Billericay Middleweight prospect George Liddard signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing at the start of 2023.
Trained by two-time Lightweight World Title Challenger Kevin Mitchell out of the Matchroom Boxing Elite Gym, Liddard clinched four National Titles and two International Gold Medals during an impressive stint as an amateur.
Liddard caught the eye with an impressive professional debut on the undercard of Dillian Whyte-Jermaine Franklin at the back end of 2022 and made it successive stoppages in March 2023 in Liverpool.
Fresh from celebrating West Ham's Europa Conference League final triumph, it was cause for further celebrations for Liddard soon after after demolishing Nikolas Dzurnak inside the first round to move to 3-0 in June.
The Billericay Bomber headlined the Before the Bell segment of Anthony Joshua-Robert Helenius against Bas Oosterweghel in an absolute war. His KO streak came to an end but his reputation soared again with another impressive display.
Liddard was back out a month later on the undercard of Jai Opetaia-Jordan Thompson, headlining the Before the Bell segment once again with a dominant points victory over Peter Kramer.
