Eddie Hearn has confirmed that he plans to host another summer series of boxing evenings called Fight Camp. Last year, Britain's biggest promoter decided to host four boxing evenings in the garden of Matchroom Boxing's headquarters on the outskirts of London due to coronavirus restrictions. The events were held without spectators.
Laurence Okolie (16-0, 13 KOs) immediately after an impressive win over Krzysztof Glowacki for the vacant WBO cruiserweight belt, said he would like to face IBF champion Mairis Briedis (27-1, 19 KOs) in a unification bout. The Briton also did not rule out a confrontation with the WBC champion Ilunga Makabu (28-2, 25 KOs). Former world champion Tony Bellew commented on the compatriot's plans in an interview with Sky Sports.
Eddie Hearn strongly believes that Lawrence Okolie (15-0, 12 KOs) will defeat Krzysztof Głowacki (31-2, 19 KOs) to win the vacant WBO cruiserweight belt. The British promoter said that he has even begun to negotiate a unification fight of his boxer and Ilunga Makabu (28-2, 25 KOs), who owns the WBC championship belt.
Interim WBC heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin admitted that he was greatly annoyed by former cruiserweight champion Marco Huck. In 2012, a Russian defeated a German of Bosnian descent by a majority decision.
The fight of Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) and Anthony Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) has not yet been officially announced, but Eddie Hearn assures that this fight for four heavyweight titles will definitely take place this summer. Bookmakers have already started accepting bets on this fight, and in their opinion, the King of the Gypsies has more chances to become the undisputed champion.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is open to working with WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs). The former king of the P4P rankings even says he will be happy to help the Briton prepare for the unification fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs).
6,000 fans will watch Saturday's fight of Artur Beterbiev (15-0, 15 KOs) and Adam Dines (19-1-1, 10 KOs) live. The fight will be the main event of the evening organized at the Megasport Arena in Moscow.
