Mark Jeffers vs Darren JohnstoneCARDIFF, WALES (May 3, 2024) – English Champion Mark Jeffers will defend his Commonwealth Silver Super Middleweight Title against Scottish Champion Darren Johnstone on Saturday, May 11th at the Utilita Arena Cardiff, live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland, BBC Wales in Wales and Peacock in the USA.

The undefeated super middleweights clash as part of a huge night of boxing in Cardiff topped by Lauren Price MBE challenging Jessica McCaskill for the WBA, IBO and Ring Magazine World Welterweight Titles.

Jeffers (17-0, 4 KOs), who is currently ranked #3 with the EBU, is proving to be a dangerman in the 168lbs division. The 26-year-old from Chorley stepped in at short notice to defeat current British and Commonwealth Champion Zak Chelli to claim the English and Commonwealth Silver Titles in July 2023.

Jeffers followed this up with a convincing points win over Germaine Browne at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool in January to retain his belts.

Johnstone captured the Scottish Super Middleweight Title with a first round stoppage win over Ben McGivern. Johnstone sent his opponent to the canvas inside the first stanza before the fight was stopped at the end of the round due to a cut above McGivern’s left eye.

The newly crowned Scottish champion will now step up to face his English counterpart in a battle of Britain in the Welsh capital.

History maker Price, the first Welsh boxer to win Olympic gold, has the chance to write her name in the record books again by becoming the country’s first female world champion when she attempts to dethrone current welterweight ruler McCaskill and claim the WBA, IBO and Ring Magazine World Titles.

Rhys Edwards faces former British Champion and WBA #1 contender Thomas Patrick Ward for the WBA Intercontinental Featherweight Title, Hughie Fury returns against Germany’s Patrick Korte, Kyran Jones takes on fellow unbeaten Welshman Lewis Howell, Kane Shepherd meets Ishmael Ellis and Swansea heavyweight hope Moses Jolly continues his quest to become Wales’ first heavyweight world champion.

This event is presented in association with official partners bet365, Integritas Property Group and HELL Energy.
