Matchroom Boxing Announce Free Public Event As Part Joshua-breazeale Open Work-out

June 14 2016

Unbeaten Londoners Ohara Davies and Craig Richards will box at York Hall in Bethnal Green on Tuesday June 21 as part of the free-entry public work-out ahead of Anthony Joshua’s IBF World Heavyweight title defence against Dominic Breazeale at The O2 on Saturday June 25, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Davies landed the English Lightweight title in Greenwich in April when he stopped Andy Keates in four rounds on the undercard of Joshua’s World title win over Charles Martin at The O2.

Davies will be looking to move into double figures for stoppage wins in his 12th pro outing, with the Hackney man already on a run of five stoppage wins as the 24 year old continues to cause waves in the 135lbs division.

Richards boxes for the fourth time in the paid ranks and the Crystal Palace Middleweight has impressed in his first year in the pros and fights at the famous east London venue for the third time.

Davies and Richards’ fights are added to an action-packed night at York Hall where Joshua and Breazeale perform public workouts alongside stars on the undercard George Groves, Chris Eubank Jr, Dillian Whyte, Anthony Ogogo and Conor Benn.

Doors will open at 4.30pm with the action getting underway at 5pm – entry is free and first-come, first-served.
