Main event on an action-packed evening of boxing in the stunning Monaco setting sees dangerous Russian Denis Lebedev (31-2, 23 KO’s) defend his WBA Cruiserweight World title against undefeated American Mike Wilson (19-0, 8 KO’s).

China’s 20-0 Heavyweight star Zhilei Zhang puts his WBO Oriental title on the line against Russia’s Alexander Ustinov (34-2, 25 KO’s) in the toughest fight of his career.

WBA Super-Flyweight World Champion Kal Yafai (24-0, 15 KO’s) aims to maintain his undefeated record when he makes the fourth defence of his crown against Mexico’s Israel Gonzalez (23-2, 10 KO’s). Yafai stopped another Mexican, David Carmona, in seven rounds on his US debut in California in May and is promising another explosive performance on November 24.
