Harry Limburn is gearing up for his second professional fight as he gets a taste of action at the famous York Hall on Saturday.

The storied London venue has seen most of the greats of British boxing grace the ring down the years and Southampton 21-year-old lightweight Limburn is the next to get his turn early in his career.

Limburn faces durable journeyman Andy Harris and is aiming to back up his debut win and get some more valuable experience.

Limburn’s trainer, Gary White, said: “This is a decent test for Harry. Andy Harris has boxed a lot of good fighters down the years, and in fact fought Matty Tew about five years ago.

“It will be a good test for him and if he doesn’t turn up and perform he could come unstuck, but I don’t expect that to happen and for Harry to have too much for him.

“Out of our gym the last couple of years we have had Ryan Garner, Jack Hillier and Harry Limburn.

“People are really talking about Ryan, and Jack too, and rightly so, but Harry might just be the dark horse.

“He’s strong and can box a bit, he works too and trains around it and never moans. He just gets on with it because he wants to do it and that’s really important.”

Hillier has also been given a date for his professional debut.

He will figure on a card at the O2 Academy in Boscombe on Saturday, June 16.
