Sunny Edwards and Ryan Farrag will contest the WBO European super-flyweight title on a stacked MTK Global show at York Hall on October 26 – live on BoxNation.
London’s Edwards (8-0-KO3) and Liverpudlian Farrag (19-3-KO5) collide at the home of British boxing on a card that also includes world ranking fights for their MTK Global team-mates Neslan Machado and Michael McKinson.
Cuba’s Machado (14-0-KO8) fights for the WBA International super-bantamweight crown while McKinson (14-0-KO2) takes on popular local Sam McNess for the WBC Silver International welterweight belt.
In addition, a host of emerging stars form a lengthy undercard with elite Kazakh amateurs Sultan Zaurbek and Azhbenov Nurtas set to star alongside fellow debutants Roseanna Cox, Donovan Mortlock, Jamal Akay, Josh Adewale. Promising duo Mitchell Frearson and Dan Azeez also look to continue their winning starts as professionals.
MTK London promoter Lee Eaton said: “It’s great to be back at York Hall, which has played host to some of the great British fights in boxing history.
“Hopefully, we have another classic on our hands in the headline act of Edwards v Farrag with both men looking to get their hands on a major title before moving on to world level.
“MTK Global events just keep getting bigger and better and improvement is what it’s all about. We want to bring the fans exactly what they’re after.
“As well as the main event, it’s another stacked undercard with some truly world-class talent in Zaurbek and Nurtas. The two ranking fights involving Machado and McKinson will also be feisty affairs with so much on the line.
“It’s fantastic to be able to give so many of our promising fighters debuts on this stage. You look at someone like Roseanna Cox who has the potential to become an icon for female boxing and it’s great that journey is about to start.”
