When Daniel Levy envisioned Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the NFL’s multi-purpose venue, a new stage for British boxing, and, of course, the home of the eponymous football team, he probably envisioned a “blue moon” reverberation. did not. That rafter.
Manchester City’s national anthem will probably be greeted in full by the loud supporters of the Hatton clan. This time around, Anthony Joshua will be attending to see Ricky’s son Campbell on the undercard of the title defense against Oleksandr Usyk.
Even if AJ’s three belts are thrown away, September 25th will be an important night for British boxing.
Lawrence O’Corey wins his WBO cruiserweight title Dylan Prashovic And Callum Smith finally returned to Lenin Castillo ten months after his humble defeat to Canelo. In terms of these opportunities, Hatton is just a small fly.
With Christopher Ausley Khasan Baysangurov Start the night by competing for the WBA Intercontinental Belt before Usyk’s compatriots Maxim Prodan takes on Albanian Florian Marc..
O’Cally vs Prashovic
The story of O’Cally is now familiar, but it’s still not so unobtrusive. During the blockade, the rise of former McDonald’s workers had a new dimension. He is now a rapper and counts vegan food as one of the secrets to his journey to the top.
As a 19-stone clinically obese teenager, he wasn’t uncertain that knee pain was caused by his weight. Growing up in a hackney, he was also the target of curse from school bullies.
After that, London 2012 was held. O’Corey was part of a generation inspired by Joshua’s Olympic gold medal and took only four years to train enough to compete in his own tournament in Rio.
Eddie Hearn has always done his best to place him in the ripples of Joshua’s starlight. O’Cally’s first professional fight was the undercard of Anthony Crolla, and now Hahn is effectively selling his fight for him.
It leaves him focused on selling books and puts his inspiring journey on posterity. His approach to life is systematic. Perhaps explained by chess preference as a young man who admits that he has always been the last choice for more active sports in physical education.
Now that it’s all behind him, “Source” has long felt like the king of the world, but he also has a belt to prove it, originally to be done in the undercard. Won the WBO Cruiserweight title against the battle Kushistov Growakki Last year, the match between Joshua and Kubrat Pulev arrived at Wembley Arena.
Even after Derek Chisora signed up for 258 Management as part of Joshua’s management team, which he attended last week, O’Corey cannot be blamed for its great success.
Smith vs Castillo
There is Canelo, then there is the rest. It was a reality check that seems to have taken his steps since Smith lost the fight between his WBA and WBC super middleweight titles due to a unanimous decision.
Smith wanted the advantage of his considerable size Might be so He has an advantage over the Mexicans, but this time only an inch over Lenin Castillo (21-3-1).
The 2008 Olympic athletes haven’t had much of an impact on the world stage. Almost 15 years ago, he won a gold medal at the Cheo Aponte Cup and a bronze medal at the 2009 Americas Championships. But Castillo was knocked out. 16 out of his 25 opponents.
Smith struggled to break Canelo’s defenses, which should be a good opportunity for him to bounce back.
Hatton vs Dura
Eddie Hearn, thanks to his name, has made a reservation about the inevitable hype surrounding Hatton. The 20-year-old isn’t crazy about the perfect start to his professional career.
Despite winning all of his first three battles, he didn’t have much chance to lose. It all started against Jesus Lewis when he won every round.
Hatton believes the public hasn’t seen his technical best yet, but the super-featherweight, who last defeated Poland’s Yakbraskowski in July, is under his belt. Play against the much more experienced Izandura in 10 battles so far.
