Savannah Marshall tops Sky Sports Boxing and BOXXER’s show tonight in Newcastle, a card that will also see Hughie Fury and Chris Eubank Jr feature. Sky’s new-look boxing set-up will be put to the test for the second time since their split with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing earlier in the year.
Yet there is still plenty of British talent on show and a lively atmosphere is expected on Tyneside following the news of Newcastle’s £305million Saudi-backed take-over.
Marshall will put her WBO middleweight title on the line when she trades leather with Lolita Muzeya.
Meanwhile, Eubank Jr and his opponent Wanik Awdijan have been locked in a heated war of words on fight week.
Eubank was frustrated with Awdijan inability to back up his online trash talk when the two came face-to-face but the German claims he will do his talking in the ring.
The Brit, who was due to face Anatoli Muratov before a late cancellation two weeks ago, is looking to make it five straight victories as he bids to put some momentum together following his defeat to George Groves in 2018.
Tyson Fury’s cousin Hughie is also back in action when he takes on Christian Hammer.
DON’T MISS: Deontay Wilder banned from fighting for six months after devastating Tyson Fury knockout
The former world heavyweight title challenger was last in action on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s seventh-round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev in December 2020.
Fury will be looking to make it two big wins from two in the aftermath of the Gypsy King’s stunning 11th-round stoppage of Deontay Wilder last week in Las Vegas.
Elsewhere, four-weight world champion Mikey Garcia is back in action in the US when he takes on Sandor Martin at light-welterweight in Fresno, California.
And in Latvia, IBF and Ring Magazine cruiserweight world champion Mairis Briedis defends his belts against Artur Mann in Latvia.
The bout will be of significance to WBO world champion Lawrence Okolie – who was last out on the AJ versus Usyk undercard at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – as The Sauce looks to unify the division.
