TONY CONQUEST is looking to make it two wins as a pro when he boxes on the Hayemaker Promotion at York Hall on Sunday afternoon against experienced midlander Hastings Rasani.
Conquest, who who is trained by Jason Rowland at Canning Town's Ultrachem TKO Gym, became national number three cruiserweight during his amateur campaign at Dagenham BC.
He won his pro debut three weeks ago at the Bethnal Green venue, when he outpointed Bobby Scott.
"I was pleased with my performance on the night, but I know I can improve and it will be a good test against Rasani," said Conquest.
