Warren: Whyte-Chisora Bill is Far Inferior To Warrington-Frampton

By Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

FANS deserve a brilliant undercard to go with a top-class main event and that is what we are delivering on December 22.

It will be a Christmas cracker just three days before the big festive day that is for sure.

Josh Warrington’s IBF featherweight title defence against Carl Frampton is top of the tree that night.

But this week we have been busy putting the presents underneath.

Liam Williams has boldly stepped up to middleweight to take on Mark Heffron for the British title.

Nobody wanted to take on the challenge of facing Heffron for the coveted Lonsdale belt until the Welshman put his hand up.

And the pair are set for a battle to remember.

Rising heavyweight star Nathan Gorman moves up in class as he faces former world-title challenger Alex Leapai.

Gorman, who is trained by British ring king Ricky Hatton, has eyes on a fight with another big prospect in Daniel Dubois.

But he is not hanging around here as he takes on a man who has shared the ring with Wladimir Klitschko.

Martin Murray is after one more shot at a world title at middleweight so credit to him for taking on former champion Hassan N’Dam.

The St Helens man described it as veteran against veteran and that is what it is with the winner likely to go on to a world title shot and retirement the prize for the loser.

Belfast’s Michael Conlan continues his rise through the featherweight ranks when he takes on former Commonwealth champion Jason Cunningham.

All of that is certainly value for money whether you’re at Manchester Arena or tuning in on pay-per-view.

While down the road in London, boxing fans are being served up a far inferior product on the Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora card.

It’s a shame they have decided to run that event on the same night but there is only one card that delivers this Christmas and that is in Manchester.

It ain't that deep, bro. People prefer watching Heavyweights to midgets.

Warren's card is superior, but there's something about 2 heavyweights at war that makes compelling viewing. Whyte/Chisora 1 was an all-time classic heavyweight fight. Can't blame people for wanting to watch part 2.
