As Willie Monroe Jr. challenges WBO middleweight belt-holder, Billy Joe Saunders, at the Copper Box Arena in England, American boxing fans will have a chance to see this match-up live on Saturday.
Matt Rowland of Banner Promotions advised BoxingScene.com - "We're going to be streaming the fight live on the Banner Promotions Youtube page and we're going to have the co-feature the the main event."
According to Rowland, this broadcast will start at approximately 5:30 pm(ET). Back in April as Petr Petrov faced WBO lightweight champion, Terry Flanagan in the U.K., Banner Promotions cut a deal to have this fight broadcast on Twitter.
"But with college football and everything else going on we wanted to use Youtube," explained Rowland. "We think we can reach more people."

And, some of the up-and-coming prospects in the Frank Warren stable will see action, including Welling Super-Featherweight Archie Sharp; Ilford Super-Bantamweight Lucien Reid; Fulham Super-Middleweight Zak Chelli and Erith Flyweight Jake Pettit feature. Ilford Welterweight Hamza Sheeraz, Tamworth Light-Heavyweight Ryan Hatton and Ilford Super-Middleweight Umar Sadiq all make their highly-anticipated pro debuts.
