Macklin to face Jomardashvili on "Magnificent Seven" card on 9/18
Frank Warren's huge Magnificent Seven show in Birmingham on Saturday 18th September rolls on.
Following the recent withdrawals of Darren Barker and Ryan Rhodes from their fights against Matthew Macklin and Lukas Konecny, respectively, Warren has been working hard to keep one of the biggest shows of his career together.
The Hall of Fame promoter can now confirm that Macklin will face hard Georgian Shalva Jomardashvili for the Vacant European Middleweight title, while Manchester's Matthew Hall gets a golden opportunity against Konecny for the Vacant European Light-Middleweight title.
The blockbuster card also features Nathan Cleverly's WBO World Light-Heavyweight title eliminator against Karo Murat; Kell Brook's WBO Intercontinental Welterweight title defence against Michael Jennings; Enzo Maccarinelli's European Cruiserweight title defence against Alexander Frenkel; British heavyweight champion Derek Chisora against Commonwealth Champion Sam Sexton; James DeGale's Eliminator for the British Super-Middleweight title against Carl Dilks; Frankie Gavin versus Michael Kelly for the Vacant Irish Light-Welterweight Championship and Don Broadhurst against Najah Ali for the Vacant International Masters Bantamweight Championship.
The Magnificent Seven will be broadcast live and exclusive on Sky Box Office.
