Stoke Boxer Nathan ‘The Hitman’ Heaney Previews His Upcoming Fight


Stoke-on-Trent’s very own boxing champion – Nathan ‘The Hitman’ Heaney – faces what he admits will be the biggest fight of his career to date on Saturday when he takes on Ashton-under-Lyne fighter Ryan Oliver at the Copper Box Arena.
