Mickey O'Rourke wants to put Feltham on the map after winning his professional boxing debut last weekend.
The former Dale Youth amateur won every one of the four rounds against seasoned pro Andy Harris, who was fighting his 25 bout, taking the honours 40-36 at the Camden Centre.
The 25 year old lightweight is now being lined up for a second showdown at York Hall on March 21, and there is also talk of an undercard slot at a future O2 Arena show.
Proud mum Wendy O'Rourke said: “We can't get over the support Mickey had, we took 225 fans to the fight – you would have thought he was a world champion rather than someone making his pro debut.
“Mickey wants to help put Feltham on the map and have people talking about his home town in a positive light for a change rather than all the negative publicity it usually gets.
“Mickey was hitting around the body from the first round, and his opponents said he hadn't held Mickey it would have been all over sooner. He's definitely read for 10 rounds.”
O'Rourke signed a three-year pro contract with East London-based manager and trainer Johnny Eames last year having impressed during a trial period.”
