Great Yarmouth’s Mikie Webber-Kane makes the first defence of his prized Southern Area title on Saturday.

Webber-Kane heads to the 02 Arena to take on Frank Norman, with his super-featherweight title on the line.

The 25-year-old upsets the odds with a superb stoppage win over Robert Caswell in February, and is in no mood to let go of the belt.

“They're in there for the same reason as I am,” said Webber-Kane, who trains under Tony Norman in Great Yarmouth and at Graham Everett’s Norwich gym.

“They don't care about the money in their pocket, they want to walk out of that ring with that Southern Area title around them. It's my job to work even harder than I was before.

“We're doing the right things inside the gym with Graham and Tony and Joe Everett - just got to do the right thing, just more of it. That's how I'm going to progress my career and excel from this fight onwards and upwards from there.

“Opponents are not in there just to walk around and earn their money, they want to come out with a win. They want another little green number on their record, same as I do. They don't want another red.

“Norman’s slightly taller than me, a southpaw, a very tidy fighter. He looks like he's got a bit of a punch power in him. He's under Frank Warren, what more do you need to say? Frank Warren doesn’t just take any numpties, you know he must be a good fighter at a good level.

Webber-Kane goes into the fight with a perfect record after a dozen outings, while the 25-year-old Norman has lost one in 12 – a surprise defeat by Brayan Mairena in September 2022, since when he has won twice.

“Obviously he had his defeat – but losses make fighters, that’s going to make him hungrier, make him work even harder,” said Webber-Kane.

“That was an error that he's now fine-tuned, I assume, and he's now realised what the error was and he's worked on that. The loss doesn't matter to me, that he’s lost against a journeyman, he is a good fighter and it is going to be a good fight and I'm going to be ready.”
