By Matchroom Boxing February 1st, 2016 All Boxing News

Hosea Burton will face Miles Shinkwin for the vacant British Light-Heavyweight title at the sold-out Manchester Arena on February 27, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Manchester man Burton’s patient wait for a title shot finally ends on the undercard of his Joe Gallagher gym-mate Scott Quigg’s World title unification blockbuster with Carl Frampton, and the unbeaten 27 year old believes he’ll claim the title in style.

“I have always wanted to land the British title and finally I have my chance,” said Burton. “The division is as good as ever at world level but domestically it is poor because the British title hasn’t been fought for. Hopefully by making the belt active again the division can be as exciting as it should be. Shinkwin is a good test but I'm very confident I will get him out of there in style on February 27. More...

“Neubrandenburg holds a very special place in my heart,” said Braehmer. “It was here that I beat Marcus Oliveria to become World Champion for a second time. So of course, I’m looking forward to returning to the Jahnsportforum and successfully defending my title against Oosthuizen.”’ More...

George Groves Teams Up With Top Trainer McGuigan

By Matchroom Boxing January 31st, 2016 All Boxing News
