So once again into the breech we go with a couple of bills tonight that split the Atlantic and have some decent fights but lack the headliners of the last few weeks. It is interesting that after a very busy August which is traditionally the break time for boxing, we have entered quite a quiet period for the sport.
In the UK, Frank Warren is out of the studio at BT in Stratford and back at York Hall with light heavyweight Anthony Yarde taking on Dec Spelman in a fairly decent fight thatshall shake off the rust forYarde. Then there is the IBF European title fight at middleweight with Mark Heffron in against Denzel Bentley and then the welterweight version on the line between Cedrick Peynaud and Ekow Essuman. Heffron ismuch more experienced than the unbeaten Bentley but this could be a fight of the year contender if it takes fire whilst Peynaud is known to us due to being that pesky guy that Conor Benn struggled against and had to go back and beat him; Essuman, the English champ should be Euro champ by the end of tonight.
Over in the Bubble in Las Vegas, Bob Arum is presenting us with the WBC continental Americas and WBA NABO welterweight contest between Egidijus Kavaliauskas and Mikeal Zewski withKavaliauskas the most likely… but then again…
On Sunday the 13th of September, tomorrow night, we have 5 fights in Hanger 34, Liverpool.
Saturday 19th September
BIBA bring it with 7 fights available online and broadcast from Aberdeen.
