Louis Greene will defend the Commonwealth super-welterweight title against Sam Gilley on October 21, live on Sky Sports.
Commonwealth super-welterweight champion Greene makes a third defence of his title against Gilley on the undercard of Joshua Buatsi’s all London light-heavyweight clash with Dan Azeez at the O2 Arena.
Greene scored a fifth-round knockout victory to win the Commonwealth title in November of last year and defended it in May with another thunderous stoppage victory, travelling from Kent to challenger Paul Kean’s home city of Dundee and leaving nothing to the judges as he ended the Scotsman’s night in the sixth round.
English super-welterweight champion Gilley, fighting out of Walthamstow, booked this shot at Greene’s Commonwealth title in June, when he landed a blistering body-shot knockout of Ellis Corrie at London’s historic York Hall in what was the third stoppage victory in his last four outings.
Tokyo Olympic bronze medallist Karriss Artingstall is also confirmed for the card, heading to The O2 in London for what will be her fifth professional outing and her second time competing over eight rounds as she works her way up the rankings and towards title contention. Her opponent will be revealed in the near future.
Sparks are set to fly in a 10-round super-welterweight encounter when Michael Hennessy – son of veteran British boxing manager Mick Hennessy and brother to recent BOXXER signing Fran Hennessy – meets an opponent with an equally deep British boxing heritage: Harley Benn, son of the legendary Nigel Benn.
The main event sees a decade-long friendship put to one side when top light-heavyweights Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez put their unbeaten records on the line in tremendous contest with world-level implications.
Plus the British cruiserweight championship is on the line when defending champion Mikael Lawal meets bitter rival Isaac Chamberlain at last, with the pair aiming to settle their differences in explosive fashion when they finally meet in the ring.
