Neilson Boxing Heads To York Hall For The Very First Time
Neilson Boxing and Warren Boxing Management are aiming to shake up London’s small hall boxing scene with a series of shows, starting with this Friday at York Hall.
After teaming up during lockdown, both organisations are keen to provide a short in the arm for small hall boxing by producing more competitive fight nights.
Jack McGann (5-0-1) faces John Brennan (13-6-2) later this week as the pair square off in an English title eliminator at super-welterweight.
Elsewhere on the card at the same weight, talented Kingsley Egbunike (6-1-1) takes on Jordan Dujon (5-1).
They’re joined by Louis Horn (1-0) who is taking on Mark Butler (2-0) as well as welterweight Louis Isaacs (6-1), Boy Jones Jr (19-4-1), heavyweight prospect Lucian Atana (5-0) and lightweight Numan Hussain, who is making his debut.
The show signifies the first of two events promoted by Neilson Boxing at London’s York Hall in April and promoter, Mark Neilson, says he’s looking forward to putting on a show in the capital and making an impression in conjunction with Warren Boxing Management.
“Warren Boxing Management have a huge stable of quality fighters and when we met it soon became clear that we have the same idea of what small hall boxing should be,” he said.
“We were both in agreement about what has been missing in recent years, with home fighters just fighting journeymen and all of the results being forgone conclusions.
“So, working together just made sense because they have all the boxers and we have the promotional expertise which can create a better platform.
“I’m really looking forward to promoting a show at York Hall, it’s an iconic venue and a sign of things to come from Neilson Boxing.”
Alfie Warren, echoed the thoughts of Neilson and said he is looking forward to putting his fighters into tough contests in order to progress their careers.
“At Warren Boxing Management we had a bit of a turbulent 2021 with a lot of shows falling through,” he added.
“As soon as we met with Mark, we hit it off straight away, we just want to make the small shows as good as we can and give the fans the best value for money.
“Us working together suits everyone and if we feel a fighter doesn’t want to progress themselves, we aren’t the type of guys to pad records out.
“I want to go back to the old school style of boxing and I think more competitive fights and proper progression is what it needs.”
