Katsidis-Mitchell official for May 15 at Upton Park

New, comments

Frank Warren still has some final touches to put on a massive May 15 card, the but British promoter is thinking big with his May 15 main event. Kevin Mitchell will get a chance at a dream when he fights Michael Katsidis at Upton Park, on the home grounds of the West Ham United football club.

Katsidis (26-2, 21 KO) and Mitchell (31-0, 23 KO) will fight for the interim WBO lightweight title. Warren is stacking an undercard, too, with his Olympic prospects and some heavyweight action.

  • Sam Sexton (13-1, 6 KO) v. Danny Williams (41-8, 31 KO)
  • Derek Chisora (12-0, 7 KO) v. TBA
  • James DeGale (6-0, 4 KO) v. TBA for a minor WBA trinket at 168, which of course will be hyped as if it's meaningful
  • Frankie Gavin (6-0, 5 KO) and Billy Joe Saunders (5-0, 3 KO) will also be in action once again
  • BoxRec has Matthew Hall (22-2, 15 KO) listed for action, too
