Wasserman boxing returns this Friday for a second consecutive week of airing live on Channel 5. The free to air boxing will be shown live from York Hall- to which is considered the staple of British boxing by many.
The show is likely to attract huge viewership due it been readily accessible on national television, with Wasserman confirming that last week’s Bolton card attracted 1.5 million viewers.
Harlem Eubank (16-0, 6 KOs) is set to headline the Wasserman card against Argentinian Miguel Antin (20-11-1, 8 KOs), who is a late replacement opponent. A similar occurrence happened last week on Wasserman’s card with Lyndon Arthur, who took on Boris Crighton on late notice due to his opponent failing the pre-fight medical examination. Eubank was previously set to take on the Mexican Christian Uruzquietq (21-5-2, 8 KOs) in their super lightweight contest. Eubanks last contest saw him dominate Liverpudlian Tom Farrell (21-6, 5 KOs), also at York Hall, allowing him to go into this bout with great confidence despite the opponent change.
Exciting heavyweight prospect Matty Harris (4-0, 3 KOs) is also on the card and undoubtedly one to watch in the division. The 23-year-old will take on Milos Veletic (2-2, 1 KO) and looks to climb his way to the top of the division, having already sparred the likes of Derek Chisora (33-13, 23 KOs) and Dillian Whyte (29-3, 19 KOs). Harris stands out from the crowd at a huge six foot nine however prides himself on not moving like the typical huge heavyweight. Harris is going into the bout after stopping his last three opponents in the first round and will look to showcase his talent on Friday night to the large-scale television audience.
Also on the card:
Popular German fighter Sophie Alisch (8-0, 1 KO) will take on Bec Connolly (3-18, 0 KOs) in her UK debut.
Cruiserweights Nick Parpa (10-1, 6 KOs) and Michael Webster (7-0, 5 KOs) will clash.
Prospect Codie Smith will make his pro debut, after recently signing with Wasserman.
