George Jarvis returns to action next weekend as he faces off against Prince Owuh, who steps in as a late notice replacement for Joe Craven of Bad Company gym. Craven pulled out of the fight after sustaining a hand injury that will require surgery. Not only is George still fighting on the show, but he is moving up a weight division from Middleweight to Super-Middleweight.
Training out of Lumpinee Martial Arts Academy in Crawley alongside the likes of Paulo Da Silva (a Muay Thai Magic ambassador and former 4-Time World Champion) and his father John Jarvis, George has been working hard and preparing since the turn of the year. The eagerly awaited match-up between Joe Craven and George has been in the works since early 2020, with the fight initially booked for November 2019 to determine the UK number 1, with cancellations since due to injury and COVID-19 postponing one of the biggest domestic clashes to make. Fans are desperate to see that fight and it is one that will surely be made later on this year.
George has not fought since late December 2019 where he defeated WBC 10th ranked fighter Rosario Presti in dominant fashion. In the same year, he defeated Marcel Adeyami to win the WBC national title. Despite not fighting in close to 18 months, George has been slaving away in the gym to perfect his craft and is working towards his goal of becoming the UK number 1 Middleweight.
Currently ranked 9th in the middleweight division, George takes a step up, not only in weight, but in opposition where he faces the number 2 ranked super middleweight in the UK. Despite the challenges that come with this, George is facing them head on, insisting that he feels great knowing he will be fighting at super middleweight, and is already on-weight, a testament to his dedication and hard work.
