Event Details

Matchroom Promotions return to The O2 for a night of boxing with a distinctly heavyweight flavour.  Doors open at 4.30pm ahead of the first contest at 5.30pm and tickets are available.

A big night of boxing at The O2 is headlined by a double-bill of heavyweight action.  Top of the bill is Dave Allen versus former WBA world champion Lucas Brown.

Allen, aka ‘White Rhino’ is in the form of his life after notching successive stoppage wins over Nick Webb, Samir Nebo and Ariel Esteban Bracamonte in the second half of 2018.  The Doncaster fans’ favourite rich vein of form began with a “life-changing” fourth round knockout win against Webb at The O2 in July and he hopes to make it three KO’s from three fights at the Greenwich venue next month.

Browne returns to the scene of his sole career loss to Dillian Whyte determined to redeem himself with a big knockout win over cult hero Allen.  Since that loss the 28-1 Australian, who’s career-best win came against Ruslan Chagaev in 2016, has bounced back with three wins and he believes another victory on April 20 will fire his name back into the World mix.

Finchley bad boy Derek Chisora returns to the ring against Senad Gashi after his FOTY contender with Dillian Whyte in December.  Former world title challenger Chisora came sensationally close to beating Whyte in that encounter going down in the eleventh round of an exhilarating and brutal fight when ahead of on two of the judges’ scorecards only to be caught by a devastating left hook.  Having recently teamed up with highly-respected trainer Dave Coldwell, Chisora is feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready to take on any challenges in 2019.

Also on tonight’s bill are a quartet of Matchroom Promotions’ unbeaten rising stars Joe Cordina, Josh Kelly, Conor Benn and Shannon Courtenay.  Cordina takes on Andy Townend for the British lightweight title while Kelly is pitted against Poland’s Przemyslaw Runowski for the WBA International belt.  Meanwhile welterweight Conor Benn looks to make it 14 straight wins and bantamweight Shannon Courtenay aims to follow up her recent debut in the professional ranks at the Copper Box Arena.

Doors open at 4.30pm, first contest at 5.30pm.
