Frazer Clarke returns to Sky Sports Box Office bumper bill | Chris Kongo collides with Ekow Essuman on Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith undercard
Olympic bronze medalist Frazer Clarke returns to action on January 21, with Chris Kongo challenging Ekow Essuman for the British and Commonwealth welterweight titles also on the Chris Eubank Jr v Liam Smith undercard.
Clarke, the boxing captain for the British team at the Tokyo Olympics, is another valuable addition to the big bill at Manchester’s AO Arena.
The heavyweight sensation is looking to continue his professional rise in the show which sees Joseph Parker and Richard Riakporhe in action as well as the Eubank Jr vs Smith grudge match, live on Sky Sports ticket office.
The bronze medal-winning hero from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is eager to climb the ranks of the heavyweight rankings this year and will return to the scene of his last victory.
An opponent will be named in due course but Clarke (4-0, 3 KOs) will be keen to remind the division of its incredible power as he did last November when he outclassed Kamil Sokowlski in six rounds.
Essuman will defend his British and Commonwealth welterweight titles against Kongo in a scintillating addition to the undercard on Saturday, January 21.
“The Engine” produced a complete and unanimous points victory over Samuel Antwi of BOXXER at the same venue last September to retain his titles and protect his no-fault record (18-0, 7 KOs).
But he will no doubt face a tough test in the form of ‘2 Slick’ Kongo in what promises to be a title clash.
Kongo claimed the vacant WBC International Silver welterweight crown when he defeated Sebastian Formella last June in London. He will be hungry to start the new year in style by putting the first dent in Essuman’s burgeoning resume and winning two prestigious titles.
Another explosive heavyweight prospect is also confirmed for Jan. 21 in Matty Harris. The hard-hitting fighter from Coventry (3-0, 2 KOs) burst onto the scene in 2021 and last year added two impressive saves to his resume, beating Mait Metsis and Pawel Strykowski. An opponent for Harris will be named soon.
Undefeated Scottish heavyweight starlet Scott Forrest (3-0, 3 KOs) will be keen to show off his skills on the night he collides with Amine “The Beast” Boucetta (7-5).
BOXXER Founder and CEO Ben Shalom said: “These are four terrific additions to what is already a successful card. Tickets are selling out fast with outstanding crowds ready for an incredible night of boxing in Manchester.”
The main event – in association with Wasserman Boxing – sees bitter middleweight foes Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith square off in what promises to be an epic national clash for the ages, with both rivals keen to make a move. giant towards their desired world title goals. .
Elsewhere on the stacked pay-per-view card, Richard Riakporhe takes on former WBO world heavyweight champion Krzysztof Głowacki, as local boy Jack Massey moves up the heavyweight division to fight former world champion Joseph Parker.
