After battling to an entertaining draw on last month’s Anthony Yarde-Dec Spelman card, Mark Heffron and Denzel Bentley will once again attempt to eliminate one another for a crack at the British middleweight title in the main event of a November 13th Queensberry show.

Mark Heffron (25-1-1, 19KO’s) said: “I’m so pleased that this rematch has been arranged and I’m back in the ring so quickly. You will see a sharper Mark Heffron this time. I know I won the first fight, but in this second one, I’m planning on leaving no doubt.”
Denzel Bentley (13-0-1, 11KO’s) said: “Thanks to Frank for getting the rematch on for us straight away and giving me another chance to show the world why I’m the future of this division.”
Liam Williams, the only man to defeat Heffron in the latter’s 10-year professional career, currently holds said British middleweight title. Should he come out victorious in his expected title shot against Demetrius Andrade next year, the winner of this fight will likely fight for the vacant belt.
Per the press release, the card will also see Tommy Fury (3-0, 2 KO) test his mettle against TBA. The press release also calls the first Heffron-Bentley matchup “arguably the highlight of all post-lockdown boxing,” and I am truly impressed with the amount of work “arguably” is putting in here.
