Jamie Conlan Added to Cardiff Ice Arena Card July 16



Belfast thrillmeister Jamie Conlan has been added to the mouth-watering Cardiff Ice Arena show on July 16th. The 29 year-old super-flyweight supremo will box over eight rounds against an opponent to be confirmed, live and exclusive on BoxNation.

Conlan (16-0 – 10 KOs), has a well-deserved reputation as a rising star in the super-flyweight division, due to his undefeated record and strong KO ratio. He has an eye-catching and offensive boxing style, which has spawned his nickname, ‘The Mexican”. 

Irish hero Conlan signed a promotional agreement with Frank Warren in March and is looking to move his career onto the next level as he hunts down a world title. The Irishman is in a ultra-competitive division that contains British rival Paul Butler, plus the classy, big-hitting, WBO World Champion from Japan Nagoya Inoue.

Last time out all-action Conlan beat South Sheild’s Anthony Nelson to claim the Commonwealth Super-Flyweight crown in an early fight of the year contender. Braveheart Conlan looked in trouble in round seven but survived to land the decisive blow in heroic fashion.

“I’m buzzing to be added to the talent-stacked Cardiff Ice Arena show and can’t wait to get back out there. I’ve never boxed in Wales even as an amateur so its another box ticked off. I’ll be looking to correct the mistakes from the Nelson fight and rack up another win in style.”

“I believe Frank Warren is the best promoter out there and will get me where I want to be and that’s a world champion. I’m pushing onto world level now and Frank’s expertise is second to none so I know that I’m in great hands. I’m getting out regularly and that’s the best way to progress as a fighter.”

A talent-stacked undercard sees British and Commonwealth Champion Super Bradley Skeete make the fifth defence of his WBO European Welterweight title; Baggies banger Tommy Langford defends his WBO Inter-Continental belt; Southampton’s red-hot Joe Pigford looks to extend his unbeaten run to eleven fights; Welshmen Craig Evans, Alex Hughes and Jay Harris all look to impress in front of their home crowd.

Tickets are priced at £35, £40, £70, £100, £150 and £200 are available from:

Hughie Fury Inks Deal with Frank Warren



One of the world’s best young heavyweight prospects, Hughie Fury, has signed a promotional agreement with Hall of Fame Promoter Frank Warren.

The exciting and undefeated Manchester star will have his first fight under the new deal on the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO World Middleweight title defence against “Mad” Max Bursak on Saturday 30th April at the Copper Box Arena, London, exclusively live on BoxNation.

The 21-year-old, who is the younger cousin of Unified World Heavyweight Champion Tyson, has a fight lined up first at Wembley Arena against Nagy Aguilera where he aims to take his perfect record to 19-0 and then it’s full steam ahead as he works towards a world title and join Tyson.

With the heavyweight division in a new era after the Klitschko brothers long dominance, Fury is in a perfect position to capitalise as he also eyes showdowns against British rivals David Haye and Anthony Joshua, who he believes he has the beating of.

Fury has ripped through the division with his devastating, all-action, style that has seen him halt 10 out of 18 opponents early with eight coming inside three rounds and is looking to make a big impact at the Copper Box Arena.

“I’m delighted to be featuring on Boxnation I boxed on their shows in the past and really enjoyed the experience. I am going to make a big impact over the next few years and join my cousin Tyson at the very top of the sport. Thank you Boxnation and look forward to the 30th April and future fights.”  Enthused Hughie.

Warren said, “Hughie is one of the best and most exciting young heavyweight prospects in the world and I’m thrilled to sign him.  He wants to fight regularly and for a heavyweight talent of his potential that’s essential as he closes in on a world title.  The division is certainly opening up with plenty of opportunities and Hughie is going to figure dominantly in the next few years.”

Hughie’s father Peter, who trains him alongside Tyson, said, “We’re delighted at Team Fury for Hughie Lewis Fury to be fighting on the Frank Warren and Boxnation show on the 30th April on the Billy Joe Saunders bill.  We look forward to future fights with Boxnation with Hughie who is without doubt a future superstar in the sport.”

WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders makes the first defence of his title against “Mad” Max Bursak and headlines an action-packed card that also features: The Vacant European Cruiserweight title between Ovill McKenzie v Dmytro Kucher; Ryan Walsh defends his British Featherweight Championship against James Tennyson.  The full undercard will released shortly.
