CAROLINE DUBOIS WORLD TITLE CHALLENGE, RILEY vs QUARLESS FOR ENGLISH TITLE AND CALLUM SIMPSON CONFIRMED FOR HISTORIC YORK HALL ON SEPTEMBER 30TH
- Dubois faces Mexican veteran Magali Rodriguez for IBO World Lightweight Championship in headline bout of BOXXER: Breakthrough card
- First world title bout of 22-year-old prodigy’s career takes place in London’s historic York Hall and airs live and exclusively on Sky Sports
- Viddal Riley faces Nathan Quarless for English Cruiserweight Championship
The stunning ascent of Caroline Dubois (6-0, 5 KO’s) scales new heights on Saturday, September 30th when the 22-year-old prodigy steps up to challenge for the IBO World Lightweight Championship at London’s historic York Hall live and exclusively on Sky Sports.
Her world title challenge is one of three bouts announced today for a BOXXER: Breakthrough event showcasing the top tier of British boxing’s young talent, with undefeated crusierweights Viddal Riley and Nathan Quarless contesting the English English Cruiserweight Title and super-middleweight standout Callum Simpson heading into a firefight with the always-aggressive Germaine ‘G-Man’ Brown.
Competing in just her eighth professional bout, the prodigious Dubois will face power-punching Mexican veteran Magali Rodriguez (22-6-4, 9 KO’s), a former WBA world title challenger and current WBC title holder who has a 40% finish rate in her professional victories.
Two of the country’s top young cruiserweights will put their undefeated records on the line in a North vs South battle for the vacant English Cruiserweight Championship when London’s Viddal Riley (9-0, 6 KO’s) – himself a Youth Olympian like Dubois – faces Liverpool lad Nathan Quarless (12-0).
A serious threat awaits Callum Simpson in London next weekend as dangerous Mexican Jose De Jesus Macias steps in to replace an injured Germaine Brown.
Macias (28-12, 14 KO’s) has made a career of derailing contenders and spoiling the night for home fighters – such as his jaw-breaking 2021 TKO of recent WBO world title challenger Steve Butler in Canada – and he’s aiming to do the same to Simpson (12-0, 9 KO’s) next Saturday during his first-ever visit to the UK.
Hotly-tipped prospect Francesca Hennessy will make her debut BOXXER and professional debut. Entering the professional ranks following an accomplished amateur career which saw her win two national championships, the Women’s Winter Box Cup and Sweden’s Golden Girls Box Cup.
