[VIDEO] Sheffield’s Tommy Frank is delighted to be boxing on his first TV card

Sheffield boxer Tommy Frank is looking forward to performing on his maiden TV card in front of his home city ahead of his bout at the Ponds Forge Arena.

Frank, 24, is currently 4-0-0 going into his next fight and is extremely confident that he will extend his winning streak.

The Super-flyweight’s opponent was announced just over 24 hours ago, to be fellow Sheffield boxer Anwar Alfidi, however Frank isn’t worried.

“There should be a really good atmosphere and I’m really looking forward to getting back in the ring at such a great arena. When I’ve got my win, I can relax and enjoy the rest of the card.”

However, Frank hints that there could be a potential fight being set up against Doncaster’s ‘Supersonic’ Tommy Chadburn, with both boxers calling each-other out in interviews, which has hyped up a potential bout for 2018.

Frank, who trains at Sheffield Boxing Centre, which is owned by Glyn Rhodes MBE, said: “There’s no animosity on my part. It’s a big fight for me, and 100% winnable too. Tommy (Chadburn) wants to fight at Bantamweight, where I currently fight at Super-flyweight, however there’s only around three pounds in it so it’s not a big move up.”
