Three Oldham boxers continue their fledgling professional careers this Saturday night. 

Aqib Fiaz, Jack Rafferty and Joe Eko are all in action at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on a Steve Wood VIP Promotions card.  

For Fiaz it will be just a second professional outing, having won his debut on home soil at the Oldham Leisure Centre last month. 

The former amateur standout is training with former British and European light middleweight champion Jamie Moore and is being tipped for big things despite being just 19. 

The lightweight, formerly of Northside ABC, trains alongside Carl Frampton, Rocky Fielding, Jack Catterall and others in Astley. 

“He looked very good on his debut,” said Wood. 

“Hopefully he can do the same again on this show. There’s a bit of pressure on his shoulders with some of the comments but he seems to be enjoying it.” 

Shaw’s Rafferty has won all seven of his fights thus far with the 23-year-old ending three inside the distance. 

The welterweight’s last outing saw him outpoint Richard Samuels over six rounds at the Bolton Whites Hotel in March and he will be looking to continue his progress with hopes he will be in title contention by the end of the year. 

Eko completes the set looking for a sixth professional win as he comes back from a hand injury. 

The 26-year-old has won all five of his fights on points thus far, last getting the better of Dean Jones over four rounds in November, also at the Victoria Warehouse. 

In the main event, Fiaz’s training partner Mark Leach faces Brett Fidoe for the vacant English bantamweight title. 

A busy spell for Oldham fighters continues seven days later with Jack Kilgannon in action on another VIP show at the Bolton Whites Hotel on May 11. 

The 8-0 middleweight looks to continue his unbeaten streak on a card headlined by home favourites Jack Cullen and Jack Flatley fighting for English titles. 

Both shows will be streamed online at
