Josh Denzel to front new Matchroom series, kicking off with Conor Benn and Dave Allen
Presenter Josh Denzel, previously with Labible’s Sportbible, will host a brand new Matchroom Boxing series titled ‘Born Fighter’ launching in the UK next week.
The series will consist of in-depth and intimate one-on-one interviews with Matchroom Boxing’s leading stable of fighters, shining a light on everything outside of the ring from family life and religion to the highs and lows of being a professional athlete.
‘Born Fighter’ will delve deep into the minds of some of the UK’s best up-and-coming fighters to give an insight into the side of boxing that fans never see and tell the stories that often go untold.
“I’m really forward to link up with Matchroom for this new series,” said Denzel. “We’ve been working together for a while now but it’s great to officially put pen to paper. I’ve been a big fan of the sport since I was kid and can’t wait to be able to share the stories of the fighters for the viewers.”
“It’s great to have Josh onboard creating new concepts to tell our fighter’s stories,” said Frank Smith, CEO of Matchroom Boxing. “This new series will only help evolve our content output for the fans to enjoy.”
Episode one features rising Welterweight prospect Conor ‘The Destroyer’ Benn, released Friday 12 April followed by the second episode with Heavyweight cult hero Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen on Wednesday 17.
