Fight Night Program – Week of Sept. 1-6

Fighters Network

The weekend is approaching, and from Friday to Sunday it will be “fight-o-clock” somewhere in the world. Every Thursday, The Ring will bring you the most up-to-date information on the most relevant fights you need to see in this week-at-a-glance, one-stop enhanced fight schedule. A quick checklist for the cognoscenti, a useful nuts-and-bolts guide for the boxing neophyte is what we’re aiming at.

Here are this week’s most relevant fights:

Friday, September 1 – Bolton Whites Hotel, Bolton, England

Lyndon Arthur vs. Braian Suarez – light heavyweight – 12 rounds

Argentina’s Suarez was supposed to take on Arthur back in March in Bolton, and made it all the way to the weigh-in when a diagnosis of sinusitis came in at the last minute and forced him to scratch his plans. He came in a little over half a pound above the divisional limit for the light heavyweight division, but the fight will go on nonetheless.

Also on this card:

Samuel Antwi vs. Mason Cartwright – junior middleweight – 12 rounds

Codie Smith vs. Eliecer Quezada – featherweight – 8 rounds

Ben Marksby vs. Jordan Ellison – junior welterweight – 6 rounds

Ashley Marron vs. Petar Aleksandrov – junior middleweight – 4 rounds


Friday, September 1 – Graakjaer Arena, Holstebro, Denmark  

Dina Thorslund vs. Yuliahn Luna – women’s bantamweight – 10 rounds

The lower weight divisions is where the best boxing can be found. And it is also true for women’s boxing. This dream matchup will produce the inaugural Ring magazine bantamweight champion, and a truly deserving one she will be. Don’t miss it if you can.

Also on this card:

Hebert Conceicao Sousa vs. Robert Talarek – super middleweight – 8 rounds

Jacob Bank vs. Almir Skrijelj – super middleweights – 8 rounds

Payman Akbari vs. Pietro Caputo – lightweight – 6 rounds

Steven Cairns vs. Marian Wesolowski – junior welterweight – 6 rounds

Friday, September 1 – Metro City, Northbridge, Australia

Jordan Laruccia vs. Fano Kori – junior middleweight – 8 rounds

Kazeem Soyoye vs. Rivo Kundimang – lightweight – 8 rounds


Saturday, September 2 – Manchester Arena, Manchester, UK

Liam Smith vs. Chris Eubank Jr. – middleweight – 12 rounds

Smith scored the mild upset in the first fight, and the bad blood has been growing between these two in what is already shaping up as a grudge match with trilogy potential. Should be fun to watch how it develops.

Also on this card:

Mark Heffron vs. Jack Cullen – super middleweight – 12 rounds

Adam Azim vs. Aram Faniian – junior welterweight – 10 rounds

Frazer Clarke vs. Dave Allen – heavyweight – 10 rounds
