Chalmers will be one of the many talented fighters who command huge support in the pressure of his debut handled with, it is an ideal opportunity for Chalmers to produce a calculated performance now he is accustomed to fight nights in professional boxing. Standing in the way of his fairy-tale win is “Rocky” Ryan Broten (0-1).

"I kept my head and remained calm, but i know what level I can box at, and this huge Newcastle card is my chance to show my progression in the ring."

“The fans can expect me to come into this calculated yet ready-to-end things when the opportunity presents itself. I've never been the fighter to let things go the distance, and if I can get a knockout win in Newcastle then both me and the fans will be happy people.”

"Newcastle is where I made my name, it's the place that moulded me into who I am. I know the people, I’m one of the people, and the fans are going to blow the rough off the place."
