Gary Lockett will make the second defence of his WBU middleweight
crown against Roman Aramian at Newport Sports Centre on Saturday,
18 November.

Aramian, 23, who was born in Armenia but has German nationality,
has 19 wins from a 26-fight career with 13 KOs.

The "Armenian Warrior" has won his last six fights, five by stoppages,
but has rarely fought outside of Germany.

"I’ve seen this guy’s record and he looks like a right tough nut to
crack," said Cwmbran-man Lockett, 29.

"I’m preparing for a long night, but once I lock on to him with my
heavy right hand and left hook then I know I can take him out."

Bradley Pryce will make the second defence of his Commonwealth light
middleweight title on the undercard.

Also in action will be Welsh fighters Gavin Rees, Barrie Jones, Kerry
Hope and Nathan Cleverley, although none of the opponents have yet
been confirmed.
