Copper Box Arena, London
April 30th 2016
Walsh brothers Ryan Walsh and Liam Walsh will both defend their British titles on the same night at Copper Box Arena in London on April 30th. Ryan is the current British Featherweight Champion and his twin brother Liam holds the British Super-featherweight Title.
Ryan Walsh is defending his title against James Tennyson (16-1-0) aged 22 from Belfast. Tennyson is less experienced and currently unproven at Ryan’s level, but his reputation for stopping opponents makes him dangerous.
Liam Walsh faces opponent Troy James (18-2-1) aged 32 from Coventry. Liam is returning from shoulder injury unbeaten in 19 bouts, 13 by way of stoppage.
Headlining the event is WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders who makes the first defence of his title against “Mad” Max Bursak. The event also features an exciting card including the Vacant European Cruiserweight title contest between Ovill McKenzie and Dmytro Kucher and Anthony Nelson defends his Commonwealth Super-flyweight Championship against Jamie Conlon.
The undercard features undefeated heavyweight sensation Hughie Fury, Erith super-bantamweight Lewis Pettitt, Chingford super-featherweight Boy Jones Jr., Indian middleweight sensation Vijender Singh, Chelmsford super-middleweight Billy Long, West Ham super-welterweight Sammy McNess, Sidcup super-featherweight D.P Carr, West Ham super-lightweight Ben Smith, Hornchurch super-lightweight Sanjeev Sahota, Nantwich heavyweight Nathan Gorman and Enfield super-middleweight Barney Joe Jones.
