British Heavyweight sensation Johnny Fisher steps up to face Croatian knockout artist Alen Babic when he headlines his first-ever show at the Copper Box Arena in London on Saturday, July 6, live worldwide on DAZN.

Big punching Fisher, 25, is quickly establishing himself as one of the hottest young talents coming through the domestic scene with an explosive unbeaten record of 11 fights and 10 knockouts since making his professional debut against Matt Gordan back in February 2021.

Fisher capped a memorable 2023 by claiming his first professional belt on the Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius card at The O2 in August, taking out Harry Armstrong in seven rounds to win the vacant Southern Area Heavyweight Title.

The hugely popular prospect was named the 2023 Best Young Boxer of the Year by the prestigious Boxing Writers’ Club before kicking off a big 2024 in style by wiping out Dmytro Bezuz in one round on his US debut at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas in February. 
 
Zagreb’s hard-hitting Babic (12-1, 11 KOs) racked up a destructive ten-fight knockout streak before being taken the distance for the first time in his career against Adam Balski on the undercard of Joshua Buatsi’s domestic Light-Heavyweight clash with Craig Richards at The O2 in May 2022.

‘The Savage’ lost his unbeaten record when he was taken out by Poland’s Lukasz Rozanski in a challenge for the WBC Bridgerweight World Title at the G2A Arena in Rzeszow last year before returning to winning ways by halting Newcastle’s Steve Robinson in six rounds earlier this year.
 
‘The Romford Bull’ is enjoying a six-fight knockout streak of his own and a match-up against all-action Babic, who is mentored by former World Title challenger Dillian Whyte, is guaranteed to produce fireworks as both men target title action in the second half of 2024.

Reece Bellotti (18-5, 14 KOs) will defend his British and Commonwealth super featherweight titles against Levi Giles (15-1, 4 KOs).

Giles’ only defeat was a controversial loss to Michael Gomez Jnr last year in Manchester. Bellotti beat Liam Dillon in a British fight of the year contender in February to win the British title.

It’s a first title shot for John Hedges (9-0, 3 KOs) who steps up to face fellow unbeaten Lewis Oakford (5-0) for the Southern Area Cruiserweight title.

Maisey Rose Courtney (6-0) clashes with Jasmina Zapotoczna (6-1) over ten rounds. Zapotoczna lost a close decision to Shannon Ryan in February up at super flyweight and a win for MRC here should set up a European title fight with Chloe Watson.

Giorgio Visioli (3-0), Emmanuel Buttigieg (4-0), and Jimmy Sains (4-0) will all return to action. Visioli takes on Tampela Maharusi (10-6-4, 5 KOs) whilst Buttigieg faces Oliver Chudzik (3-0, 1 KO) in a battle of unbeatens.
