Matchroom Boxing is planning to return in July with four shows taking promoter Eddie Hearn’s backyard! Hearn told the Daily Mail that he will stage the events behind his mansion in Brentwood, Essex, England. The four-week run will begin with a female world title clash between Terri Harper and Natasha Jonas in mid-July and end with WBC interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte against Alexander Povetkin in the first or second Saturday of August.

  • Whyte vs Povetkin will be a decent fight to watch. Povetkin has been on the down slide since he is an aging fighter. However, Povetkin is a gritty fighter with that “move forward” style and does not back down.

  • I’m extremely disappointed that Gabriel Flores signed with the well-documented thug manager James Prince. When Floyd Mayweather Jr decided
    to leave the Prince stable, this strong-arm thug sent
    several of his goons who physically assaulted Floyd’s close friend Leonard Ellerbe and other members of Mayweather’s team.
