At Brentwood, England:
Jamie Arthur vs. Jason Booth, 12 rounds, for Arthur's Commonwealth junior featherweight title
David Price vs. Osborne Machimana, 10 rounds, heavyweights
Ashley Sexton vs. Martin Power, 10 rounds, junior bantamweights
On paper, the main event looks like a solid matchup between two good domestic level U.K. fighters who usually give it their all. Booth lost a closer than expected fight to Steve Molitor in a title shot his last time out, while Arthur revived his seemingly flagging career with a win over Kris Hughes, garnering him the Commonwealth title at super bantamweight. As it is, both the Commonwealth and British titles are on the line for this one.
David Price was a 2008 Olympian at super heavyweigh and won the bronze medal for the UK. Machimana is a step up in class for Price - he's the reigning South African heavyweight titlist, and ended the career of Corrie Sanders with a 1st round KO.
