Choi heads Prizefighter bill


Recommended Posts

WBU Featherweight champion Choi Tseveenpurev is one of the first names to be confirmed for the next event in the Prizefighter series.


The Super Featherweights will get their first Prizefighter outing at York Hall, Bethnal Greenon November 20 and fans favourite Tseveenpurev heads the initial line-up for the 15th edition of Barry Hearn's eight-man, one-night tournaments, live on Sky Sports.


Known as The Mongolian Warrior, Tseveenpurev knocked out Derry Mathews in the fifth round of their title fight in Bolton to claim the belt in 2008, and has fought twice since, beating Lubos Priehradnik in July 2009 and Mickey Coveney this June.


Tseveenpurev - who was awarded with the title of 'State Honoured Athlete' in his native country by the President pf Mongolia - previously won the WBF title in 2006 and successfully defended it twice.


Joining the 39 year-old in the early line-up is Gary Buckland, the 24 year-old who pushed John Murray to the 11th round in their European Lightweight title fight in June and Northern Irishman Kevin O'Hara who lost a fight for the British Super Featherweight title in May.


The fourth fighter to sign up to the event, hot on the heels of Michael Sprott's victory in the sold-out Heavyweights IV night last Saturday, is Scott Lawton, a European and British title challenger.


The rest of the line up will be announced shortly.
