VIP Boxing Presents: Hughie Fury VS Chris Norrad on Saturday 25th May 2019
Hennessy Sports, VIP Boxing, Infinitum and Channel 5 are proud to announce that Hughie Fury will be fighting on Saturday 25th May at O2 Victoria Warehouse, Manchester, exclusively live on Channel 5.
Hughie Fury to fight Chris Norrad at O2 Victoria Warehouse on Saturday 25th May
Hennessy Sports, Channel 5 and Infinitum, in association with VIP Promotions, are delighted to announce that former World Heavyweight title challenger Hughie Fury will make his long awaited return to the ring on Saturday 25th May at the O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, exclusively live on free-to-air Channel 5.
In the headline attraction the Manchester star returns to his home city to take on the undefeated Canadian Chris “The Natural” Norrad in a twelve round International Heavyweight contest, supported by rising star Alex Dilmaghani in an International Super-Featherweight contest and undefeated female sensation Savannah Marshall. This will be Fury’s first fight back in his home city of Manchester since his WBO World title challenge against Joseph Parker in September 2017.
The 24-year-old, trained by father Peter, still has plenty of time on his side and aims to get back into World title contention, but first he must deal with Norrad from Boiestown, New Brunswick, who has amassed a perfect record of 17 wins, no losses and eight knockouts.
Chief support on the card features Alex Dilmaghani from Worthing, Sussex, who takes on the Czech Republic’sMartin Parlagi. The 27-year-old southpaw has 18 wins and just one very early career points loss on his record and for the last five years has been plying his trade in Canada and Mexico - where he was Juan Manuel Marquez’s sparring partner for the Manny Pacquiao fights.
One of the top female boxers on the scene, Savannah Marshall will return to the ring as she comes ever closer to challenging for a world title. In 2012 Marshall became the first ever British female boxer to win gold at the China World Championships.
A cracking trade fight on the card sees Skelsmerdale’s Steve Brogan defend his Central Area Lightweight Championship when he collides with Glossop rival Adam Hague.
Completing the card will be Ellesmere Port super-lightweight Matty Fagan, unbeaten Middleweight welterweight Connor Lynch and Liverpool featherweight Marcel Braithwaite.
The O2 Victoria Warehouse play host to this huge sporting event, and it is most definitely not one that you want to miss out on. Doors expected to open 5pm, with the headline fight kicking off around 9pm.
Tickets are available via Skiddle priced at £40.00 for general tickets and £70.00 for ringside, get them here: skiddle.com/e/13546425
