Night Of Champions
Showdown is back with a another big show for the summer, Friday 2nd September at the Pryzm (old Gatecrasher) Broad street Birmingham “The Night Of Champions” will be held.
I talked to the promoter Keith Webb about the show and he told me this,
“As the name suggests, it really is the ‘Night of Champions’ with 4 title defenses and a 5th vacant Super Middleweight belt up for grabs!
The 3 Fiaz brothers are fighting on the same bill and we’re in for some mouth-watering bouts!!
Sher Fiaz is defending his title against Brandon Short! It will be explosive as well as a technical display of boxing! Both boxers are undefeated with Showdown Entertainment, someone’s 0 has to go!!
Shamrez Fiaz will be looking to take Nico Ogbeide’s belt. Again, if you’re looking for an explosive technical display you will not be disappointed.
Juran Jones steps back in to the ring to defend his title against Kyle Unitt! Juran beat Kyle in the semi-final of Showdown’s Prizefighter April 2015 so this has grudge match written all over it!!
Ricky Grimshaw takes on Scott Clark! Two good lads who have both fought on previous shows and are now battling it out to become Showdown’s Super Middleweight Champion!
Showdown’s newest champion, Shaun Duffy defends his Heavyweight belt against Dan Podmore. Both hard working fighters so looking forward to seeing who comes out on top!
