Jake Ball vs. Craig Richards, Felix Cash vs. Rasheed Abolaji on 2/2

By Elliot Foster

Jake Ball and Craig Richards will finally square off in the new year.

The pair have been set to meet in a bitter light-heavyweight showdown for a while.

But two failed meetings, including one at short notice back in October due to injury to the WBA International champion, have resulted in the pair trading insults.

The fight, for Ball’s aforementioned title, will take place on February 2, 2019, at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

Ted Cheeseman, the current British super-welterweight champion, will look to add the European belt to his collection when he challenges Spain’s Sergio Garcia for the crown on the card.

Felix Cash won his first professional title in October and now he gets the chance to add a second when he takes on Nigeria’s Abolaji Rasheed for the vacant Commonwealth middleweight title, with the Wokingham man determined to make up for lost time.
Undefeated British and Commonwealth cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie returns to action after wrestling the Lonsdale belt from Matty Askin at Wembley Stadium back in September, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, as part of the supporting cast to Anthony Joshua’s defence of the WBA Super, IBF, IBO and WBO world heavyweight titles against Alexander Povetkin by seventh-round stoppage.

And the Hackney powerhouse is aiming to add more belts to his collection in 2019.

Further additions to the card will be revealed in due course.

Glad to see Craig Richards getting an opportunity, decent fighter, he’ll beat Ball handily

[QUOTE=Mick Higgs;19382578]The only belt that Okolie can improve with would be the EBU title. However I'd like to see him defend his British & Commonwealth titles a few times before going for it.[/QUOTE] I think He should fight Tommy McCarthy…
