The British Heavyweight Title

Heavy hitters collide at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Sports Centre on October 6th, with a tasty British Title fight topping the bill, promoted by MTK Scotland.

Gary Cornish (24-1, 12 KOs) meets Sam Sexton (23-3, 9 KOs) for the vacant British Heavyweight crown. Since his defeat to Anthony Joshua, Cornish has recorded three wins on the scorecards over Kamil Sokolowski (twice) and Tomas Mrazek.

This will be Sexton’s first fight since July 2015. The Norfork Heavyweight’s only defeats have come to David Price and Dereck Chisora (twice).

Now the Scot faces Simon Barclay (9-1, 1 KO) for the IBF European Cruiserweight Title.

Simmons fought for the WBO International Title in October 2016 but lost on a split decision against Noel Gevor (21-0 at the time) in Germany.
