BRAMPTON boxer Josh Wale is thanking his supporters by personally signing every ticket for the biggest fight of his career.

Josh, who trains at his Moor Road gym in Wath, will be facing off against Dundee’s Jamie Wilson for the vacant British bantamweight title on July 1 at the Doncaster Dome.

The 29-year-old said he wanted to do something to say thank you to the people who have supported him since he started his professional career ten years ago and some even earlier, when he first boxed for England aged 11.

Josh said: “I started off signing one or two, but now I’m looking at doing between 200 and 300. The support has been brilliant. I’ve boxed a lot at Doncaster Dome recently but have also been all over the country, to Aberdeen, London and all over.

“Some people have been watching me since I was 11 year old and I owe them a lot.

“This match is probably one of the biggest fights of my career, boxing for the British title which I have done twice before once I drew for it, and the other time I came close.”

The fight is Josh’s third crack at his dream British title but his first in the home corner.

A win would see him become Barnsley’s fourth ever born and bred British champion.

Tickets for the show can be bought directly from Josh at the gym, or through calling 07870 897304.
