TYRONE NURSE is set for an April Sky Sports boxing outing after underlining his growing reputation with a convincing win over experienced Baz Carey.
The 40-36 points success over four rounds at Barnsley Metrodome was a sixth win out of six for the Huddersfield lightweight.
Promoter Frank Maloney made a point ofcongratulating the 19-year-old personally, and handed out the offer of a place on his televised show at Leigh on Friday, April 17.
Nurse clinched his latest victory despite suffering the after-effects of a chest infection, forcing a change of fight-plan.
“Tyrone was just that little bit flat going into the bout and had to use his head and box clever,” explained trainer Chris Aston.
“He had to call on his technical ability as much as his pace and power, get his jab going into Carey’s face and encourage him onto a few uppercuts.

“Carey is no mug and he had his moments, getting Tyrone onto the ropes a couple of times, but he dealt with the attacks well, and never got hurt.”
The Leigh show will be headlined by Matthew Marsh’s British super-bantamweight title defence against Mark Moran.
Meanwhile Aston will now turn his attention to Jason Thompson’s professional debut in Sheffield on Sunday.
The Huddersfield 25-year-old, who like Nurse fights at lightweight, built a strong reputation with Rawthorpe ABC, winning 15 out of 17.
