According to reports, Woodhouse was going to fight Frankie Gavin, but Hibbert’s promoter Carl Greaves said that he and Bull had already made a verbal agreement on Woodhouse-Hibbert.
“Dennis Hobson offered Frankie Gavin to Woodhouse but Stefy Bull and myself had originally agreed verbally to do the fight with John Wayne Hibbert. It was a good offer on both sides,” explained Greaves to Boxing Social.
Woodhouse and Hibbert have a bit of beef since the two have been jabbing at each other a lot on social media. Greaves is expecting a good fight but ultimately sees his fighter outboxing the ex-footballer.
“It will be a good fight. Both former champions. Woodhouse is a former British champion and Hibbert is a former commonwealth champion and WBC International Champion. Hibbert will outbox him and beat him by points,” predicted Greaves.
