Nathan Heaney record

18-0-1 (6 KOs)

Nathan Heaney made his debut in 2017 and picked up six victories against fighters with losing records before stepping up in class to take on the 11-2 Tom Stokes for the Midlands Arena middleweight title, winning on points.

In 2020 he landed the vacant IBO continental middleweight title by outpointing Malta’s Christian Schembri in a hometown fight in Stoke, and the following year he recorded three successive stoppage wins, overcoming Sladan Janjanin in the final one of those bouts to land the IBO international belt with a seventh round TKO.

Heaney has experienced a rematch before as in September 2022 he was awarded a technical decision win over Jack Flatley after their bout had to be stopped in the fifth round.

Hitman faced Flatley again in March of the following year and removed any questions hanging over his previous win with a unanimous decision victory.

The 35-year-old became British champion with a majority decision victory over Denzel Bentley in November 2023 and his first defence was his first bout with Pauls.

Brad Pauls' record

18-1-1 (10 KOs)

Brad Pauls made his debut in 2015 and he started his career with three stoppage victories, all of which came inside the first two rounds.

In 2019, Pauls became the Southern Area middleweight champion with a third round TKO win over Darren Codona and he followed that up by stopping the 6-1 Robbie Chapman in the seventh.

A split decision win over Ryan Kelly in 2022 set Pauls on his way for a shot at the English title as he took on Tyler Denny in February of last year. The Newquay Bomb suffered the first, and so far only, defeat of his career in that bout as Denny claimed a unanimous decision win.

However, the 31-year-old would go on to become the English champion with a TKO win over the previously unbeaten Mitchell Frearson when challenging for the vacant belt. 

Pauls’ bout with Frearson was his last appearance before his first fight with Heaney.
