Ultimate Boxxer II
After an explosive Ultimate Boxxer debut at the Manchester Arena earlier this year, the fast-paced and hard-hitting event touches down in London on 2 November 2018 at indigo at The O2. The second edition of the tournament sees the spotlight turn to the light heavyweight division, with eight highly rated British boxers squaring off to achieve their career changing or defining moment.
Entrants include Joel McIntyre, who will enter the tournament with an expected English title, the controversial John McCallum; 7-time national champion at amateur level with only one loss on his pro-record coming through injury. The unbeaten 6’6” Shakan Pitters represents Birmingham and Dec Spelman returns to his biggest stage yet following his tragic fight with the late Scott Westgarth.
Other members of the final 8 consist of title challengers Jordan Joseph, Darrel Church and Sam Horsfall, who many would see as the wildcard, after turning professional earlier this year and quickly gaining two victories.
Fighters will compete for their share of the £50k prize money and the second golden robe.
Love Island’s own Idris Virgo makes his return to the ring following his search for love on the reality TV show this summer. Virgo holds a perfect 2-0 record, with the Birmingham man fighting in the capital for the first time.
Boxing legends Paulie Malignaggi, Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla will play their part in a star-studded team and Britain’s biggest DJ Charlie Sloth returns to entertain the London crowd alongside many special guests.
‘The first show has attracted more and more quality fighters which made our decision for places very difficult. We think we’ve chosen a card perfect for the London crowd. It has everything and it’s impossible to call who will come out on top.’
- Benjamin Shalom, Founder of Ultimate Boxxer.
‘I love what this brand can do for the sport and the opportunity it can give to talented fighters. The first show blew my mind and the card looks even better for this one.’
- Paulie Malignaggi, Former Two-Weight World Champion and Ultimate Boxxer Non-Executive Director.
