Professional boxer Craig Brewin from Stamford ready for his next bout at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester

Professional boxer Craig Brewin is relishing his rapid return to the ring.

Brewin made his professional debut at the end of last month when he recorded a unanimous points win over Braintree's Dylan Draper.

The Stamford star is now eagerly-awaiting his second bout just two months after his debut when he features on the Vicious Promotions bill at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on Friday, October 22.

Brewin said: "I can't wait for it. It's come around quite quickly but I want to stay active.

"I don't want a long wait until my next fight because it's like being on holiday and you can put weight on so I'm happy to be straight back out there.

"The debut fight is out of the way and I will be a lot more switched on and know what it's all about.

"It's so different from the amateurs but this time I will know what to expect. It's the same venue and I will be up for it again."

Brewin has been continuing to spar five days a week since his last outing and is also looking at adding a strength and conditioning class to his weekly regime.

He fought in the welterweight division on his maiden bow but is considering moving down to super lightweight if his training continues to go to plan.

Brewin added: "I want to get myself in the best shape possible and I'm going to give it a couple of weeks before seeing what weight class that I fight at.

"I fought at welterweight last time out but I'm not that far off being a super lightweight.

"It's the weight that my coach wants me to fight at but I need to make sure that I'm right before I do it.

"I don't want to lose too much weight and then come in lethargic with no energy. I need to do it properly with my diet and so that I am training well and have good strength."

Brewin's professional debut attracted a healthy following of support to the Manchester venue.

And he is hoping that will continue as the bigger the backing he receives helps his career keep moving forward.

He continued: "A lot of people who went last time said that they really enjoyed it and want to go again and they have told their friends about it as well.

"I have had a lot of different people message me already and there's been a lot of interest in it.

"Hopefully I can sell more tickets than last time because I've got one of the hardest working promoters in boxing who wants the best for all of his boxers.

"The last show was really successful and it does make a big difference having such support from your town."

The event at Trafford Park in Stretford starts at 7pm (doors open at 6.30pm) and tickets are priced at £45, £65 and £85 (ringside seats).
