- 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist Galal Yafai Headlines For The First Time
- WBC International Flyweight Champion Tops “Next Gen” In Birmingham
- Cyrus Pattinson vs Conah Walker Features On Aug 19 DAZN Show
After a fight of the year contender with one-time British champion Chris Jenkins in March, WBA #15 Cyrus Pattinson (6-0, 4 KOs) has his next fight date and opponent locked in.
The 29-year-old Northumberland prospect will return to action on a Matchroom Boxing “Next Gen” card slated for August 19 in Birmingham live on DAZN.
The WBA International champion will face Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker (11-2-1, 3 KOs) over ten rounds at Welterweight, NoSmokeSport.com has learnt.
Walker, who will command sizeable local support, has lost twice in his last three outings to Samuel Antwi and Kane Gardner but both contests were tight and exciting.
Although this may be a sideward step, there is no doubt that it will be another entertaining scrap to watch.
Pattinson impressively dominated and stopped Jorick Luisetto inside six rounds to claim the IBO Continental strap last September. Luisetto lost a 78-75 points decision to Florian Marku in late 2021.
The former Team GB star then showed immense heart in his back-and-forth, all-action nine-round war with Jenkins which headlined a Newcastle Next Gen in March.
Cyrus Pattinson vs Conah Walker Card Details
Pattinson now takes the co-feature slot on a card expected to be headlined by 2020 Olympic Gold Medallist and current WBC International Flyweight champion, Galal Yafai.
The opponent for Yafai is unknown as of yet. English Heavyweight champion Solomon Dacres amongst other Midlands-based Matchroom fighters are expected to feature.
This could include Aaron Bowen, Muhammad Ali and Nico Leivars.
