Ultimate Boxxer 7: The Super Middleweights

After Heavyweight destruction last time out, Ultimate Boxxer raises the level again as eight Super Middleweight contenders go head to head in a knockout tournament that only one can win.

On April 3rd in Manchester, at least four perfect records will be shattered on the night, as five of the eight contenders boast 0’s, but with a Eubank in the mix, Brazilian fighter Diego Costa and title holders from across the country, the only guarantee is knockouts!

The short form boxing spectacle once again promises to entertain as TV talent, celebrities and stars from the boxing world come together to witness the most unpredictable of tournaments, and with ticket sales seeing record highs during presale, you can expect this event to sell out early.

Tickets are on general sale now, and can be purchased from Ticketmaster – here.

As ever, the draw to see which fighters will face off at the quarter final stage will happen in the build up to the event.

The fighters:

All eyes will be on British fighter Seb Eubank, who will put it all on the line. With extensive combat sport pedigree and with a surname that is set to turn heads amongst the boxing community, he has everything to prove as he looks to continue his unbeaten professional record in the ring. Those that train closely with him will tell you that he has the famous Eubank knockout power.

At just 22 years old, Manchester’s Mark Jeffers (11-0-0) will enter the night full of confidence following his recent title win. With 11 wins from 11 fights, he goes into the tournament as one of the favourites with comparison’s already being made to Ricky Hatton – many tipping him to go to the very top in the sport.

Unbeaten Idris Virgo comes into the tournament entering the peak of his career. Best known for being a contestant in Love Island back in 2017, he will be determined to be taken seriously in the professional sport with his exciting style and personality.

Knockout artist Diego Costa who hails from Brazil via Manchester (7-0-0) joins the tournament with the best knockout ratio on the card. He is yet to taste defeat in his professional boxing career and his explosive nature is sure to excite fans as he looks to maintain his unbeaten record.

Next up is former Commonwealth Super Middleweight Champion Luke Blackledge who fights out of Lancashire. Blackledge brings the most experience to the card and will be seeing this as his last chance to hit the big time.

Representing Scotland is the current Celtic champion, Tommy Philbin who returns to his favoured super middle weight and will be looking to return to winning ways when he steps back inside the ring after experiencing defeat for the first time in his last fight.

Finally, two Manchester based fighters complete the line-up. The established Charlie Schofield who holds a very impressive fight record of (15-1-0) and stands at 6ft 3 inches tall. And 22-year-old Ben Ridings, the youngest fighter in the tournament who will be looking to maintain his unbeaten record in front of his own fans.
