Stroud super-welterweight Max Mudway returns to the ring in Swindon on September 28 for the third fight of his promising boxing career, writes Will Hale.

Max, at 23 years-old, is one of the south west’s most promising prospects and has been massively impressive in his two-fight undefeated professional career to date.

Speaking about his last fight, the Jon Pitman-trained fighter releases that he is quickly gaining a strong reputation in boxing’s paid ranks.

He said: “My last opponent Jordan Grannum was no mug and I brought off a good performance against him. My manager and my team both believe in me and with every fight I’m growing in maturity, getting better in sparing and growing in confidence as well.

Mudway’s quest to improve and sharpen his skills has led to him getting on the road to spar top talent in Tony Borg’s St.Joseph’s gym in Newport.

“There are a lot of good lads there. Some are just turning pro after top-quality amateur careers and there are former Commonwealth games representatives and Welsh titlists there. It’s all 50-50 sparing.

And Max knows that, with the right focus and by staying active, he will be able to rise up through boxing's levels.

He added: “My next fight will see an even bigger step-up in my performance and will bring good things for the future. I want to have another two fights before the end of this year."
