Frank Warren announces UK boxing is back
Queensberry Promotions top brass Frank Warren took to social media to announce official fights to take place in the United Kingdom and the card so far is still being built.
Boxing has been making a comeback in the United States under the ESPN banner. Top Rank promotions has put together fight cards bringing some life into the sport. Moreover, it seems that Queensbury is looking to do the same across the pond in the UK.
Furthermore, fighters are well-rested and eager to return to throwing hands, and with a set date, British boxing fans can watch fights at there favorite pub again.
The card so far is short, but it does feature two important fights when it comes to the rankings and the next career move.
BATTLE OF THE UNDEFEATEDS
The Commonwealth/BBBofC Super Bantamweight titlist Brad “The Blade” Foster (12-0-2, 5KO) will be defending both belts
against fellow countryman James Beech Jr (12-0, 2ko).
The Blade is hoping to continue his winning ways following a victory, looking to explore fighting the world stage. Beech isn’t well-known, so a victory would put him on the map against the British fans. Also featured on the card will be 21-year-old WBO European Junior Middleweight titlist Hamzah Sheeraz (10-0, 6ko), making his first defense of the title against former BBBofC Scottish titlist Paul Kean (12-1, 1ko).
This card will take place for July 10, 2020, at the BT Sports Studio, Stratford, London. If everything goes according to plan, UK boxing fans will be busy that weekend.
