KEIGHLEY boxer Ibrahim Nadim is set to feature on a huge night of boxing shown live on SKY Sports.

The Steeton-born fighter will make his second appearance inside a professional ring on the undercard of former world champion Scott Quigg's fight with Jono Carroll at the Manchester Arena in March.

Nadim cruised to victory in his first pro fight outpointing the Nicaraguan Misael Zeledon 40-36 at Bethnal Green's York Hall, back in December.

The Ricky Hatton-trained has a bright future after winning the England Boxing National Amateur Championship as a featherweight last year before determining that Paris 2024 was too far in the future.

The 20 year-old recorded his amateur success fighting out of the Bury ABC under trainer Mick Jelly, famous for training Amir Khan and Quigg before they gained national fame.

The card on March 7, hosted by famous promoter, Eddie Hearn' Matchroom Boxing, will also feature the likes of British stars Hughie Fury, Callum Johnson and Scott Fitzgerald.

Nadim speaks about how excited he is to fight on the same show as Quigg and wants to become a headliner himself at some point in the future.

He said: "I trained at BURY ABC where Scott Quigg trained and to be on his undercard is a dream come true for me.

"There have been so many big fights at this venue.

"Hopefully one day I can follow in Scott's footsteps and top the bill at the Manchester Arena."

"I'd like to thank Eddie, Matchroom and Sky Sports Boxing for giving me this opportunity to fight on the undercard of a great main event.

"I'll show you all what I'm about on March 7.

"I'm still getting used to the transition into the pro game.

"I need to learn to plant my feet a bit more and let some more power shots go."

Nadim trains at Hatton's gym in Hyde where peers Tommy and Tyson Fury have trained in the past.

Back in August, the Manchester legend spoke to us at the Keighley News praising his new young talent who he expects to go all the way.

Hatton said: "It's very exciting times.

"He was a very, very exceptional amateur. He is of a tall and slender nature and has fast hands. He has a massive engine.

"I don't want to put any pressure on such a young man's shoulders. It is very very early days.

"He punches very well. He fights up close.

"He has to tick boxes as a fighter. No doubt his talent is there.

"He has got to prove his heart and his stamina and have a boxing brain. If he ticks all of those boxes, the world is his oyster.

"He has to work hard. I'm very excited for the future for him."
