James Tennyson has big plans for 2015 and the Belfast featherweight is looking to make a huge impact in the next 12 months starting at the Devenish Complex in Belfast on February 7.

‘The Baby Faced Assassin’ got back on track last year with wins against Ignac Kassai and Ian Bailey.

His performance against Bailey oozed class and a maturity beyond his years in a very polished performance against the experienced and tough Bailey.

And that win showed that Tennyson had put his one and only defeat to Pavels Senkovs in 2013 behind him.

Tennyson’s work last year was also disrupted by injury but now he knows that 2015 could get him among the mix for titles as he is ranked six in the British rankings.

“I just want to keep winning and see what happens. A couple of wins would put me right up there.

“I am hoping for a good year and I want to get it up and running at the Devenish on February 7,” he added.

And Tennyson says his victory against Bailey last year has boosted his self belief and confidence.

“I got loads of positive feedback after the Bailey fight and I was pleased with the result and the performance.

“It was great to get eight rounds under my belt and I stayed calm that night and picked my shouts.

“It was a good win as he an experienced campaigner. It was a great learning fight for me,” added Tennyson.

And the Belfast fighter says despite the two wins in 2014 he is glad to put last year behind him.

“I struggled with a injuries and a few other things last year. It wasn’t easy but I am back now and can’t wait for first bell in the Devenish.”

Sadly Dee Walsh and James Fryers have withdrawn from the bill through injury, so Paul Hyland and Daniel ‘Insane’ McShane will co-headline with Tennyson,

Undefeated fighters Tyrone McKenna and Ciaran McVarnock will both make their home debuts on the night.

Alan Donnellan, Darren Cruise, Michael McKinson will also make appearances.
