The Magnificent Seven fight again

Promoter Frank Warren has assembled an all-star line-up and returns to the Liverpool Echo Arena with a blockbuster multi-title show title ‘The Magnificent Seven Fight Again’ on Saturday 25th October featuring some of the best talent in British boxing, which will be show live in the UK on Boxnation.

Paul Butler

Paul ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ Butler

Undefeated Paul Butler tops the bill following his fantastic win over Stuart Hall to claim the IBF World Bantamweight title in June.  Butler aims to become the first British fighter in over a century – since the great Bob Fitzsimmons – to win a second world title in a lighter division.  Butler vacated the IBF crown shortly after his win and moved back to the super-flyweight division as he builds towards a second world title shot and will now feature in a major championship contest with the challenger to be announced.

Any big show in Liverpool wouldn’t be complete without at least one member of the fighting Smith family in action and big hitting Liam Smith will be in action to oblige with his crucial third defence of his British Light-Middleweight title against Navid Mansouri as he looks to make the prized Lonsdale belt his own property in front of his home fans. The 26-year-old, who also holds the Commonwealth title, has looked sensational since winning the British title against Erick Ochieng last September, halting Mark Thompson and Jason Welborn in back-to-back title defences.  Mansouri, was due to face Smith last time out in Manchester, but withdrew injured.

Liam 'Beefy' Smith

Another Liverpool lad in action will be Derry Matthews, Mathews dethroned British champion Martin Gethin to take the Lonsdale belt in May, but was unable to defend it against Terry Flanagan last month in Manchester because of a perforated ear drum and vacated the belt. He challenges for the Vacant WBA International Lightweight Championship, against an as yet unnamed opponent.

Newly crowned British Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan stopped former champion Gethin inside seven rounds to claim the Lonsdale belt and now opens his account when he makes the first defence of the title.  The Manchester hot-shot, now undefeated in 25 fights, is one of the most exciting fighters in Britain with his all-action style.

Flyweight star Kevin Satchell has a dream opportunity to be crowned champion of Europe in front of his own fans when he takes on the tough reigning champion Valery Yanchy.  Unbeaten Satchell, who also holds the British and Commonwealth titles, aims to dethrone Yanchy in only his 13th pro fight to hold all three belts.

Undefeated Chris Eubank Jnr takes another step as he aims to fill his famous father’s shoes when he will be in action in and eight-rounder as he builds towards his first title challenge. 2012 Team GB Olympic Captain Tom Stalker will also be in action in an eight round contest.
