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.
Ultimate Boxxer have already confirmed their second event of 2019 on June 28th in Manchester.
GRANT DENNIS, Former Southern Area Champion, Chatham, Kent, 12-1 (2 KOs)
Grant Dennis, The ‘Go Getter’, a former Southern Area Middleweight Champion needed just 48 seconds to score a stunning KO victory in his last fight out. Has been unlucky not to go further with his only loss coming in a British title fight and will be looking at this event as his chance. Coming into the competition as the oldest competitor.
JOE HURN, Clacton, Essex, 10-0-1 (6 KOs)
Built like a brick, the big puncher from Essex is aiming to blast his way through the fights. Has struggled for opportunities despite being highly rated. This is the type of fighter Ultimate Boxxer will help.
Lynn-Jones (blue)Osaze (grey)
On Air @ 8pm
TEY-LYNN JONES, Southern Area Champion, Basildon, Essex, 11-1-0 (2 KOs)
Defended his Southern Area title in his last fight and has sparred with the likes of World Champions Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale and George Groves. Extremely confident of success and a sworn vegan.
Tipped as the favourite. This undefeated hot-shot has tasted the high-life after featuring on an Amir Khan undercard. He is now ready to make his move in the division.
KAAN HAWES, Witham, Essex, 5-0-1
No losses on his record and relatively unknown. Learnt his trade on the white collar scene after a previous career in professional football. He is an outsider with a big fanbase...stranger things have happened.
Big support and not to be underestimated. The dark horse who will be seeking a break through as a serious contender. He is a massive character with an enormous following and warns that he is not to be underestimated.
SEAN PHILLIPS, Gravesend, Kent, 5-0-1 (1 KO)
Training out of the famous Peacock gym. The young, unbeaten, 22-year-old has been tipped for a bright future under the watchful eye of top trainer Martin Bowers.
