Hellraiser presents a night of championship boxing at the Camden Centre on Friday

Hellraiser presents a night of championship boxing at the Camden Centre on Friday, February 21.

The event sponsored by will be screened on Eurosport to 109 countries worldwide – and topping the bill is ‘The Knock-out King.’

Elliott Matthews has six wins inside three rounds on his record – and the Watford middleweight can also dig deep when his bombs don’t finish the fight early.

‘Boxing News’ rated his Southern Area-title winning effort against Gary Boulden as one of the best fights they saw in 2013.

Elliott came through an exciting, blood-splattered scrap with the belt and now defends the title against Peckham’s aggressive Diego Burton at the Camden Centre.

The undercard features exciting, crowd-pleasing prospects from the Hellraiser stable including some new signings – and a world champion.

The Eurosport deal has prompted an international signing spree by Mickey Helliet. Polish heavyweight sensation Marcin Siwi capped a fantastic amateur career with a Bronze medal in the 2008 Mexico Junior World Championships and now features in his first bout on a Hellraiser show. After winning all seven of his pro contests to date (four inside the distance) he’s targeting heavyweight titles in 2014.

Joe Duffy is a fast-rising middleweight who has featured regularly on Hellraiser shows and could be a new hero of Irish boxing. He will be joined by German puncher Arthur Hermann who boasts no fewer than 8 knockout wins in his first 9 contests.

There will be more international flavour as Irish cruiserweight Michael Sweeney (12 wins 3 losses) takes on Slovakian Vaclav Karafiat 12-1 over 6 rounds.

Marley Churcher won multiple national and international titles as an amateur and has achieved a faultless start in the pros. He will be looking to crash the light-heavyweight scene.

Aarron Morgan is without doubt another one to watch.

Morgan took just 72 seconds to win his professional debut, annihilating his opponent in chilling style.

Also looking to extend their unbeaten records at the Camden Centre are Craig Whyatt, Tony Milch, Ben Day and another new signing Darryll Williams.

Ryan Barrett is the world champion in action on the bill.

Last December, he avenged a previous loss to Geoffrey Munika with a three-round stoppage in Germany to claim the vacant WBU welterweight championship. Ryan takes on Hungary’s decent Gergo Vari 11-4.

In the flyweight division Guernsey’s Brad Watson will be looking to hone in on titles after winning his first 7 fights while Sam Cantwell looks like a chip off the old block.

Father Mickey was a British flyweight champion and world-title challenger – and Sam has made a punch-perfect start to his own professional career, posting back-to-back wins.
