CHAMBERLAIN’S CHANCE TO OPEN DOORS AT THE PALACE

Isaac Chamberlain, 30 years-old from Brixton, South- London, takes on a hard challenge when he defends his Commonwealth Boxing Council cruiserweight title against Jack Massey at the Selhurst Park Football Ground, Crystal Palace on next Saturday 15th June. The vacant European Boxing Union crown is also in the mix. Both men had suffered two professional defeats – Massey having gone out to Joseph Parker, the former world heavyweight championship title-holder who is again shaking up the division. Chamberlain will have a chance to impress his credentials on a strong domestic, as well as international, division – and, there will be every incentive to do well, because ….

Chris Billam-Smith,  one of the two men to defeat Isaac, is set to defend his WBO cruiserweight title against Richard Riakporhe at the top of the same bill. The unbeaten Riakporhe, incidentally, is the only opponent to have beaten Billam-Smith (in a non-title match four years ago). Domestic interest, alone, will demand that the winners of these two bouts be demanded – though, because of their higher international ranking, the Billam-Smith/Riakporhe may have their sights set initially on overseas opposition. Former amateur star, the extrovert light-heavyweight Ben Whittaker seeks to maintain his unbeaten record against Eworitse Ezra Arenyeka, and, in the same weight-class, Dan Azeez faces Hrvoje Sep.
