Also on the bill will be Craig Richards. Who boxes for the fourth time in the paid ranks and the Crystal Palace Middleweight has had an impressive run in his first year in the pro ranks. This will be Richards third fight at the famous east London venue
“Ahead of the Joshua vs. Martin fight in April we did our first ever public work-out at York Hall and the response was fantastic. The place was packed and there was a great atmosphere in there, said Eddie Hearn from Matchroom Sports.
“With so many fighters looking to get on the bill up and down the country. We decided that this would be a great way for a couple of the London boys to get out and do so in front of a big crowd at the York Hall. Which will be a free entry.
“We’re always looking for ways to bring new fans to the sport and the work-outs are great for that. People come down and see the fighters getting put through their paces and there’s more of a chance to meet them too. Add a couple of fights to the mix, and you give Ohara and Ted the chance to make new fans too.”
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 including George Groves, Chris Eubank Jr, Dillian Whyte, Anthony Ogogo and Conor Benn.
This is a great event for the family and boxing fans alike so make sure you arrive early to avoid disappointment. Doors will open at 4.30pm with the action getting underway at 5pm – entry is free and it’s a first-come, first-served basis.
