All the details for Ultimate Boxxer 3, the latest edition of the modern tournament concept
The third edition of the eight-man Ultimate Boxxer tournament concept arrives with new broadcast partners and the prize of a promotional contract for the middleweight winner. There is prize money too but the main thing is the exposure.
The contenders are: 12-1 Grant Dennis; 10-0-1 Joe Hurn; 11-1 Tey-Lynn Jones; 6-0 Derrick Osaze; 10-0 betting favourite Keiron Conway; 5-0-1 Kaan Hawes; 7-1 Josh Groombridge and 5-0-1 Sean Phillips.
The tournament format is the same as Matchroom’s Prizefighter series in that we have three quarter-finals, two semis and a final, all contested over three three-minute rounds. There are undercard fights too and the concept as a whole mixes boxing action with music and celebrity guests.
The show takes place on Friday May 10.
Indigo at The O2, London.
Coverage is simulcast on BT Sport and BoxNation from 7pm UK time.
The main attractions are Shakan Pitters, the winner of Ultimate Boxxer 2, and former Love Island star Idris Virgo.
