WBO Middleweight Champion Andy Lee finally puts his world title on the line against rival Billy Joe Saunders in the highly anticipated showdown that everyone has been waiting to see. Irishman Lee, one of the world’s most exciting fighters, won the title with a dramatic knockout of the previously undefeated Matt Korobov and must now face his mandatory challenger – Saunders.
The undefeated Englishman has claimed the records of four unbeaten fighters in a row in his last five fights, including a victory over Chris Eubank Jnr. and now aims to realise his dream by beating Lee to become world champion.
WBO Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan returns to action one final time this year as he makes the second defense of his title against a top challenger to be announced.
The Manchester hero is the new star of British boxing following his mesmerising victory over Diego Magdaleno this month when he destroyed the American challenger inside two rounds with a fearsome display of power-punching.
The new WBO Super Welterweight Champion Liam Smith makes his opening defense of the world title as he begins his reign.
Liverpool ace Smith demolished America John Thompson in seven round this month to lift the world title with some devastating punching and aims to show that he’s the top man in the 154lb division.
An action-packed card will also feature former IBF World Bantamweight Champion Paul Butler as continues on his comeback towards a second record-breaking world title at a lighter weight class, plus Lancashire super-lightweight hot-shot Jack Catterall, with both in championship title action.
With more title fights to be added and an undercard full of the best British prospects all in action, Boxing Day has come early for fight fans.
