Willie “Big Bang” Casey and Mark Moran will kick off Prizefighter Super Bantamweights at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday May 29.
The draw for Barry Hearn’s latest eight-man, one night tournament was made by Darts legend and boxing fan Phil “The Power” Taylor ahead of the Whyte & Mackay Premier League Play-offs at Wembley Arena.
Unbeaten Irishman Casey has won four of his fives fights by knockout and issued a warning to the rest of the line-up, saying: “I’m not called Big Bang for nothing.” Liverpool’s Moran has been out of action for 13 months through injury and will face a stern test against the 28 year-old.
Esham Pickering stars

Former Commonwealth, European and British title holder Esham Pickering faces Barnsley’s Josh Wale in the second quarter-final with the winners of those two fights face each other in the opening semi-final.

The third quarter-final sees Commonwealth gold medallist Jamie Arthur face Welshman Robbie Turley, with unbeaten Ricky Owen facing Yorkshireman Gavin Reid in the final quarter-final.
Tickets for Prizefighter Super-Bantamweights are available now at £35 (unreserved), £60 (ringside) and £100 (VIP) – call Matchroom Sport on 01277 359900.
