Tyler Denny ordered to defend European middleweight title to Felix Cash
The European Boxing Union this week ordered their middleweight champion Tyler Denny (18-2-3, 1KO) to defend his championship to mandatory contender Felix Cash (16-0, 10KO), making it an all-English affair.
The deadline for purse offers / agreements has been set for February 19 at 12noon (Rome time).
The titleholder, Tyler Denny, 32 from Rowley Regis, claimed the blue belt with an emphatic eighth-round stoppage victory over Italian Matteo Signani in November last year in front of his home crowd in Wolverhampton.
With a cut above his left eye, the defending champion from Italy was withdrawn from the contest at the beginning of round eight. Surprisingly, that biggest career victory for Denny was the southpaw’s first ever stoppage win.
Former British and Commonwealth middleweight champion Felix Cash will represent Denny with his toughest opponent yet.
The fearsome puncher unified British and Commonwealth belts when he stopped then-unbeaten Denzel Bentley in just three rounds, who went on to become a two-time British titleholder and world title contender.
Trained by Tony Sims, Cash has been sidelined all through 2023, but with such an extensive amateur pedigree and unbeaten pro record behind him, he will have no issues jumping into such a big fight after over a year away.
Whether the fight will be made or not, will materialise on February 19.
