Wraith ready for Temple Park showcase



Wraith ready for his best show yet 

On the eve of what is quite clearly his biggest show to date Tyneside boxing promoter and CEO of Wraith Promotions, Steve Wraith, took time out of his ever busy schedule to discuss ‘Winner takes it All.’

Headlined with not one, but two title fights, an English super featherweight and Northern Area lightweight clash, Wraith is proving those doubters wrong and showing that, even when the chips are down and backs are against the wall, he is still here.

“How do I start now, I mean really, even Frankie Hutchinson was nervous for me earlier today (at the weigh-in) with regards my getting a big title fight on,” he began.

“I’ve now got two on tomorrow though and I’m really looking forward to both as I’ve had some close calls regarding title fights in the past so I’m pleased these two have stayed the distance.

“Now though, with both these fights, then we’ve got four great lads even if it is going to be a big step up for (John) Green, and, if I’m honest, both bouts really are going to be a close call.”


Wraith’s main event will see the home-town favourite, Anthony ‘Babyface’ Nelson, square off with Leeds’ Terry Broadbent over ten threes for that English strap. Not only will the bout be in Nella’s home town but also a homecoming for the promoter as he takes professional boxing back home for the first time in over six years.

“I’m definitely looking forward to this one,” continued Wraith.

“Probably more so than any of the other shows even though being able to give someone like Bradley Saunders his homecoming, now that was special.”

Going into the show Mr Wraith was full of high praise for those around him and concluded by saying that: “You reap what you sow and I really do believe in karma.

“In any game you need to be honest both to yourself and other people so, when you’re working with someone like Mal Gates, then there’s very few better than him in this game.”

Wraith Promotions, in association with Precision Sports Management brings an afternoon of professional boxing to Temple Park, South Shields. With two title fights, and nine bouts in total, the doors will open at 12 noon and the first bout around 130pm. Tickets will be on sale on the door priced at £50 for ringside and £30 standard.
