I can be a slick boxer and will box to my coaches instructions, however if the opportunity presents itself I won’t hesitate in getting the other guy out of there early doors. I want to go back out and make amends for last time and the best way to do that is to take peoples heads off as I had done in my previous fights.

“I’m down at welterweight for this fight as that’s really my walking around weight and I think I’ll be able to push back my opponents, get physical and really hurt people down at this weight.”
