Lee V Saunders

Andy Lee finally puts his world title on the line against rival Billy Joe Saunders in the highly anticipated showdown that everyone has been waiting to see.

Irishman Lee, one of the world’s most exciting fighters, won the title with a dramatic knockout of the previously undefeated Matt Korobov and must now face his mandatory challenger – Saunders.

The undefeated Englishman has claimed the records of four unbeaten fighters in a row in his last five fights, including a victory over Chris Eubank Jnr. and now aims to realise his dream by beating Lee to become world champion.

Liverpool and Manchester will clash in the boxing ring with a world title on the line for the first time  in a staggering 82 years when WBO World Super-Welterweight Champion Liam Smith defends his title against undefeated challenger Jimmy Kelly on Saturday 19th December at the Manchester Arena.

Liverpool ace Smith demolished America John Thompson in seven round this month to lift the world title with some devastating punching and aims to show that he’s the top man in the 154lb division.

Fresh off winning the prestigious Young Boxer of the Year award from the Boxing Writer’s Club, the exciting Mitchell Smith returns to action taking on George Jupp.

An action-packed card will also feature former IBF World Bantamweight Champion Paul Butler as continues on his comeback towards a second record-breaking world title at a lighter weight class, plus Lancashire super-lightweight hot-shot Jack Catterall, with both in championship title action.

With more title fights to be added and an undercard full of the best British prospects all in action, Boxing Day has come early for fight fans.
