After a series of Covid-19 related postponements, the European bantamweight title fight between champion Karim Guerfi and Edinburgh’s unbeaten Lee McGregor will take place at the University of Bolton Stadium on March 19.
Most recently moved from a February 6 event in Dubai that was cancelled due to flight restrictions, Guerfi-McGregor will share the spotlight with the vacant British lightweight title fight between Liam Walsh and Belfast’s Paul Hyland Jr, which was postponed earlier this month after the Cromer man tested positive for Covid-19.
“We’re delighted to continue our superb schedule in 2021 with yet another must-see MTK Fight Night event,” said MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton. “It was frustrating for everybody when these two fights couldn’t take place in February, but we’ve worked hard behind the scenes and it means that the boxers and the fans haven’t had to wait long at all for a new date.
“Both of these fights have all of the ingredients to be incredible battles, so I’m extremely excited to see how things unfold next month.”
