Frank Warren and the magnificent seven

Frank Warren has announced a bonanza card for September 18th which features one interim world championship bout, three European championship bouts, two British champions a vacant British belt and an Olympic gold medallist.

What more could a boxing fan ask for?

This is some real cream of the crop stuff for British fight fans and more than makes up for Warren’s disappointing “Night of Champions” card in February and comes hot on the heels of Warren’s, excellent Kevin Mitchell v Michael Katsidis show.

The stand-out fights straight away are Darren Barker v Matthew Macklin for the European middleweight title and exciting Welsh prospect Nathan Cleverly v the unbeaten German Karo Murat, for the interim WBO light-heavyweight title.

Domestic clashes include the rescheduled Kel Brook and Michael Jennings bout which should be a decent affair, as well as Derek Chisora finally getting a crack at Sam Sexton when the British big guys rumble for the British heavyweight title.

On his website the promoter said: “I’m delighted to putting on a card like this,”

“I always try and please the fans, and I think they will like this one.

“It is fantastic to be back promoting huge shows on a Saturday night, and there is no way better way to start than by putting on something like this.”

The fans are indeed going to happy with this card, which also features Enzo Maccarinelli, James DeGale and Don Broadhurst who are all awaiting confirmation of their opponents, while Frankie Gavin faces a tricky contest against former footballer Curtis Woodhouse.

Warren added: “It will showcase some of the best talent around at the moment in British boxing, and I think everyone featured on the card has the potential to kick on and fight for a world title.

“Some of the boxers like Enzo Maccarinelli, Michael Jennings Ryan Rhodes have already done that and are aiming to get back to the top, while the likes of James DeGale, Nathan Cleverly and Kel Brook could be the future of the sport in this country.”

The night is being prompted as “The Magnificent Seven” but there are more than seven fights worth watching. It’s a chock-a-block card and you have to say well done to Warren for delivering such an exciting a well matched set of fights.

Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and chums couldn’t have put on a better show themselves.

Nathan Cleverly v Karo Murat
Enzo Maccarinelli v TBA
Ryan Rhodes v Lukas Konecy
Derek Chisora v Sam Sexton
