In a press release by Frank Warren on Wednesday, the undercard was announced for Billy Joe Saunders WBO Interim world super middleweight title against Shefat Isufi on Saturday, May 18. With a number of other matches to be confirmed shortly. This event is taking place at the Lamex Stadium – home of Stevenage FC.
On the card as well is featherweight Ryan ‘The Piranha’ Garner returns to the ring for his ninth professional fight. The 21-year-old from Southampton has recorded six KOs from his eight professional fights and is looking to get himself in the title picture this year. Check out this match where he stopped Tamas Laska with some very quick lefts back in 2017.
Former world amateur champion Willy Hutchinson will have his eighth pro fight in what will be his fifth fight inside a year as the Scot gathers experience in the light heavyweight division, while cruiserweight James Branch jr from Hainault enters into his fifth pro fight seeking a first KO finish.
Unbeaten super lightweight Sanjeev Sahota returns to the ring at Stevenage looking to build on his 11 wins so far, with gym mate Harley Benn having his seventh fight at super welterweight. Also in action is Harvey Horn from Chigwell continues building towards domestic flyweight title action with his sixth pro fight.

In a further special attraction on the night, the multi-titled standout amateur star Lisa Whiteside is set to turn professional and will make her debut at the Lamex Stadium.
The decorated flyweight is a seven-time national champion and a 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist. Whiteside also won silver at the 2014 world championships, having won bronze at the 2012 edition. She is also a European championship silver medallist from 2011. Her turning pro will hopefully set the wheel in motion for a match against rival Nicola Adams.
Also featuring on the card is Streatham super bantamweight Chris Bourke (2-0), Hitchin super middleweight Graham Tirrell (9-0), London light heavyweight Ollie Pattinson (9-0), Aylesbury light heavyweight Adi Burden (8-0) and Milton Keynes middleweight Conor Wright (7-0).
