Alexander Povetkin’s WBA World Heavyweight title defence against Hasim Rahman has been withdrawn from the show at West Ham United on Saturday 14th July. The fight was to feature on the card being topped by David Haye and Dereck Chisora’s eagerly awaited WBO/WBA International heavyweight showdown.
Due to licensing conditions at West Ham United, Haye v Chisora could not start later than 10pm and with German TV network ARD insisting, due to their Saturday night scheduling, that Povetkin v Rahman must fill that slot and be before Haye v Chisora, that time frame was impossible to work to.
The show is being televised in sixty-plus countries, many with more than a one hour time difference, so to get everyone to agree to ARD’s preferred order would be impossible.
EPIX will broadcast the fight live in the USA and they need to be comfortable with the start time too. If Haye v Chisora, which is the main attraction on the show, was to go on before Povetkin v Rahman it would have had to start no later than 8.20pm meaning that Povetkin v Rahman could potentially have taken place in front of an empty stadium with the majority of fans leaving to catch trains and other public transport.
With the fight being withdrawn from the show, BoxNation will now showcase some of the very best talent on the soon to be sold out show.
Manchester’s big-hitting Matthew Hall will now challenge unbeaten Irishman Gary O’Sullivan for the Vacant WBO International Middleweight title and Cromer’s exciting Commonwealth champion, Liam Walsh faces new opponent Italian Domenic Urbano for the Vacant WBO European Super-Featherweight title.
Unbeaten Oldham welterweight Ronnie Heffron features in an eight round contest, plus Stockton-on-Tees lightweight prospect Bradley Saunders will go in over six rounds and Lithuanian super-middleweight Sergej Rozvadovsky over eight rounds.
Haye v Chisora will be televised live and exclusive in the UK on BoxNation, (Sky Ch. 456, Virgin Ch. 546) and in America on EPIX.
British stars Frankie Gavin, Matthew Hall and Liam Walsh will all feature in big championship title action at West Ham United on Saturday 14th July. The show, promoted by BoxNation in association with Sauerland Events and Hayemaker Boxing, is headlined by the highly anticipated all-British heavyweight showdown between David Haye and Dereck Chisora.
The show, which also features Alexander Povetkin defending his WBA World Heavyweight title against Hasim Rahman, is live and exclusive on BoxNation, (Sky Ch. 456, Virgin Ch. 546).
It was confirmed at a press conference in London today that unbeaten Birmingham welterweight ace Frankie Gavin, Britain’s only ever World Amateur Champion, will challenge for the Vacant WBO European title against an opponent to be confirmed.
Cromer’s exciting Liam Walsh, who’s last fight was a thriller against Paul Appleby last September, takes on Frenchman Sebastian Cornu – who he beat on points in September 2010 – for the Vacant WBO European Super-Featherweight Championship.
Undefeated Walsh already holds the Commonwealth title and is looking forward to fighting for another belt. “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to showcase my talent on the biggest show of the year, in front of a massive crowd, live on BoxNation, it’s just a dream for me and I can’t wait for it.”
Manchester puncher Matthew Hall, a former Commonwealth Champion, will be looking to cause a big upset against rising unbeaten German star Jack Culcay with the Vacant WBA International Light-Middleweight title on the line.
Hall lost to Sam Webb in April, but is now ready to bounce back into action and claim the title. “I know I can pull off a massive shock against Culcay. I’ve got the experience and toughness to beat him, I know I can do it. I’ve got a family to feed and if I don’t fight and win then they will go without so I know I’ve got to beat Culcay and win the title.”
Also announced today was that BoxNation and venerated charity Nordoff Robbins, who use music therapy and other music services to help people with a range of challenges including autism, dementia, mental health and brain injury, will tie up for the fight.
A charitable donations is being made by BoxNation to Nordoff Robbins and there will be a charitable collection at the show on Saturday 14th July.
