Robbie Davies Jr-Willie Limond, Jan 21 In Preston, Live On ITV

The line-up for ITV4's Big Fight Live event has been announced ahead of the boxing action taking place early in 2017.

On Saturday 21 January, the channel will show a line up of the brightest and best British boxing talent with KO specialist Robbie Davies set to light up the event as he faces the toughest challenge of his career on February 21st against former world title challenger Willie Limond at Preston Guild Hall.

Liverpudlian super lightweight prospect Davies, son of former Olympian Robbie Senior, is stirring up boxing scene in his hometown after impressively stopping 10 of his 14 straight victories.

But this is easily his biggest test as Limond has shared the ring with the likes of Erik Morales, Amir Khan, Alex Arthur and Anthony Crolla. The pair meet for the WBA continental title in what promises to be a rip-roaring contest with Davies regarded as having real star quality.

Chief support will be a Lancashire hotpot between middleweights Jack Arnfield and Mick Hall. The two local rivals, Arnfield from Blackpool, Hall from Preston, fought a pulsating 'Prizefighter' contest over three rounds in February 2015, but this time it will be the real thing over the extended distance. Arnfield edged it by a split decision, but must now take on Hall again, this time in front of the latter's huge fan base.

Also on the bill is Belfast’s Anthony Cacace, who has won all his 15 fights at super featherweight since turning pro in 2012 and will face an opponent soon to be named.

This event will precede ITV Box Office's exclusive live coverage of the IBO World Super Middleweight Title bout between Chris Eubank Jnr, Britain’s number one middleweight, and Renold Quinlan, the title holder. The promoter is Poxon Sports in association with Unity Motion.
