Fight night at the double for Quartermane.

DAN Quartermane has a big fight tomorrow night. Twenty-four hours later, he has another one ... On Friday night, the 17 year-old lightweight represents an England Select against Ireland Select at Villa Park and the following night, he's in action again at the Assembly Rooms in Leamington.

They will be the 16th and 17th bouts of a ring career that started a couple of years ago at Cleary's ABC.

"Boxing two nights in a row is tough," said coach Edwin Cleary, "but that's what happens in international tournaments and that's Dan's target."

Although Friday night's match at Villa Park is not a full international, there's a chance that recognition will come.

Quartermane impressed at a recent open day held by the Great Britain coaches in Sheffield and has been invited back for a further training session on Sunday, November 9. The move away from computer scoring in amateur boxing will suit the Cubbington teenager.

He doesn't throw single punches for the computers, he throws lots of punches to hurt his opponents.

"Natural aggression," is Quartermane's biggest attribute according to Cleary and he added: "Dan's in the gym six days a week and he listens and learns.

"Because he's so fit, strong and aggressive, he's been able to compete with guys who have been boxing for a lot longer."

Last season, Quartermane raised a few eyebrows by reaching the quarter finals of the Junior ABA championships - and he was a one-round winner for England Select against Wales Select in June.

Fifteen-year-old Lewis Williams also enjoyed a good season in 2013-2014 and he's matched with Jamie Aramayo (Phoenix Fire) in Leamington on Saturday.

Aramayo was beaten in last year's Junior ABA final and Cleary A final and Cleary said: "I'm told he has a lot of skill, but Lewis has an equaliser in both hands."

Tickets for the show in Leamington are available from 07723-389774.
