Murphy Defends Title LIVE On Eurosport


Ben Murphy defends his Southern Area Lightweight Title against the undefeated Tony Owen over 10 rounds at the Coronet Theatre in Southwark, London on Friday night.

British Eurosport will broadcast LIVE coverage of the fight which takes place at 8pm.

Murphy will go into the fight as favourite having boxed at a higher level, however may be rusty having not boxed competitively for a year. Despite this, Murphy will still be fit and will approach the fight in his usual ferocious manner, happy to steam into opponents and trade punches. The bout also holds added importance for the Hove fighter with a top-10 ranking at stake.

Owen has kept himself more active and will be fresh and confident. The bout will be a step-up for the bricklayer from Carshalton, however will be hoping his southpaw stance and six and-a-quarter inch height advantage will act in his favour.

Mickey Helliet the promoter of the fight, also manages both boxers has said himself it looks to be a 50-50 and could go either way. The winner of the fight is then likely to find themselves challenging for the British belt currently held by Anthony Crolla.

British Eurosport will broadcast LIVE coverage as well as action from the undercard fights.
