Eubank Jr., Smith, Butler Top Loaded 10/25 Liverpool Bill

Promoter Frank Warren has assembled an all-star line up and returns to the Liverpool Echo Arena with a blockbuster multi-title show on Saturday 25th October featuring some of the best talent in British boxing, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).

Undefeated Ellesmere Port ace Paul Butler is back in action following his fantastic win over Stuart Hall to claim the IBF World Bantamweight title in June.  Butler aims to become the first British fighter in over a century - since the great Bob Fitzsimmons - to win a second world title in a lighter division.  Butler vacated the IBF crown shortly after his win and moved back to the super-flyweight division as he builds towards a second world title shot and will now feature in a major championship contest with the challenger to be announced.

Big-hitting Liam Smith makes the third and crucial defence of his British Light-Middleweight title against Navid Mansouri as he looks to make the prized Lonsdale belt his own property in front of his home fans.  Fighting out of Liverpool’s famous Smith family, the 26-year-old, who also holds the Commonwealth title, has looked sensational since winning the British title against Erick Ochieng last September, halting Mark Thompson and Jason Welborn in back-to-back title defences.  Mansouri, was due to face Smith last time out in Manchester, but withdrew injured.  

One of Liverpool’s favourite fighting sons, all-action Derry Mathews, heads straight back into title action when he challenges for the Vacant WBA International Lightweight Championship.  Mathews dethroned British champion Martin Gethin to take the Lonsdale belt in May, but was unable to defend it against Terry Flanagan last month in Manchester because of a perforated ear drum and vacated the belt.  The 30-year-old, who is a fight fans favourite because of his love of a war in the ring, will face a challenger to be announced. 

Newly crowned British Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan stopped former champion Gethin inside seven rounds to claim the Lonsdale belt and now opens his account when he makes the first defence of the title.  The Manchester hot-shot, now undefeated in 25 fights, is one of the most exciting fighters in Britain with his all-action style.  

Undefeated middleweight talent Chris Eubank Jnr., son of the British great, will feature in an eight-rounder as he builds towards his first pro title; plus top Liverpool light-welterweight prospect Tom Stalker, the 2012 Great Britain Olympic Boxing team captain, also fights over eight rounds.

Flyweight star Kevin Satchell has a dream opportunity to be crowned champion of Europe in front of his own fans when he takes on the tough reigning champion Valery Yanchy.  Unbeaten Satchell, who also holds the British and Commonwealth titles, aims to dethrone Yanchy in only his 13th pro fight to hold all three belts.

A quality packed undercard features unbeaten porspects: Chorley light-welterweight Jack Catterall, hot off his stunning second round KO win over rival Nathan Brough, in an eight-round contest; Manchester featherweight Michael Gomez Jnr. follows up on his explosive pro-debut last month in a four-round contest; Ellesmere Port lightweight Matty Fagan in a six-round contest; plus the professional debuts of Merseyside amateur starsMichael Joynson and Mason Cartright.

Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 13th August at midday, from the Liverpool Echo Arena Box office 0844 8000 400 and www.echoarena.com
