Boxxer June Shows

EverythingBoxing has been told that Boxxer will be staging back-to-back shows in June on the 4th and 11th due to the UEFA Nations League on Sky Sports. England will be playing on the 4th and the 11th and is the perfect lead-in to the boxing to maximize viewing numbers.

The June 11th Boxxer show will take place at the OVO Arena, Wembley. According to the BBBofC Circular, River Wilson-Bent will rematch Tyler Denny for the English Middleweight Title on the undercard.

DAZN UK Sporting Rights

According to a report from Sporting Business, FITE TV and DAZN were the two front-runners for La Liga rights in the UK. Recently FITE went into exclusive negotiations to secure La Liga rights.

After missing out on these football rights in the UK, ‘DAZN is now understood to have turned its attention toward acquiring UK rights to the UFC. UFC rights are currently held by BT in a four-year deal, from 2019 to 2022″

Buatsi Richards Undercard

The Sole undercard fight announced for the Buatsi Richards card four weeks away is Unified WBC/IBF Super Lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron’s (15-0) voluntary defence of her titles against Argentina’s two-weight world champion Victoria Bustsos (23-6).

Eddie Hearn Via IFL TV last week, revealed that London’s Ellie Scotney (4-0) would feature on that card against former IBF Bantamweight champion Mariá Cecilia Román who lost her title to Ebanie Bridges in March. This is another strong step-up for Scotney after a closely contested victory over Jorgelina Guanini in February who went onto win a shut-out against Stevi Levy in April.

Also on this card, Unbeaten Heavyweight Croatia’s Alen Babic (10-0, 10 KO’s) will move down to Bridgerweight to challenge Poland’s Adam Balski (16-1) for the WBC Silver Bridgerweight Title. Balski’s sole defeat comes to top 10 cruiserweights Mateusz Masternak and this marks a notable step-up in competition for the exciting Babic.
