HARWICH boxer John Wheatley is aiming to become king of the ring when he competes in tonight’s Eastern Counties Championship, on Canvey Island.

The Harwich and Amateur Boxing Club fighter has a welterweight contest against Liam Goodjohn, of Haddenham ABC.

He heads into his fight in great form, having recently won the Essex elite welterweight title at Harlow.

The 26-year-old gained an impressive unanimous points decision over Brentwood’s Adrian Martin.
