MATCHROOM BEATS SANTA AND HIS REINDEER AND DELIVERS BOXING 'PRESSIES' EARLY

IF AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO HANG ON A CHRISTMAS TREE THE BOXING ‘PRESENTS’ FEATURED ON THE DECEMBER 14th MATCHROOM PROMOTION AT THE EXCEL CENTRE , IT WOULD NEED A VERSION OF THE ANNUAL ...

... ICONIC CHRISTMAS TREE  IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE, CENTRAL LONDON. OUTSTANDING PROSPECT. ANTHONY JOSHUA WAS DUE TO APEAR BUT HE HAS SUFFERED A SHOULDER INJURY AND IS UNFIT.

Nevertheless, 15 contests are scheduled on the SKY televised promotion and include: Martin Murray in a second time around bout against Sergey Khomitsky over 10-rounds. This fight was scheduled to take place in Manchester last month (November) but was cancelled due to Martin being hit by a virus infection.

 Kevin Mitchell and Italian Brunet Zamo will compete for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental title; Lee Purdy will seek to relieve European welterweight champion Leonard Nundu of his title; Anthony Ogogo will be matched against a selected opponent - and there is more!

Promoter Eddie Hearn said, "We've put together a bumper Christmas bill, stacked with some of the best talent in Britain with big title fights for Mitchell and Purdy, Olympic hero Anthony Ogogo; 2014 world title candidate in McDonnell and many, many more, I'm expecting a fantastic night to bring 2013 to a close in style."

The big heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua was set to appear with joint Olympic medallist Anthony Ogogo but a shoulder injury has meant a three months break for the talented Joshua.

The card will feature  Kevin Mitchell facing Italian Brunet Zamora for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental title as the top of the bill event and Lee Purdy will challenge European welterweight champion Leonard Bundu, in chief support.

Jamie McDonnell will return to action just three weeks after his winning bout in Manchester, while the British light-middle championship will be contested by Erick Ochieng and Liam Smith. Tony Owen will defend his Southern area light-welterweight title against fellow Carshalton resident Ricky Boylan and Ryan 'Crash Bang' Taylor meets Floyd Moore for the vacant Southern Area lightweight title. 

Danny Connor lost to Owen in their October meeting for the title, and he is in an eliminator for the English Light Welterweight belt against Tyler Goodjohn.

Erick Ochieng is back in action after his battle with Liam Smith for the British light middleweight title, moving down to welterweight to face Welshman Dale Evans; unbeaten Super Flyweight Kal Yafai has his 10th contest as a pro'; unbeaten lightweight prospect Martin J Ward returns to competitive action;, Essex light-welterweight John Wayne Hibbert seeks to add to his British Masters triumph and cruiserweight duo Wadi Camacho and Ben Ileyemi complete the line-up

Promoter Eddie Hearn added, "I'm delighted to add  Anthony Ogogo and Kal to our bumper Christmas bill at the ExCeL London.

"We've put together a bill stacked with some of the best talent in Britain with big title fights for Mitchell and Purdy, the Olympic hero Anthony Ogogo in action, a 2014 world title candidate in McDonnell and many, many more, I'm expecting a fantastic night to bring 2013 to a close in style." ~
