Chisorah-Haye: Undercard fighters announced!

Liam 'Beefy' Smith.
Three top British fighters have already been confirmed to fight on the undercard of the controversial bout between David Haye and Dereck Chisora on July 14th. These men are Frankie Gavin, Matthew Hall.

It was confirmed at the press conference that all three of these fighters will involved in a title bout at Upton Park next month. Gavin will be competing against an un-named opponent for the WBO European title. Hall is not contesting for such a big title but he is fighting a very talented, young German prospect named Jack Culcay. The title on the line is the WBA international light-middleweight title.

Probably the most known fighter on the undercard of the show is exciting undefeated Commonwealth champ Liam Smith. He takes on Frenchman Sebastian Cornu for the WBO European super-featherweight title.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for me to showcase my talent on the biggest show of the year, in front of a massive crowd, live on BoxNation, it’s just a dream for me and I can’t wait for it," said Walsh.

And, don't forget, there is also one other very big fight that poses as chief-support on July 14th. Alexander Povetkin Vs Hasim Rahman for the WBA world heavyweight title. There have been rumours that the winner of this match-up will go on to face the winner of Haye Vs Chisora later this year. 

Also announced at the press conference was the tie-up between BoxNation and venerated charity Nordoff Robins. BoxNation confirmed that it will be making charitable donations to the charity and there will also be a charitable collection at the show at Upton Park on July 14th.
