Murphy Defends Title On Eurosport


A contender for fight-of-the-year is coming to television screens across Europe this week.

Promoter Mickey Hellliet shows have attracted sell-out crowds and Eurosport will be screening the action live from his next promotion at The Coronet on Friday night (Nov 25).

Helliet’s last show at the venue in September was topped by Gavin Tait edging out Chas Symonds in an absolute thriller – and this week’s bill-topper promises even more thrills.

There’s everything to fight for when top-10 ranked Ben Murphy defends his Southern Area lightweight championship against unbeaten Tony Owen.


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.
