Phil Jay 02/03/2013

World Boxing News will be scoring the IBO welterweight title bout tonight as belt holder Chris Van Heerden puts his title on the line against Britain’s Matthew Hatton at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, South Africa.

SA native Van Heerden, 25, makes the second defence of the strap after a convincing win over Sebastian Lujan last June, whilst Hatton attempts to claim a recognised title at the third time of asking following a draw with Lovemore Ndou and a loss to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Log on to the WBN website from around 10.30pm (SA) and 8.30pm (UK) to follow the action as it happens.
