The summer month of July usually throws up some great boxing action around the world and July 2013 certainly keeps the tradition going with plenty of bouts to look forward to.
This weekend will see the start, as the popular prize fighter series makes a return in what has been a profitable tournament for me in the past with several outright winners.
One of those winners came last time out in the prize fighter Cruiser-weights which was won in great style by Wadi Camacho (a P4P winner at 4/1).
This time around it’s down the weight divisions as the Light-Welterweights make a return at York Hall with action getting under way around 8:00pm on SkySports 1.
Also at York Hall, we will see Kevin Mitchell make a belated return to the ring after his loss against Ricky Burns.
He will take on Sebastien Benito in what should be a routine win with an early stoppage looking very likely by the man from Essex.
Another venue that will see action is the Echo Arena, Liverpool as local Heavyweight contender David Price looks for revenge against American Tony Thompson live on Boxnation.
David was on a crest of a wave and moving rapidly up the ranks before his first bout against Tony Thompson, a fight in which he was expected to perform a number on the Washington DC man.
However typical of the heavyweight division the wave went somewhat flat, as Thompson caught Price in the second round with a clubbing right hand around his ear knocking all senses from the huge frame of the 6ft 8in Englishman which he could not recover from leaving him with a perforated ear drum.
Many fighters would look at taking a bit of a step back to recover from such a loss, but David has demanded a rematch and with the help of former heavyweight great Lennox Lewis, he will be looking to get things back on track on Saturday night at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. This will be in front of a packed crowd of fellow scousers (natives of Liverpool for anyone outside the UK). Chief support at the Echo Arena will be provided by Darren Hamilton against Adil Anwar in a British light welterweight title fight.
There is also action from Dortmund, Germany this weekend as World Middleweight number three Felix Sturm will want to put on a good performance against Pedrag Radosevic to get what has been a great career back on track, after back to back losses (the last ending up a no contest after a later failed drugs test by opponent Sam Soliman).
That’s about it for this weekend’s P4P Boxing action.
Until next Saturday
All The Best,
