Tyson Fury says he will battle with North American champion Nicolai Firtha at Belfast's King's Hall on September 17 because he wants to give the Irish fans a night to remember.
The 12 round international contest will be shown live on Channel 5.
British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Fury could have fought lesser men but instead he faces the 32-year-old from Ohio who two fights ago went the distance with the new WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin who recently won his title with a points win over Ruslan Chagaev.
Firtha won the NABA title in 2010 after stopping Tony Grano in two rounds and since then he has been in the form of his life, his most recent victory coming on 13th August in Ohio and he has warned Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy that he is ready to halt the Fury bandwagon. More...

Dover Downs Hotel & Casino and the North American Boxing Organization announce the unanimous decision of the NABO Board to sanction the Amir Mansour vs. Dominick Guinn fight for the Heavyweight Interim Title on Aug. 19 in Dover, Delaware, US.
The winner of the NABO Interim Championship will garner an automatic Top 15 ranking into the WBO monthly world ratings. The belt is currently held by Tomasz Adamek, who is scheduled to fight Vitali Klitschko for the WBO Heavyweight Championship.
Next month, Mansour will become an international name in the sport of boxing.

His final hour of incarceration was served in a halfway house on the morning of that fight.
During his incarceration, Mansour had a “wake-up call” which led him to turn his life around. He earned a college degree, kept himself in peak physical condition and committed to living a clean, dignified life in which his family could be proud. More...

After suffering two defeats to Steve Molitor in IBF title fights over the last four years, Takalani Ndlovu gained revenge last night at Nasrec Indoor Arena in Johannesburg, capturing Molitor's IBF crown.
From the start, Ndlovu seemed to be a man on a mission, pushing the southpaw champion from Canada back with extra zeal and grit in front of a partisan hometown audience that packed the venue.
A notorious slow starter, Molitor usually builds up in intensity as the rounds go on but Ndlovu thwarted the pattern with a spearing body attack in the second that had the visitor hanging on until the end of the frame.
Ndlovu continued to pressure Molitor unceasingly, driving the North American onto the back foot behind a stiff jab that also kept Molitor from his usual tactic of effective counterpunching. More...
