Denel Bentley and Danny Dignum will go into battle at York Hall on May 11 with the WBO International middleweight title on the line.

The Battersea Boy will take on the Basildon Boy in what is near certain to be a thrilling scrap in Bethnal Green, with the winner propelled right back in the rankings.

Former WBO European champion Dignum, 32, has been contending with inactivity in recent times, with his last fights coming in March and April of 2023 with victories over Dustin Amman and Lukasz Maciec respectively.

Previously, Dignum (16-1-1, 9 KOs), was also defeated by Alimkhanuly in a challenge for the WBO Interim world title in May 2022.
