Anthony Fowler To Box On Kell Brook-Michael Zerafa

By Elliot Foster

Anthony Fowler will be back in the ring next month.

The super-welterweight will vie for his first title on a card in Sheffield.

Fowler, it has been revealed, will box on December 8 at the FlyDSA Arena, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

He will fight a foe to be confirmed for a belt to be confirmed, as part of the supporting cast to Kell Brook’s WBA welterweight title eliminator against Michael Zerafa.

The card will feature the Commonwealth Games gold medallist’s fellow Team GB 2016 Olympian Qais Ashfaq as well as WBA International and Commonwealth welterweight titlist Josh Kelly in against former WBA ‘regular’ world champion David Avanesyan.

David Allen and Gary O’Sullivan have both been pulled from the card, with the latter fighting the night before in Dublin, but Jono Carroll will take on Guillaume Frenois in an official final eliminator for Tevin Farmer’s IBF super-featherweight world title and there is action for Stefy Bull-managed duo Terri Harper and Anthony Tomlinson.

JOSH WARRINGTON INSISTS that nobody should be fooled by the pleasantries exchanged by himself and Carl Frampton on the recent media tour because he is fully prepared to break the pain barrier in order to defend his world title and become No.1 at Christmas.

The three-city whistle-stop promotional trip to highlight the IBF world featherweight title defence between holder Warrington and two-weight world champion Frampton was notable for the respectful rhetoric between the two fighters.

The build-up to Warrington's title winning encounter against then champion Lee Selby in May was a spikey affair as a result of a feud that had developed between the pair from when a fight was originally mooted.

The just turned 28-year-old Leeds man states that the niceties will not stand the test of time when the two reach the business end of their association.

"Listen, don't get it twisted, we are going in there to hurt each other and I am willing to die to defend my belt because it means that much to me," said the 27-0 champion, who went on to outline his intentions post-Frampton.

"I want to give it all to take it home with me again and that is what I'm going to do.

"This is why we have taken the fight so soon, because we beat Carl and I want to go on and unify the division.
"I intend to spend Christmas at the top of the rankings, the No.1 featherweight in the country. It will be a nice little Christmas present."
