Tyson Fury vs. Sefer Seferi: Undercard Update

By Elliot Foster

SAM MAXWELL will be back in the ring in a few weeks’ time.

The undefeated Commonwealth Games gold medallist, 29, has seven victories on his unblemished ledger to date.

And Maxwell will be looking to add to his record on June 9, exclusively live on BT Sport, when he takes on Kane Baker at Manchester Arena.


He will feature against the 27-year-old Birmingham man on the undercard of Terry Flanagan’s vacant WBO super-lightweight title showdown against Maurice Hooker and Tyson Fury’s comeback against Sefer Seferi.

Baker has a winning record of 7-3, is 27 and has only been stopped once in his three defeats.

Conor Benn, the son of Nigel, was the man to stop Baker, who has also been in with Gary Cully and Sanjeev Singh Sahota.

Maxwell will be joined on the bill by fellow Liverpool-based fighters Jack McGann, James Metcalf and Alex Dickinson.

McGann faces Dwain Grant on his boxing debut over six rounds after a successful campaign in mixed martial arts, while ‘Kid Shamrock’ Metcalf face Spain’s Jorge Fortea for the vacant WBC International super-welterweight crown.

Dickinson, meanwhile, will be looking to add to his unbeaten record when he takes on David Howe.

The heavyweight, 31, is currently 5-0 with three early and was last in action at the SSE Arena in Belfast last month.

That outing, on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s vacant WBO interim featherweight title win over Nonito Donaire, lasted just 68 seconds against Lee Carter.

And he will be looking to do a similar job on the 37-year-old Sheffield man Howe, who has lost his last three by stoppage, when the pair square off over four rounds.

Meanwhile, Nathan Gorman faces Sean Turner in a competitive heavyweight clash, Jordan Thompson will see action in the cruiserweight division and Lyndon Arthur will fight former Commonwealth super-middleweight title challenger Charles Adamu in a big step up in the light-heavyweight division.

Zelfa Barrett features, with his foe to be confirmed, while Jack Massey is set to meet Ian Tims, there is a senior ABA final rematch from 2015 as Jack Flatley and Troy Williamson do battle over the eight-round distance and Mark Heffron faces Andrew Robinson for the vacant WBC International Silver middleweight belt.

What kind of CRUEL parents would name their kid with a first name that is the same as the last name??? Probably the same type of cruel parents that named their son Mario Barrios.
