Who is on the Jordan Gill vs Zelfa Barrett undercard? 


We've got plenty of Manchester interest on the undercard. There's Anthony Crolla-trained Rhiannon Dixon, an unbeaten fighter from Warrington, looking to win her first world title when she takes on Argentina’s Karen Elizabeth Carabajal for the vacant WBO super-lightweight crown. Crolla's younger brother William is also on the card, the 25-year-old pencilled in for his fifth professional contest. And Michael Gomez Jnr, son of the 'Manchester Mexican' of the same name, defends his English super-featherweight title against Kane Baker.

There was so much to go at on a crazy Saturday night of boxing in Britain as Frank Warren’s Magnificent Seven in Manchester show went head-to-head with Boxxer’s Wolves at the Door in, you guessed it, Wolverhampton.

But without doubt the story of the night took place up north, in the very last fight of Warren’s gargantuan bill, as Nathan Heaney claimed the British title via majority decision over Denzel Bentley. Firstly, an apology. In my preview for the show written in these pages, I suggested that Bentley would not only win, but win well inside the distance. I was not alone in such a pick.

But Heaney, with one of the most heartbreaking back-stories in British boxing, made us all look silly with a spirited display, roared on by his legion of fans at the Manchester Arena. These are strange times for boxing, with few crossover stars and widespread infection via unlicensed influencer fights, but on Saturday Heaney served up a reminder of what this sport is all about. There were goosebumps watching him celebrate the result, face down in the centre of the ring. Your old man would be so proud of you, and so should British boxing.  (courtesy of Boxing News)
