Tony Bellew will face Isaac ‘Golden Boy’ Chilemba in an official final eliminator for the WBC light heavyweight World title in Betfair’s ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’ at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on March 30, live on Sky Sports – with the winner setting up a potential clash with ‘Bad’ Chad Dawson.
Anthony Crolla could meet Derry Mathews in the final of the Betfair Prizefighter Lightweights II at the Liverpool Olympia on Saturday night (October 6) live on Sky Sports.
Mathews ripped the British title from Crolla in Oldham in April and the draw for Saturday’s action threw up the chance for revenge for the Manchester man as the pair landed in separate halves of the draw.
Anthony Ogogo became the seventh British boxer to secure London 2012 selection after beating Belarusian Vitali Bandarenka 14-7 in his semi-final at the European boxing qualifiers on Friday.
Middleweight Ogogo, a silver medallist at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, has only just returned to the ring after five months out following shoulder surgery, an injury he blamed for his failure to qualify at the first attempt last year.
