How to watch Hamed Ghaz vs Liam Shinkwin

'Hurricane Hamed' is back in action!

BBN have provided viewers with all the details needed to tune in and watch Bradford's 'Hurricane' Hamed Ghaz (16-0, 3KOs) and Hertfordshire's Liam Shinkwin (9-1-1) clash on the 177th day of the year.

All the details you could possibly need to watch the Friday fight night event listed below:

 

Date

The bout takes place on Friday, June 25, which is the same day in history that the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson died, aged 50, in 2009.

 

Venue

Sheffield Arena Car Park, Sheffield.

 

Rounds scheduled

12x three-minute rounds at lightweight (135lbs).

 

Titles

The main event between Ghaz and Shinkwin will serve as a final eliminator for the English lightweight title, currently held by long-reigning titleholder Myron 'Skillz' Mills (15-1-, 6KOs), 25 from Derby, who has been the champion for over three years now.

 

Ringwalks

The ringwalks for the main event are expected from 10pm UK time, but that will depend on the undercard results.

Undercard Highlights

There isn't really a particular standout fight on the undercard, but fight fans will be treated to seeing four unbeaten prospects and three exciting debutants on the same night.

Cruiserweight Sonny Taylor (5-0, 3KOs) will likely be the best fighter to watch on the night for entertainment. Trained by Seb Glazer at the Vulcan Boxing Club in Hull, the 26-year-old has a crowd-pleasing style and has a good chance of scoring a knockout over six rounds.

 

Background

Hamed Ghaz gets the opportunity he’s been craving for when he gets top billing live on Fightzone in an eliminator for the English lightweight title.

Originally from Afghanistan but with Bradford now his home, the 25-year-old will take on Bushey Heath’s Liam Shinkwin at Sheffield’s Fightzone Arena for the chance to face champion Myron Mills later in the year.

A very useful amateur who represented Yorkshire in the unpaid code, undefeated Hamed has built up momentum since turning pro in 2014, however, his opponents have all been journeymen so hasn't been tested yet.

Shinkwin, although less experienced in number of fights and with a single early career loss from 11 contests, may not be the underdog in this bout away from home. The sole defeat was in Prizefighter, over three rounds, which many boxing pundits and insiders rarely really consider as a legitimate loss, due to the change in format. So this is a genuine 50-50 affair, especially as Liam is a former Southern Area champion who never lost the belt in the ring. Unlike Ghaz, Shinkwin has been the 10-round distance previously, which will serve as a huge advantage to him.

 

Quotes

Hamed: "It should be a good fight but I just think I'm levels above him. If I have to fight, I'll fight; if I have to box, I'll box. It'll be an interesting fight, a fight not to be missed."

Shinkwin: "As you know, I quit boxing eight years ago and had six years out so just enjoying being back in the game. There's still more in the tank so decided to have another crack. I feel fresh, I feel like I'm 25. I think he likes to have a tear-up, I think he'll come at me. It's a 10-rounder so anything can happen, I think it'll be a great fight."

 

Predictions

Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “I think it could be a contest that swings back and forth, with many rounds being hard to pick a winner. Shinkwin. Both boxers haven't fought since 2019, so there could be a feeling out process for the first few rounds, I'm certainly not expecting an explosive fight. I I had to choose then I'll back to Ghaz to win narrowly on points.”
