2020 Olympic Medallist Ben Whittaker (4-0, 3 KOs) returns to the scene of his spectacular pro debut to take on Stiven Leonetti Dredhaj (11-2-1, 3 KOs). 


Fellow 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist Lauren Price is set to face Italy’s former European Champion Silvia Bortot. Having made history earlier this year by becoming the first female to win a British title, Price (5-0, 1 KO) will be aiming to end 2023 with a statement win against Bortot (11-3-1, 3 KOs), who previously went the distance with former unified world champion Mikael Mayer. 


Fans can also look forward to a potential show-stealing showdown between Bournemouth’s Lee Cutler (13-1, 7 KOs) and Kingsley Egbunike (8-2-1, 1 KO) for the vacant English Super Welterweight Title.


BOXXER CEO and Founder Ben Shalom said: “The Bournemouth International Centre is going to be rocking on December 10th as we end the year with another spectacular sold-out show on the south coast. We have Olympic medallists, local stars and some of British boxing’s hottest young talents in action. This show is a real Christmas cracker and one you do not want to miss!”


RETURN OF THE KING: Chris Billam-Smith vs. Mateusz Masternak takes place on Sunday, December 10 at the Bournemouth International Centre and will be streamed live on Peacock beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT.
