Crystal Palace National Sports Centre is the place to be as Isaac Chamberlain headlines a Friday night of boxing featuring some of the brightest stars from the Hennessy Sports promotional stable. Tickets are on sale.
The waiting is over for Brixton’s Isaac Chamberlain who is back under the bright lights tonight in front of his home fans, on a mission to secure a world title shot.
With a record of 13 wins and only one loss (against fellow Londoner and WBO cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie) Chamberlain made his long-awaited ring return earlier this year at Coventry’s Skydome. Chamberlain’s recovery from a shoulder injury that had kept him out of the ring for a year completed when he overcame Bolton’s Ben Thomas. Now the 27-year-old has the chance to register his 14th win as a professional, and progress his world credentials in the cruiserweight scene, with the IBF International cruiserweight title up for grabs.
Standing in the way of Chamberlain is former world title challenger Dilan Prašović. Hailing from Montenegro, Prašović has suffered only one defeat in a 16-fight pro career. That reverse coming in his last outing in September, when he suffered a knockout defeat challenging a certain Lawrence Okolie WBO world title belt.
Also on the bill in south London tonight are the McKenna brothers, a pair of siblings from Ireland who have caught the eye of many in their pro careers so far. Aaron McKenna will be looking to extend his record to 14-0 with a win in the capital when he challenges for a world youth title. Meanwhile Aaron’s brother Stevie, who put on a dominant display in the Midlands recently dispatching Richmond Djarbeng by knockout, has an eleventh straight win in the welterweight ranks in his sights.
🥊 Show starts at 7pm tbc. The main event on this Hennessy Sports promotion, Isaac Chamberlain vs Dilan Prašović, is expected in the ring around 10pm.
