CRUISERWEIGHT contender Isaac Chamberlain is set to continue on his quest for world titles as he prepares to headline Hennessy Sports’ latest fight night in London.
Chamberlain will join McKenna brothers Stevie and Aaron, Kaisee Benjamin, Tommy Welch, Idris Virgo, Brett McGinty and Michael Hennessy Jr on the show at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre on Friday 10th December, live on Channel 5.
The 27-year-old, who has a record of 13-1, will also have the chance to claim the IBF International title when he descends on the capital.
Standing in his way will be former world title challenger Dilan Prasovic, who boasts a record of 15-1 with 12KOs. His solitary defeat came at the hands of world champion Lawrence Okolie.
Elsewhere, McKenna brothers Stevie and Aaron will both be looking to keep up their recent momentum following impressive displays in Coventry last time out when they challenge for world youth titles.
Further down the card sees charismatic super-middleweight Virgo (11-0-1) return alongside big punching Brighton heavyweight Welch (6-0).
Ireland’s McGinty, who is trained by British boxing legend Ricky Hatton, is looking to advance to 5-0 with a win in South London, in what will be his first fight in the city, while super-welterweight Hennessy Jr (8-1-1) targets his fifth consecutive victory as he continues his fine run of form.
Last time out, Benjamin (14-1-1) registered his fifth knockout win with an emphatic finish against Germany’s Andreas Maier.
Following his victory the 27-year-old announced he will be moving down in weight to super-lightweight, where he’s looking to fight Sam Maxwell for the British Title in the near future.
Added to the show are popular locals heavyweight Naylor Ball and super-flyweight Alfie Clegg.
Reflecting on the card, Promoter Mick Hennessy says he’s looking forward to producing another exciting night of boxing.
“We’ve got one of the most exciting talents in world boxing headlining an exciting card at a great venue in London. Isaac comes up against a world title challenger who’s only loss came to WBO world cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie. This is a superb opportunity for Isaac to put himself into world title contention and put everyone on notice. I believe he already has the star quality to beat the current world champions in the division.”
