Fast growing boxing promotional outfit Assassin has announced Ben Jones is to headline its upcoming show at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Mayfair, London on March 4th.
The Crawley-based fighter, who has shared the ring with current IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby and two-time world title challenger Stephen Smith, will fight for the WBC international featherweight title on a show hosted by Assassin Boxing founder Kaz Evans.
Jones is hoping to get his chance to challenge for major honours this year, in a featherweight division of superb fighters which includes Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz. The division was once dominated by the notorious Prince Naseem Hamed.
The show, organised by Assassin is scheduled for March 4th and features some of boxing’s most exciting prospects. Debutants will include Alfie Best Jr at featherweight and middleweight Josh Douglas, who is announcing himself onto the professional stage in 2017. The talented boxer recently announced plans for a string of fights in 2017 under the Assassin brand, with bouts scheduled for Bournemouth, Brighton and London, all in the first quarter of 2017.
Also flying the middleweight flag is Slovakian boxer Vladimir Belujsky and Max Wicks who will both be looking to add wins to their record. The card will also feature undefeated fighters Sam Jones at Light Welterweight and Bobby Gunn Jr at Super Middleweight who will both be hoping to extend their unbeaten run.
Assassin founder, Kaz Evans said: “This is a chance for Ben to shine under the lights. He’s shown what he can do countless times and we think he can take things to the next level in 2017; winning the WBC international belt is a key part of that process. The London show should be a good night of entertainment in a great venue and should act as a benchmark for future shows.”
