Wonder how many punters will actually fork out for this and be at the venue?
My guess is it will be under half full, i'm hoping the Murray fight will be a war and it should be style wise.
It needs to be because the undercard fights are a fucking disgrace.
Yarde is fighting a 27% KO rated Pole who's had more decision wins than Michael Jackson did
Dubois is fighting Tom Little who has a 20% KO ratio and 2 losses to "Tom Dallas" and one to Dorian Darch who Dubois banged out in 2 rounds
O'Hara Davies is fighting Paul "Um Bongo Um Bongo they drink it in the Congo" Kamanga who at least has a half decent record with a 50% KO ratio and 21 fights with only 1 loss by UD so let's hope we get some rounds out of him.
Roberto Garcia will defend his WBC Silver Middleweight title against Martin Murray at The O2 in London on June 23, live on BT Sport and BoxNation.
Murray will be looking to put the frustrations of missing out on a shot at the WBO Middleweight World Title behind him when he challenges Mexico’s 41-3 Garcia later this month.
Garcia is currently enjoying a 13-fight winning streak that stretches back to 2010 and will be heading to London full of confidence.
“I was gutted about Billy Joe Saunders pulling out of our fight for a second time but this is a great replacement,” said Murray. “Roberto Garcia is the Champion and he’s willing to travel to the UK so we know he is well up for it.
“He’s been calling me out on Twitter for a while and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to make the fight so quickly. This means that several months of hard training won’t got to waste and I’ll be out on June 23 topping a great show.
“A good win against Garcia will put me in a strong position with the WBC so there’s everything to fight for. It has been a frustrating period of my career and I’ll be taking my anger out on Garcia on June 23 before moving on to even bigger fights.”
“I’m not like Saunders,” said Garcia. “I’m not afraid of Murray. I’m willing to risk my title and come to London to beat Murray in front of his own fans. My promoter Don King will be in London to watch me win in style. Let’s get it on!”
Garcia v Murray tops a talent-packed card that features some of the UK’s finest young fighters including Light-Heavyweight KO artist Anthony Yarde, Heavyweight monster Daniel Dubois in English title action against Tom Little and Hackney talent Ohara Davies.
Further updates to the card will follow this week.
