Undefeated British and Commonwealth super middleweight champion Lerrone Richards defends his Lonsdale belt for the first time to challenger Umar Sadiq.
Both boxers enter the contest with momentum and good wins behind them. ‘Top Boxer’ Sadiq scored a fine points win over unbeaten Kody Davies (10-0) in a British title eliminator in February this year, and ‘Sniper the Boss’ triumphed over undefeated Lennox Clarke (19-0-1) in November last year.
The defending champion won the Commonwealth title against former British and Commonwealth middleweight champ Tommy Langford (21-3) in his penultimate fight, then added the British in his last fight against another Birmingham boxer, Lennox Clarke (19-0-1), which were his only two fights in 2019.
The challenger fought a whopping six times in 2019 to rebuild from his sole career loss to stablemate Zak Chelli (4-0) in 2018, where the unbeaten pair had a thrilling shootout resulting in Sadiq hitting the deck in the sixth round, ultimately costing him the decision in the eight-round contest.
Now, Sadiq takes on yet another unbeaten stablemate behind closed doors during Frank Warren’s summer season of shows.
