Two finely balanced 168lbs encounters have been added to Matchroom’s women’s world title triple-header on November 14.
Former world title challenger Jamie Cox will face Jack Cullen whilst unbeaten Scot John Docherty steps up against Blackpool’s seasoned Jack Arnfield, in support of Katie Taylor vs Miriam Gutierrez, Terri Harper vs Katharina Thanderz and Ebanie Bridges vs Rachel Ball.
Swindon southpaw Cox (25-2, 14 KOs) returns with a fresh coaching set-up after two years out the ring. “I’ve been out a while now, I’m looking forward to getting back in there. I’ve got a new set up with Tony Borg down in Wales which has given my boxing a new dimension which I’ll show in November,” said Cox.
‘Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver’ Cullen (18-2-1, 9 KOs) hopes to return to winning ways following a draw with Zak Chelli at Matchroom’s Fight Camp in August. “This is a big name in Jamie Cox, I couldn’t have asked for a better opponent in the circumstances. He comes to fight and as you know I bring it as well. It’ll make for a fan-friendly fight for those watching I’m sure,” said Cullen.
Hard-hitting Docherty (9-0, 7 KOs) is eyeing titles in 2021 but has Arnfield to negotiate first. “Jack’s experienced but I’m levels above him and I’ll show that come fight night. I’ll smash him to pieces,” said Docherty.
Now campaigning at 168lbs, Arnfield (25-3, 6 KOs) believes the extra poundage will be crucial. “I was a tall middleweight, the past 2-3 fights was a struggle but I’m feeling fit and healthier up a weight, which will reflect in my punch power. I’m not overlooking ‘The Doc’ but I’ve set myself bigger goals,” said Arnfield.
