Groves' Withdrawal Leads To Venue Switch, York Hall
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Frank Warren’s 14th of September event, originally due to take place at Wembley Arena, has switched venues and will now take place at York Hall following the withdrawal of George Groves.

Former Olympian Billy Joe Saunders will now top the bill with a mandatory defence of his Commonwealth Middleweight Championship against unbeaten Australian Jarrod Fletcher, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
 
Saunders won his title in stunning style back in April with a devastating early stoppage against Tony Hill, before registering  an impressive points victory against former champion Bradley Pryce in his first defence in June. Saunders however, will have to put in a career best performance to overcome Australia’s mandatory challenger who also boasts an impressive amateur background that includes a win over Olympic Gold Medallist James DeGale.
 
The rest of the card for the 14th September remains unchanged. Chief support comes in the form of Penge Welterweight Bradley Skeete’s first pro title challenge, as he challenges Chas Symonds for his Southern Area Welterweight Championship. Whilst Enfield Super-Middleweight Frank Buglioni gets his sixth pro outing, as he looks to build on the impressive early form that has got many industry insiders earmarking him as one to watch.
 
Also in action are some of the London Area’s most exciting unbeaten prospects Mitchell Smith, Gary Corcoran, Billy Morgan and Ediz Hussain.
 
Tickets for the event will now be priced at £40 (unreserved) and £60 (reserved), and are available at the Frank Warren Promotions box office on 01992 505 550.
 
All tickets that have been already purchased for Wembley Arena can be exchanged by Frank Warren Promotions for the new venue.
