Middleweight tournament

Ultimate Boxxer, Britain’s first boxing entertainment brand, has announced a five-event broadcast deal with BT Sport, with events being simulcast on BoxNation.

The next tournament at Middleweight takes place on Friday 10th May at The Indigo at The O2, with a whopping £50k up for grabs for the winner.

Created to provide a new boxing experience, it's hoped Ultimate Boxxer will provide a lot of new opportunities to young fighters. Their two prior events were hugely popular in 2018, taking place in Manchester last April (Welterweight) and London in November (Light-Heavyweight).

Eight talented fighters from around the UK will battle it out in the high-paced elimination tournament in four quarter-finals of 3 x 3 minute rounds, followed by two semi-finals and one final to determine the winner who will win the large share of the prize money, a promotional deal and be catapulted up the rankings.

1. JOE HURN, Clacton, Essex, 10-0-1 (6 KOs)

2. TEY-LYNN JONES, Southern Area Champion, Basildon, Essex, 11-1-0 (2 KOs)

3. DERRICK ‘THE PUNCHING PREACHER’ OSAZE, Peckham, London, 6-0 (1 KO)

4. GRANT DENNIS, Former Southern Area Champion, Chatham, Kent, 12-1 (2 KOs)

5. KEIRON CONWAY, Northampton, Northamptonshire, 10-0 (3 KOs)

6. JOSH GROOMBRIDGE, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, 7-1 (4 KOs)

7. SEAN PHILLIPS, Gravesend, Kent, 5-0-1 (1 KO)

8. KAAN HAWES, Witham, Essex, 5-0-1

Founder of Ultimate Boxxer, Ben Shalom, said: “It’s great to get this over the line with BT Sport who share the same vision to bring something extra to the boxing industry. British boxing has never been in such a healthy position and Ultimate Boxxer will present long-term opportunities for boxers whilst giving sports fans an experience they won’t forget. I’m really looking forward to getting started on May 10th with an extremely competitive card.”

Ultimate Boxxer Director Paulie Malignaggi, said: “When we started this last year we wanted to give the biggest platform possible to the competing fighters. I’m very excited to watch some amazing stories unfold on this journey and see the tournaments evolve.”

Ultimate Boxxer have already confirmed their second event of 2019 on June 28th in Manchester.
