Fight Night Main Event: Anthony Yarde (UK) vs Dec Spelman (UK)
Fight Night Main event involves an all-British encounter between “The Beast from the East” and former world title contender Anthony Yarde vs the resilient Dec Spelman.
Anthony Yarde (20-1-0)
The fighter from Hackney emerged from nowhere after having a very short amateur career of 12 fights. He steadily climbed up the WBO rankings to challenge Norbert Nemesapati for the vacant WBO Inter-continental Light-heavyweight title.
Yarde dropped Nemesapati twice in the second round to capture the belt and after making five title defences, winning them all by stoppage, he received a shot to challenge the formidable Sergey Kovalev for the WBO Light-heavyweight title in Moscow.
Unfortunately Yarde suffered his first professional loss after losing by TKO in the 11th round and took a long break after that. Now he is fit and ready to come back and prove that he deserves another title shot.
Dec Spelman (16-4-0)
The domestic light-heavyweight from Scunthorpe does not have much experience on an international level, but he challenged Lyndon Arthur for the Commonwealth title and went the distance with him. So he will give the beast some tough rounds and use every single opportunity he has.
Mark Heffron (23-1-0)
Mark “Kid Dynamite” Heffron has established himself as one of the most feared Middleweights in Britain. The big puncher steamrolled to 19-0 until he boxed World title challenger Liam Williams for the British Middleweight title. He sadly lost that fight by TKO but has returned in 2019 and bagged four incredible wins. Now he is challenging for the European IBF title.
Denzel Bentley (13-0)
The fast-rising Middleweight from London that claimed 13 wins with 11 of them coming by KO. After being three years in the professional game, he will take his first serious step by challenging Heffron for the European title and is considered the underdog in this fight. However, he too has big punching ability and will do whatever it takes to right all wrongs.
Ekow Essuman (13-0)
Essuman is a British professional boxer who held the English Welterweight title since 2018 and is in the mix to challenge for the British title against Chris Jenkins alongside with Conor Benn. He will challenge for the vacant IBF European IBF title.
Cedrick Peynaud (8-7-3)
The Paris-based Peynaud will prove to be an ideal test against the Essuman, even though his record does not seem to be promising. Peynaud challenged Welterweight prospect Conor Benn back in 2017 and dropped him twice in the opening round. Unfortunately, he did not win the bout but gave him a very tough fight, therefore he will give Essuman his toughest fight to date.
Other news regarding Fight Night
Nathan Gorman (16-1-0) was meant to be on Yarde’s undercard to challenge Ghanaian Heavyweight Richard Larter, but Lartey could not provide and medicals for the fight so the fight was pushed back to October 10th on the undercard of Liam Williams’ mandatory defence against Andrew Robinson. The young British Heavyweight has not been in the ring in over a year after his loss against Heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois and will want to put himself back in the Heavyweight mix.
