Bad Left Hook Live Boxing Results and Commentary: Matthew Hatton v. Yuriy Nuzhnenko

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Hattonnuzhnenko_medium Today at 5pm EDT, Bad Left Hook will provide live, round-by-round coverage, scoring and analysis of the European welterweight title fight between Matthew Hatton (39-4-2, 15 KO) and Yuriy Nuzhnenko (30-1-1, 14 KO) from the Bolton Arena, live on Sky Sports.

The co-feature will see British prospect Scott Quigg (18-0, 12 KO) take an easy fight against Gavin Reid (6-6-1, 3 KO). The 21-year-old Quigg has real talent, but still hasn't faced a legitimate opponent, and he's not starting today.

Hatton-Nuzhnenko is maybe the most evenly-matched fight of the weekend, and could be one of the best, too. Neither have big power, but Nuzhnenko should be expected to fight hard given that he's on the road for this title shot, and Hatton always fights hard.

Dave Oakes of The Boxing Bulletin previewed the fight, as did we the other day.
