New foes for Macklin, Konecny

Some changes in promoter Frank Warren’s big September 18 show in Birmingham, England. Following the recent withdrawals of Darren Barker and Ryan Rhodes from their fights against Matthew Macklin and Lukas Konecny, respectively, Warren has been working hard to keep one of the biggest shows of his career together. The Hall of Fame promoter can now confirm that Macklin will face Georgian Shalva Jomardashvili for the vacant European middleweight title, while Manchester’s Matthew Hall gets a golden opportunity against Konecny for the vacant European light middleweight title.

The card also features Nathan Cleverly’s WBO light heavyweight title eliminator against Karo Murat; Kell Brook’s WBO Intercontinental welterweight title defense against Michael Jennings; Enzo Maccarinelli’s European cruiserweight title defense against Alexander Frenkel; British heavyweight champion Derek Chisora against Commonwealth champion Sam Sexton; James DeGale’s eliminator for the British super middleweight title against Carl Dilks; Frankie Gavin versus Michael Kelly for the vacant Irish 140lb championship and Don Broadhurst against Najah Ali for the vacant IM bantamweight belt.

The event, billed as “Magnificent Seven” will be broadcast live on Sky Box Office.
