Statement By Hatton Promotions And Lucas Browne

By Hatton Promotions April 23rd, 2016 All Boxing News

Hatton Promotions wishes to confirm that on 15 April 2016 Lucas Browne undertook an independent polygraph test. This is a test often referred to and commonly known as a "lie detector" test.

We confirm that Lucas unequivocally passed the test. He did not knowingly or intentionally place banned substances including the drug clenbuterol into his system ahead of his world title victory against Ruslan Chagaev.

Lucas stated: "I am pleased that the polygraph test confirmed that I am telling the truth. The result is not a surprise to me as I have always said I am a clean athlete, I know I arrived in Grozny a clean athlete and I know I did nothing wrong when I was there. More...


–Maughan Wants Irish Title More Than Anything-

By Hatton Promotions April 18th, 2016 All Boxing News

Trainer Carl Greaves insists Terry Maughan is relishing being an underdog ahead of his Irish super-welterweight title clash with Pauly Upton.

Greaves, who is also one of Britain’s hardest working managers and promoters, has taken over Maughan’s preparations for the fight at the Deco in Northampton next Saturday (April 23) and believes his man has the tools to upset the odds.

“Pauly will start as the favourite and that’s fine by us,” he said. “Being the underdog suits Terry because it gets him fired up and I’ve never seen him more determined to win. More...


Arrowsmith Aims To Make Statement On Northampton Return

By Hatton Promotions April 13th, 2016 All Boxing News

Reuben Arrowsmith believes that boxing on home turf for the first time will bring out the best in him.

The 19-year-old, a former Great Britain representative as an amateur, has not lost a round in four outings since turning over last October.

But he feels he’s only shown a modicum of his true capabilities and intends on stepping things up a gear when he appears on Hatton Promotions’ 'St George's Day Clash' show at The Deco in Northampton on April 23. More...


The Stingray: Brophy Vows To Shock Veteran Groves

By Matchroom Boxing April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

David Brophy says he will punish George Groves if he looks past their fight at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The unbeaten Scotsman lands a golden chance to gatecrash the lucrative and talent-stacked Super-Middleweight scene with a meeting with the Londoner for the vacant WBA International title.

Groves is plotting an assault on a fourth World title shot having been edged out by WBC king Badou Jack in Las Vegas in September, but the unbeaten Caldercruix man believes he has the tools to capitalise on his shot if ‘Saint’ George is looking past him. More...


Middleweight Nick Blackwell Wakes From Induced Coma

By Hennessy Sports April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

On Saturday, April 2, 2016, Nick 'Bang Bang' Blackwell woke from an induced coma. Twenty-four hours later, on Sunday, he was talking to family and close friends at his bedside.

Nick had been placed in an induced coma following a British middleweight title contest at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday, March 26. Contrary to early reports, though, his bleed was outside the brain – on the skull, in fact – and was minor enough for there to be no need to operate.

He was in an induced coma for almost seven days, given the very best possible treatment by the incredible team at St. Mary's Hospital, and the sedatives used were gradually reduced over this period of time. More...


Rosas Out, Vargas In For WBA Champ Jamie McDonnell

By Matchroom Boxing April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

Fernando Vargas has replaced Juan Alberto Rosas as the opponent for WBA Bantamweight king Jamie McDonnell at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Vargas lands a golden opportunity on the bill following a huge win for the 27 year old Mexican over former World champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in Brooklyn in June, and provides the Doncaster man’s first action in the UK since his two brilliant wins over Tomoki Kameda in Texas last year.

McDonnell turned 30 last week and believes a great performance against Vargas can see him land a unification bout in the summer, as he looks to dominate at 118lbs before a potential move to Super-Bantamweight. More...

Once Upon A Time In The West Once Upon A Time In The West: Championship Boxing

Since then Ryan has dedicated himself to boxing and fought over 60 fights as an amateur before turning professional. Ryan teamed up with Bristol boxing manager Chris Sanigar in 2015 and is on a three fight winning streak after boxing to a draw in his debut. More...


Arum, Pacquiao, Roach Talk About Pacquiao vs. Bradley III

By Top Rank April 6th, 2016 All Boxing News

Bob Arum: This is a very interesting promotion as far as I’m concerned. A lot of people are concentrating on the new and improved Tim Bradley. Manny Pacquiao with his right arm now totally repaired – he has had that torn rotator cuff since before the De La Hoya fight.

A lot of athletes are able to perform well with a torn rotator cuff – a lot of pitchers in the major leagues are able to perform well with it. Obviously now that it’s repaired, it is at full strength.

Freddie will tell you that Manny is hitting harder with the right hand – even harder than with the left hand, so he is now going to be a real two-handed fighter which is very interesting. I think Tim Bradley’s big advantage is that he is going in with a game plan. I don’t think he had much of a game plan in the first two fights but certainly Teddy has given him one. More...

By Matchroom Boxing April 2nd, 2016 All Boxing News

The 19 year old son of British boxing legend Nigel kicks off life in the paid ranks at Super-Lightweight under the guidance of trainer Tony Sims, and Conor says his goal is to outdo his iconic Dad’s incredible achievements as a two-weight World champion in the 90s. More...


Blackwell vs. Eubank Jr Showdown Nearing Zero Hour In London

By Hennessy Sports March 25th, 2016 All Boxing News

British middleweight champion Nick 'Bang Bang' Blackwell has scoffed in the face of Chris Eubank Jr.'s claims he's 'bland' and 'boring' and promised to take the fight to him when they meet on Saturday night at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

Blackwell and Eubank Jr. have become entangled in a war of words since their highly-anticipated fight was announced and the champion from Trowbridge is keen to expose the challenger's true colours this weekend.

“Boring? I think it's boring watching Chris Eubank Jr. beat up opponents who are basically punch bags time and time again,” says Blackwell. “You might as well go to your local boxing gym and watch someone hit the heavy bag for a few rounds. More...


Kell Brook Vows Not To Overlook Challenger Bizier

By Matchroom Boxing March 25th, 2016 All Boxing News

Kell Brook says he knows that mandatory challenger Kevin Bizier will be desperate to get his hands on his IBF Welterweight title when they meet at the Sheffield Arena on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

The Sheffield star landed the title as mandatory challenger himself, putting in a career best performance in ripping the belt from Shawn Porter in California in August 2014.

Brook has already defended the title against one Canadian mandatory challenger in Jo Jo Dan a year ago in the Steel City, and now meets Bizier, who would become Quebec City’s first World champion with victory. More...


“Five Star” Sykes Disavows Gatekeeper Status Against Campbell

By Matchroom Boxing March 25th, 2016 All Boxing News

Gary Sykes has warned Luke Campbell MBE that he’s not fighting to make up the numbers and will hand him a second pro defeat as they clash for the vacant Commonwealth Lightweight belt at the Sheffield Arena on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

The Dewsbury ace steps up to Lightweight having held the British and English titles at Super-Featherweight. A clash with Liam Walsh for his British belt and the vacant Commonwealth strap ended in defeat and showed Sykes that he needed to move up, and he wants to prove he can make an impact at 135 lb and he’s no stepping-stone for Campbell. More...


Bizier Mines Canadian Pride To Fule Brook World Title Attempt

By Matchroom Boxing March 25th, 2016 All Boxing News

Kevin Bizier wants to take Kell Brook’s IBF Welterweight title at the Sheffield Arena live on Sky Sports on Saturday night and add his name to the list of great Canadian World champions.

Bizier landed the mandatory challenger spot with an impressive win over unbeaten American Fredrick Lawson in November, the second Canadian fighter to land a mandatory shot at Brook after Jo Jo Dan faced him in his first defence a year ago.

Canadian stars Adonis Stevenson, Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal and David Lemieux have all topped the world in recent years, and Bizier wants to fulfil a childhood dream and make a name for himself in the Steel City. More...
