Felix Cash and Ellie Scotney look set to be confirmed as additions to a big pay-per-view undercard.
The duo, who are signed to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, are expected to be in action on October 8.
Cash (15-0, 10 KOs) has been out of the ring since February, when he survived two knockdowns to claim the vacant WBC International middleweight title against Magomed Madiev at Alexandra Palace in Muswell Hill, London, after his fight against Vaughan Alexander, set for July 9 at the O2 Arena on the undercard of Derek Chisora’s win over Kubrat Pulev in their rematch, was kiboshed at the 11th-hour due to him being ill.
But the 29-year-old is understood to be training towards a fight at the aforementioned Greenwich venue, exclusively live on DAZN worldwide and DAZN Pay-Per-View in the UK & Ireland, as part of the supporting cast to the catchweight clash between Chris Eubank Jr. and Conor Benn.
Tony Sims, the trainer of Benn and Cash, will have another couple of fighters on the bill after he revealed that six-time national amateur champion Maisey Rose Courtney will turn professional on the card alongside George Liddard.
Germany’s Denis Radovan (16-0-1, 8 KOs) is the man expected to be in the opposite corner to Cash as Hearn looks to pit his stable against the top talent pool of Wasserman, who promote Eubank Jr. and the co-promoters of the pay-per-view show, on the undercard.
Radovan would be the third consecutive undefeated fighter Cash has faced and is ranked number four in the world with the IBF at middleweight, having been to the UK once previously when Luke Blackledge retired in the fourth round against him –– incidentally, also at the O2 Arena –– on the undercard of Josh Taylor’s win over Regis Prograis back in October 2019.
Scotney, meanwhile, is trained by Shane McGuigan and has an unbeaten 5-0 record.
The 24-year-old, from Catford, claimed the WBA Inter-Continental super-bantamweight title against Jorgelina Guanini on the same card as Cash’s win against Madiev and defended it against Maria Cecilia Roman in May.
And now Scotney, who used to be a pupil at Adam Booth’s gym before moving to McGuigan, is expected to move to the next stage of her career when she challenges Mary Romero.
The Spaniard (8-2) has the European title in the 122-pound division and will defend it against the Londoner in a clash between two fighters that are on the cusp of world title shots.
