About The Event

Unbeaten Hatfield hero Saunders (26-0, 12 KOs) is aiming for a fourth successive defence of the belt he won against Andy Lee back in December 2015, when he dropped the Irishman twice on route to a points victory.

Murray (36-4-1, 17 KOs) is the final hurdle for Saunders in obtaining a complete domestic whitewash of British and Irish Middleweights that already includes Lee, Chris Eubank Jr, Spike O’Sullivan, John Ryder and Nick Blackwell.

Murray admits his fifth shot at world glory is likely to be his last chance, while Saunders is chasing down a four-weight unification with Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez later this year.

The action-packed undercard features undefeated KO artists Anthony Yarde and Daniel Dubois, plus Ohara Davies makes his BoxNation debut and Darryll Williams defends his English Title.
