Promoter Izzy Asif, looks to secure his 3rd sold-out show of 2024 as he continues his meteoric rise through boxing, building on his phenomenal breakthrough year, which saw him secure a multi-fight broadcast agreement with the world’s largest sport radio station talkSPORT to live stream its events on their official YouTube Boxing Channel. Izzy has built on this, gaining huge momentum with a number of marquee signings to their stable.

Izzy Asif, CEO of GBM Sports, said: “This is the best show we’ve delivered to date. It’s ‘Coming Of Age’ both for a lot of our fighters, but also for us as a promotion. We’ve got two huge title fights, heavyweight action with the return of Hughie Fury, and some of our star- signings in Tiernan Bradley and Kieran Molloy making their GBM debuts. Our first show outside of South Yorkshire was a huge success – but it’s great to be coming home and delivering another huge night of boxing.”

Heavyweight contender, and cousin of the WBC Heavyweight World Champion, Hughie Fury (26-3-0) makes his highly anticipated return to the ring on the card. The tough heavyweight from one of most renowned fighting lineages won the respect and admiration of fans when he challenged the likes of Heavyweight World Champion Joseph Parker, and seasoned operators in Kubrat Pulev and Alexander Povetkin. Illness has kept Hughie out of the ring for almost 3-
years, but now he is back and ready to return to big time boxing. Still only 29 years of age, Fury will reembark on his quest to become World Champion with a statement performance on May 11th.

Star signing, Shakiel Thompson (11-0-0) after committing his long-term future to GBM Sports, takes on a tough test in Vladimir Georgiev (12-3-0) for the vacant IBF European & WBO Global Middleweight Titles in a huge step up on his quest to become World Champion. The talented Middleweight star had previously been signed by BOXXER and Sky Sports, before committing to GBM in a bid to take his career to the next level.

Nicola Hopewell (4-1-0) takes on seasoned opponent Gemma Ruegg (7-10-1) who has faced the likes of former WBA World Champion Shannon Courtenay, Shannon Ryan, and Maisy Rose Courtney for the vacant Flyweight Commonwealth Title in what promises to be a thrilling contest.

New GBM signing, fan favourite and close friend of Conor McGregor, Tiernan Bradley (8-0-0) will look to extend his winning record on the card.
