Hennessy Sports promotes a night of Championship boxing


London (29 May) Mick Hennessy has announced today that he will be promoting a night of championship boxing at Glow, Bluewater, on Saturday 8th June.

Headlining the event will be the 2008 Olympic Gold Medallist James DeGale MBE, defending his WBC Silver super-middleweight title against Croatian fighter Stjepan Bozic.  

“I’m excited to be boxing at Glow again, it was a tremendous atmosphere for my last fight and it’s a great venue to headline at,” DeGale said.  

“This year is going to be a big year for me, I’m looking to be the first ever British Olympic Gold Medallist who goes on and wins a professional world title and I just want to show my fans and especially the British fight fans what I’m made of." 


This will be James’s second fight of 2013, announced just 12 days after demolishing Sebastien Demers on his North American debut.  

DeGale was originally scheduled to defend his title against Alexander Brand at Glow, Bluewater, in March and now faces Bozic at the same venue - live on Channel 5 in the UK.  

The Slovenian-born Croatian has shared the ring against former middle and super-middleweight world champion Arthur Abraham, losing the contest due to a badly injured left hand from hitting Abraham’s right elbow in the second-round.  

He has also fought for the WBA World super-middleweight title against Dimitri Sartison, only to be stopped on the advice of the ring doctor for a badly swollen left eye.  

He is a former WBA Inter-Continental champion and boasts 26 wins with 17 knockouts and has won his last two contests by way of knockout.  

But, the man known as ’Chunky’ has vowed to make 2013 his year, after dominating former IBO super-middleweight champion Fulgencio Zuniga in Hull back in December -  now after a second-round knockout of Demers and the June 8th fight on the horizon, James is building momentum towards a world title opportunity and isn’t taking anyone lightly.  

"I’m not overlooking anyone, whoever gets put in front of me I’m training for like it was a world title fight," DeGale said.  

"I know that there are big names out there, but the first thing I have to do is take care of Stjepan Bozic on June 8th.  

"I’m the WBC Silver champion and ranked highly with the world governing bodies, I’m aiming to put on a great show at Glow, Bluewater and if either Froch or Groves feel ready for a domestic super fight I hope they realise that I’m ready for them too - let’s get it on."  

Supporting James at Glow will be WBC International super-bantamweight champion Kid Galahad, son of the legend, middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr in his 10th professional fight and current World Youth Super-heavyweight champion Hughie Fury in his fifth professional contest.  

The undercard will also feature Sammy Cantwell from Bexleyheath, Peter McDonagh from Bermondsey,  Dani Davis of Croydon and Eli Green from Guildford.
