BRAMFORD professional boxer Spartacus has been nominated for a crack at a Southern Area title.

Light heavyweight Spartacus, real name Steve Smith, said: "I've been nominated by the British Boxing Board of Control and am now waiting to hear who I will face."

Smith made it ten wins out of ten as a professional by knocking out Adrian Stonestreet at the York Hall in Bethnal Green earlier this month.

He said: "A Southern Area fight could be in November. Hopefully I can get in a warm-up fight before then."

Today Spartacus was off to an appropriate place for his ring name, Rome.

He has been booked as the sparring partner over the next ten days for Vincenzo Cantoore, the Italian cruiserweight champion who next week challenges Wayne Braithwaite of Ghana for the WBC world cruiserweight crown.
