BRAMFORD boxer Steve Spartacus is booked for Sunday afternoon fight action next month.

The 25-year-old light heavyweight will be bidding to make it 11 wins out of 11 since moving into the professional ranks after a prominent amateur career.

Spartacus, whose real name is Steve Smith, is lined up to take on heavyweight Tony Booth in Eugene Maloney's December 8 show at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.

Success here will set Spartacus up for a fight with Radcliffe Green next February for the vacant Southern Area light heavyweight crown.
