Undercard preview and how to watch

Anthony Yarde is set with the arduous task of dethroning the world’s unified light-heavyweight champion, Artur Beterbiev, on Saturday night.

As fans eagerly awaited to see such a great champion on British soil, those who were unable to attend were delighted to learn that the event would not be pay-per-view.

Undercard full preview

There are many Queensbury prospects appearing on the card. Khalid Ali (4-0) is set to hit the ring earlier tonight, when he faces Croatian Ivica Gogosevic (12-44-2) in the super middleweight division. This will be Ali’s fourth match and the young Anglo-Bangladesh will try to do what Aaron McKenna couldn’t and get a goal against the 38-year-old, who has lost his last 32 matches.

National amateur champion and Hamzah Sheeraz’s cousin, Umar Khan (5-0), will also go on to make a triumphant start to his professional career. The 20-year-old bantamweight superstar has not signed up for a break since turning pro nearly two years ago and suffered a scare against Engel Gomez last year, where he was eliminated in the second round. Khan will face India’s Sandeep Singh Bhatti (8-5), who overtook Isaac Lowe in December.

Bhatti also brought in Charles Frankham (6-0) as referee last year, who will appear on the card alongside his brother Joshua Frankham (6-0). The Frankham brothers come from a proud ‘fight family’ – not only a cousin of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, but also the grandson of Johnny Frankham, who famously fought and knocked out Muhammad Ali in 1971.

Charles fought Joshua Ocampo (8-10-4), a Colombian featherweight super boxer who lost eight rounds on the spin after a good start to his career. Meanwhile, welterweight Joshua faced off against Joe Hardy (2-4), who claimed his second career win in November, before losing 38-39 three weeks later to Connor Meanwell.

Masood Abdullah (7-0) returns to the ring to face Lesther Lara of Nicaragua (17-13-2) in the super featherweight division. Abdullah has stopped five opponents in his career so far and will be looking to add to that record against an opponent who has been knocked out in two of his last four games.

Meanwhile, welterweight Sean Noakes (3-0) had an impressive start to his career, becoming the sixth man to stand in the way of the enduring MJ Hall. Noakes played against 20-year-old Colombian tennis player Santiago Garces, who drew with Joshua Ocampo. He was undefeated in the first seven fights but lost twelve after that.
