    Default Kelly, Chisora, Benn, Allen, Cordina - O2 ARENA - 20/4/19

    Josh Kelly will defend his WBA international title against unbeaten Pole Przemyslaw Runowski.

    As revealed in Echo column 'Fighting Talk' last week, Kelly will take on the 17-0 Eastern European at the O2 Arena on April 20 - a card headlined by popular heavyweight Dave Allen's clash with former world champion Lucas Browne.

    "Runowski’s a solid opponent," said welterweight Kelly.

    "They breed them tough in Eastern Europe but I’m ready to dismantle him and put on a show for everyone in the crowd and watching at home.

    "It excites me every time I step through the ropes. This year is going to be massive if everything goes to plan.

    "I’ve got to keep my feet firmly on the ground, continue to work and get the results."

    Dereck Chisora, Conor Benn and Joe Cordina are also set to be on the card, which has been underwhelmingly received by fight fans.

    Elsewhere on the north east fight scene, Lewis Ritson's next opponent has also been confirmed.

    Ritson has moved up to light welterweight having conquered the domestic lightweight scene.

    He will take on Argentina's German Argentino Benitez for the WBA Inter-Continental title at the Copper Box Arena on March 23.

    "Now is the right time to move up to 140lbs," said Ritson, trained by Hartlepool's Neil Fannon.

    "I probably should have moved up in weight a while ago but I was determined to test myself on the European scene which is why I carried on. There's no excuses from me though about the last fight.

    "You'll see a different Lewis Ritson with the extra 5lbs to play with. The power will be more telling, we were surprised boiling down to make 135lbs I was getting good kids out of there in that fashion. But that shows I have natural power, which will only show with the extra weight."

    Seems like a kind of dreadful card Do they only open part of the arena for cards like this, or just handout free tickets as they often do in the US? Kelly is a great prospect, but the guy he’s fighting has 3 stoppages out of a bunch of fights at a low level, shouldn’t be much to see. Lucas Browne vs Dave Allen is one step up from a bum fight based on recent form. No opponents even announced for the other guys. There was something about Chisora fighting Parker a while ago, guess that’s not the case.

    Lucas Browne a former World champion , that to real fans was never the case . He is a pub bouncer at best , and the WBA can makeup as many belts per division as they like it doesnt make them real.
    Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .
