Matchroom announced a show for Sunday, October 4th headlined by light heavyweight Joshua Buatsi (13-2 including the World Series of Boxing) against former Croatian amateur standout Marko Calic (16-5 including the World Series of Boxing). Calic is undefeated, winning twelve straight since dropping from cruiserweight to light heavyweight. Also on the show, Chantelle Cameron (12-0, 7 KOs) take on Brazil’s Adriana Dos Santos Araujo (6-0, 1 KO) for the vacant WBC 140-pound title in her first fight under the Matchroom banner. [The title has apparently been stripped from Jessica McCaskill who moved up to weterweight].
Fresh from his two-round destruction of Shawndell Winters on the final weekend of Fight Camp, ‘The Savage’ Alen Babic (4-0, 4 KOs) returns to the UK looking to impress again as he locks horns with Irishman Niall Kennedy (13-1-1, 8 KOs) in an eight-round heavyweight contest.
Aqib Fiaz (5-0) and Kane Baker (13-6) look to settle a grudge, Luton’s Linus Udofia (15-0, 7 KOs) puts his English middleweight title on the line for the first time against Dillian Whyte-backed Brixton man John Harding Jr (8-1-1, 2 KOs) and recent Matchroom signing John Hedges makes his pro debut.
