Helliet hopes the winner will go on to challenge British 9st 9lbs boss Anthony ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla.
Murphy, a pint-sized powerhouse from Hove, has an exciting, all-action style. He tears into his ring rivals aiming to overwhelm them with non-stop, two-fisted attacks, but Carshalton ticket-seller Owen will be aiming to prove size matters.
Owen will have a height advantage of more than six inches in the 10-round contest and will be looking to use the slick southpaw skills that have taken him to 12 straight wins as a professional to claim the belt.
Ryan Barrett, formerly a challenger for British and WBU ‘world’ honours, boxes Dan Stewart in a good-looking light-welterweight match up – and the pick of the undercard fights pits light-welterweights Phil Gill and Floyd ‘Pac Man’ Moore against each other.
Gill, from Waltham Abbey, knows only one way to fight – marching forward throwing bombs. That has taken him to a 13-fight unbeaten record, but ‘Pac Man’ reckons he has the punching power to take away Gill’s ‘0.’
Moore’s record shows a pair of stunning one-punch knock-outs and reckons he could be one shot away from the best win of his career.
