Lightweight Lewis Smith want to continue entertaining fans in 2018 after impressing on his debut last year.

The 24-year-old made his debut on MTK London’s December show on a bill topped by Olympian David Price.

He was originally scheduled to fight earlier n the year, but an injury sustained in camp had kept him out longer than expected.

Trained by the very well-respected Alec Wilkey, the Basildon resident will be looking to go 2-0 when he returns to the ring in March.

And Smith is looking to make up for lost time after his solo outing in 2017.

“We are in the entertainment business and I want to entertain,”he said.

“I want to excite crowds, starting on the 3rd March and for all my fights next year.

“On my debut you saw a glimpse of my front foot boxing, the relentless stamina and head hunting, I want to showcase that more.

“At some times last year after the injury I really felt like 2017 wasn’t going to be the year I made my debut so it was great to get out in the end – especially after pulling out of the October fight.

“I took December off, I had basically gone through two camps to fight just once, so it was good to refresh everything, spend time with family and go back to work.

“I’m back now in camp, Alec (Wilkey) is my coach and manager, he makes all of this happen so I just leave it to him.

“I’m excited to see what these year brings, I’ve had some great support on social media so I’m looking forward to fighting in front of them.

“If anyone wants to keep up to date for me can find me on Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram @lewsmith94 and on Facebook Lewis Smith.”
