SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11
MAIN CARD: 6:00 p.m. BST / 1:00 p.m. ET
Unbeaten welterweight star CONOR BENN returns to the ring this weekend against former world title challenger CHRIS ALGIERI live from the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool. BENN looks to cap off a busy 2021 with another statement victory having unanimously defeated Adrian Granados last time out, remaining undefeated and retaining his WBA Continental welterweight title. The unbeaten British prospect will be after an equally fruitful 2022 and potentially challenging for a first world title. ALGIERI is looking to catapult his name into contention and make another run for a world title, coming into the bout on a four-fight win streak - winning and defending the WBO International junior welterweight title on the way.
In the co-main event of the evening, Irish superstar KATIE TAYLOR defends her undisputed women’s lightweight crown against mandatory challenger FIRUZA SHARIPOVA. The Bray native’s fifth defence of the undisputed title, TAYLOR confidently beat Jennifer Han last time out to reach 19-0 and reinforce her dominance in the division. SHARIPOVA makes a big step up in Liverpool this weekend, looking to cause a big upset and snatch the undisputed lightweight crown from TAYLOR.
