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."
