The matchups for Friday’s MTK Global Golden Contract tournament semifinals are set in both the 126- and 140-pound tournaments.
The card will stream live on ESPN+ for US viewers at 2:30 pm ET, and will also air on Sky Sports Action in the UK at 7:30 pm local time.
Here are the pairings for the featherweights:
- Ryan Walsh (25-2-2, 12 KO) vs Tyrone McCullagh (14-0, 6 KO)
- Leigh Wood (23-1, 13 KO) vs Jazza Dickens (28-3, 11 KO)
And here are the matchups at junior welterweight:
- Ohara Davies (20-2, 15 KO) vs Jeff Ofori (10-1-1, 3 KO)
- Tyrone McKenna (20-1-1, 6 KO) vs Mohamed Mimoune (22-3, 3 KO)
All fights are set for 10 rounds.
The featherweight side is pretty clearly the best overall collection fighters of the three Golden Contract tournaments (the light heavyweights return Mar. 20 for their semifinal bouts), with Walsh and Wood both domestic titleholders and McCullagh and Dickens solid domestic-level fighters at the very least.
The junior welterweights aren’t bad, though, with McKenna-Mimoune a solid matchup. Davies will be a clear favorite over Ofori, who entered the tournament on late notice but won in the first round.
