McAllister vs Murphy added to Haye bill


Lee Mcallister

Lee McAllister (33-2, 7ko) is set to defend his Commonwealth lightweight title at Manchester’s MEN Arena on April 3rd against Brighton's Ben Murphy (7-2-1, 3ko)

Murphy, promoted by Frank Maloney said that “What Ben lacks in skills he makes up for in determination and he doesn’t know how to take a backward step but all credit to McAllister for agreeing to defend against Ben, who is a fully paid up member of the ‘who needs him?’ club.”

Murphy, a fighter much better than his record suggests has struggled for fights since he turned pro 3 years ago.

George Groves has also been reported to be fighting the tough, fighting policeman from Accra, Charles Adamhu on the undercard for his commonwealth strap.

The night is shaping up to a decent undercard for those making the journey to Manchester.
