The Interim NABA Heavyweight Championship

Two weight world champ Tarver steps up to heavyweight for Sheppard

We're bringing you another Golden Boy on Fox show LIVE on BoxNation as we extend our weeknight boxing schedule with this Tuesday night special!

After spells as light-heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion, 43-year-old Antonio Tarver is moving up to heavyweight where he faces experienced West Virginia fighter Mike Sheppard with the Interim NABA Heavyweight title on the line.

Since 2003, Tarver has enjoyed multiple spells as a world champion, but hasn't fought since the summer of 2012 after failing a drug test surrounding his last fight with Lateef Kayode.

Now Tarver wants to show the world he's ready to return, and he faces a Mike Sheppard who's keen on springing a big upset.

BoxNation will be LIVE with this show late Tuesday 26th November - early Wednesday 27th - from 2am.
