BoxNation have a packed schedule for early next year!

By Jack Price @PriceyJ97.

The home of boxing BoxNation (SKY 437/VIRGIN 546) have proved once again why they're the best boxing channel in Great Britain with the announcement of some massive fights for the new year.

The action begins on January 18th with a British welterweight clash between Frankie Gavin and Jason Welborn on Friday 18th January. The show from Walsall Town Hall also features two more domestic title bouts; The vacant British lightweight title is on the line when Martin Gethin takes on Ben Murphy, plus a Midlands Area cruiserweight title fight between Chris Keane and Shane McPhilbin.

A week later on Saturday 26th January Lucas Matthysse defends his WBC interim light-welterweight championship against Hank Lundy live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. 

The big fights continue on February 2ndwhen Yoan Pablo Hernandez defends his IBF cruiserweight world title against Eric Fields with action including Eduard Gutknecht and Juergen Braehmer on the undercard.

The biggest fight to have been announced so far is Danny Garcia Vs Zab Judah on February 9th. Garcia, the man who demolished Amir Khan back in July, is the current WBA super and WBC world light-welterweight and one of the most exciting fighters in the world today. But he faces a tough test against Judah, who is a six-time world champion. 

The tension is there already between these two men after Danny's controversial and outspoken father and trainer Angel Garcia infuriated Judah at the first press conference  and caused an aggressive verbal argument between the fighters and their teams.

March starts off with Daniel Ponce De Leon making the first defence making the first defence of his WBC featherweight world title against Puerto Rican Jason Velez. 

The furthest away fight on the list at this current time is Bernard Hopkins Vs Tavoris Cloud for the IBF light-heavyweight world titleon March 9th live from the Barclays Center. 

So as you can see, the schedule is already packed for the new year and these are just a few of the fights that have been announced so far. We can expect a lot more fights to be added to this busy schedule in the coming weeks.
