Boxing Fight Schedule: February 7th / 8th, 2020
World Boxing News provides the latest boxing fight schedule of major bouts for February 7th and 8th of 2020.
On Friday in Panama, two interim belts are on the line as Daniel Matellon and Luis Concepcion compete in separate bouts.
Saturday sees a more packed schedule as Gary Russell Jr. puts his WBC featherweight title on the line once again.
The American makes only a fifth defense in five years as he battles Tugstsogt Nyambayar in Pennsylvania.
Also on the bill, Guillermo Rigondeaux bids to win the WBA understudy belt to Naoya Inoue’s full version.
Over in Germany, Firat Arslan aims to overhaul Bernard Hopkins as the oldest boxing champion of all time. The veteran from Turkey bids to dethrone South African Kevin Lerena of his IBO cruiserweight title.
Wilfredo Benetiz and Artem Dalakian defend their straps in Panama and Ukraine respectively, whilst over in England, Kell Brook returns for his first bout in over a year.
Brook looks to push towards a title shot at super-welterweight.
Also on the bill, Kid Galahad can seal a second chance at Josh Warrington with a win over Claudio Marrero. Galahad, who seemingly beat Warrington the first time they met, was left disappointed by the judges.
In a unification, Terri Harper puts her IBO super-featherweight belt up against Eva Wahlstrom’s WBC version.
Finally, Indiana hosts Mary McGee’s own promotion as she defends the IBF super-lightweight crown at the Civic Center.
