A 2010 Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist, 33-year-old Edinburgh native, Stephen Simmons gets the first shot at domestic honors this Saturday. Turning professional in March 2011, eight straight wins got Simmons up and running in the pro ranks, picking up the Celtic Title along the way.He then unanimously outpointed the unbeaten David Graf to pick up the WBC Silver International Title and followed this up by stopping Wadi Camacho in the tenth and final round in June 2014. After a marking time win over Courtney Richards in Leeds in October, Simmons tasted defeat for the first time against the rejuvenated Jon Lewis Dickinson, who stopped the Scotsman in eight in Newcastle.

Simmonds rebounded with four straight wins on small hall shows in Glasgow and Edinburgh, before he too took a gamble like Askin did against Glowacki. Simmons traveled to Germany to take on the then 21-0 Noel Gevor and came away on the wrong end of a split decision. This was in October 2016, and Simmons has fought three more times, all in 2017. He defeated two journeymen before, in his last outing, clearly outpointing another common opponent in Simon Barclay to set up his shot at the British Title this weekend.

Also the undercard includes undefeated 2016 Rio Olympic Gold Medalist Joe Joyce who meets American Donnie Palmer.
