The unbeaten duo met at nightfall as they kicked off fight week with another respectful but intense face-off to get this week’s build-up underway.

Both men will take part in a media work out this afternoon before meeting fight fans and participating in live radio interviews at Hero sports bar next to the American Airlines Center tomorrow evening (Wednesday July 24) from 6pm.

The sport was rocked today by the tragic passing of Maxim Dadashev following his fight in Maryland on Saturday night. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Matchroom Boxing are with Maxim’s family, friends and team, our colleagues at Top Rank and his opponent Subriel Matias.
