Fight Night Champion: Andre Lambe vs Dwayne Lawrence (Photograph by Akil Simmons)

Andre Lambe is relishing his first title shot as he looks forward to taking part in the Epic Entertainment Fight Night Champion card at The Shed, in Dockyard, on October 22.

The 27-year-old is scheduled to face Paul Ispas for the vacant American Boxing Federation welterweight belt on a night when his fellow Bermudian professionals Nikki Bascome and Mikey Parsons take on Cody Kelly and Jamaica’s Gregory Miller respectively.

For Lambe, who has a flawless record of five wins, all by knockout, it is an opportunity to take a the first major step in his burgeoning professional career.

“I’m pretty stoked about the chance to be fighting for a first belt,” said Lambe, who stopped Dwayne Lawrence in his previous bout in June. “I believe I’m more than ready for it.

“I don’t feel any more pressure because it’s a title bout. It’s what I get in the ring to do, it’s an opportunity to claim a belt and I’m expecting to take it.

“Winning the belt would be the first big milestone for me. It is something I have worked for and it would set me up for bigger and better things. It’s a process and this is the first step needed to take my career to the next level.”

While Lambe remains confident of extending his perfect record, he conceded Ispas, who has a record of four wins, one defeat and three draws, poses his toughest challenge to date.

“I’ve watched tapes of his previous fights and this is definitely a step up from my previous opponents,” he added. “I always expect a tough fight and prepare for it to be that way but I think my record shows I know how to stop opponents.

“He’s had four victories in his career so far but I believe I should win be winning this fight and it’s another chance for me to show people what I’m all about inside the ring.”

Also featured on the card will be a host of local boxers including Adrian Roach, Ngai Franklin, Jaylon Roberts, Otero Smith and Josef Ferreira.

Ringside seats can be purchased for $150 and include VIP entry, two free drink tokens and an EPIC treat box. VIP tickets are available for $125, while general admission is $80.
