Darlington’s world champion Stuart Hall tops the huge event when he makes the second defence of his crown against Ellesmere Port’s highly rated Paul Butler. After sparring in the past, the pair have traded insults ahead of the contest with each man convinced they will come out on top.
The chief support will be a sure-fire blockbuster when Birtley’s British cruiserweight champ Jon-Lewis Dickinson and Derby’s Commonwealth king Ovill McKenzie put their belts on the line in a winner-takes-all encounter.
Also appearing will be Bristol’s Lee Haskins in an IBF world bantamweight title eliminator against Sergio Perales; Sedgefield’s Bradley Saunders; Guisborough’s Josh Leather; County Durham’s Thomas Patrick Ward; Doncaster’s Dave Allen and Jason Cunningham; Sunderland’s Jordan King; Wales’ Rhys Evans, and Northumberland’s Lewis Scott.
