Undefeated Ellesmere Port ace Paul Butler is back in action following his fantastic win over Stuart Hall to claim the IBF World Bantamweight title in June. After vacating the title to pursue an historic second world title in a lighter weight division, Butler will feature in a major championship contest with the challenger to be announced.
Big-hitting Liam Smith makes the third and crucial defence of his British Light-Middleweight title against bitter rival Navid Mansouri as he looks to make the prized Lonsdale belt his own property in front of his home fans.
All-action Derry Mathews heads straight back into title action when he challenges for the Vacant WBA Intercontinental Lightweight Championship against a challenger to be announced.
Flyweight star Kevin Satchell has a dream opportunity to be crowned champion of Europe in front of his own fans when he takes on the tough reigning champion Valery Yanchy. Unbeaten Satchell, who also holds the British and Commonwealth titles, aims to dethrone Yanchy in only his 13th pro fight to hold all three belts.
Newly crowned British Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan, from Manchester, makes the first defence of the title as he looks to clean up domestically before moving onto world hounours.
Undefeated middleweight talent Chris Eubank Jnr., son of the British great, will feature in an eight-rounder as he builds towards his first pro title; plus top Liverpool light-welterweight prospect Tom Stalker, the 2012 Team GB Olympic Captain, also fights over eight rounds.
A quality packed undercard features unbeaten prospects: Chorley light-welterweight Jack Catterall, hot off his stunning second round KO win over rival Nathan Brough, in an eight-round contest; Manchester featherweight Michael Gomez Jnr. follows up on his explosive pro-debut last month in a four-round contest; Ellesmere Port lightweight Matty Fagan in a six-round contest; plus the professional debuts of Merseyside amateur stars Michael Joynson and Mason Cartright.
Sept 20th NBC Sports Fight Night at Foxwoods
Tickets are on sale now for the NABF Cruiserweight Title fight between Thabiso “The Rock” Mchunu (16-1, 11 KOs) and Garrett “The Ultimate Warrior” Wilson (13-7-1, 7 KOs) September 20, 2014 at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The fight will be broadcast as the main event on a special afternoon edition of NBC Fight Night at 3:00 PM ET/12:00 PM PT. Tickets are on sale now through Foxwoods.com and will go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices are $100, $75 and $40. Doors open at 12:00 PM.
Mchunu, 26, the southpaw from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa is making his third appearance on Fight Night. In his last appearance he defeated Olanrewaju “God’s Power” Durodola via unanimous decision in ten rounds at Resorts International Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ on January 24, 2014. In his Fight Night and US debut he upset “Fast” Eddie Chambers via another ten round unanimous decision victory at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT on August 3, 2013.
Wilson, 32, is from the fighting city of Philadelphia, PA. He made his Fight Night debut on a special afternoon edition of NBC Fight Night on November 16, 2013 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY against Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov. Wilson was a last minute replacement for Tomasz “Goral” Adamek who fell ill days before the fight. Wilson took the fight on less than 48 hours’ notice and agreed to fight at heavyweight despite being a cruiserweight. He ultimately lost to Glazkov via a ten-round unanimous decision but he gained the respect of the boxing community for stepping up at the last minute and taking such a big fight on national broadcast television.
“The Rock” and “The Ultimate Warrior” were scheduled to face each other in January of this year but Wilson pulled out due to an injured Achilles tendon. Mchunu went on to defeat Durodola instead but fans are excited that the fight is finally scheduled to take place next month at Foxwoods. Kathy Duva, Main Events’ CEO said, “This is our first time back at Foxwoods in over a decade. I’m happy that we could bring them such an important show that will be seen by millions on national broadcast television and I look forward to working together again in the future.”
