Ted Cheeseman was forced to go face-to-face with a member of the Matchroom team under a sheet on Thursday after opponent Asinia ‘D’Ghost’ Byfield failed to show.
The pair will battle it out for the vacant British Super-Welterweight title in one of the most highly-anticipated domestic matchups of the year on October 27.
‘The Big Cheese’ has been making a name for himself in the 154lbs division. Cheeseman has notable wins over Carson Jones and most recently Paul Upton.
A fight with rising star Anthony Fowler could await for the winner of the Lord Lonsdale belt.
Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn announced the Copper Box event, which will see John Ryder topping the bill in a WBA final eliminator.
A win for Ryder over Andrey Sirotkin will push ‘The Gorilla’ further towards a rematch with Rocky Fielding for the ‘Regular’ strap.
Also on the bill, Ryan Doyle looks to build on his shock win over Reece Bellotti. Doyle defends his Commonwealth Featherweight belt against the talented and undefeated Jordan Gill.
Doyle hit the big time when he stopped Bellotti after five epic rounds at York Hall in June. The champion isn’t wasting anytime as he jumps straight into another banger with Dave Coldwell’s 21-0 prospect.
Luke Watkins and Isaac Chamberlain meet in a crunch Cruiserweight contest. Both men look to move on from first career losses to rising star Lawrence Okolie.
Jake Ball begins life under new trainer Dominic Ingle with a WBA Inter-Continental Light-Heavyweight title fight with Craig ‘Spider’ Richards.
There’s action elsewhere from Wokingham Middleweight Felix Cash. Brentwood Super-Featherweight Martin J Ward also stars.
Watford Featherweight Reece Bellotti, Canning Town Light-Heavy Charlie Duffield and Mill Hill Heavyweight George Fox hold places on the Sky Sports bill.
