Big punching Date plans to bring his power down to welterweight


Big Punching Rohan Patrick Date has taken the decision to campaign at 147 pounds.

Date had previously fought around the light middleweight limit of 154 pounds, knocking out 3 of his 5 opponents since turning professional in 2016.

Date will out on Siesta Boxing and Al Siesta’s Bracknell Boxing Carnival Saturday September 29th against fellow undefeated fighter Reyhan Todorov after a dubious draw against Wes Smith on The Battle of Bracknell in July.

“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 knock outs.

“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.”
