John Ryder in action on July 18th

Hellraiser Promotions are staging a weekend of back-to-back bonanza of shows at the Camden Centre later this month.

Mickey Helliet stages ‘Summer Showdown’ at his favourite London venue on Friday, July 18 and 24 hours later, he’s back there with another value-for-money 12-fight show that features the return of John Ryder.

The Islington southpaw hasn’t boxed since his bid for Billy-Joe Saunders’ British and Commonwealth belts ended in a narrow points loss last September and has never boxed so close to home since turning professional.

Also in action on the Saturday Hellraiser event are Elliott Matthews, the unbeaten Southern Area middleweight champion from Watford, flyweight prospect Sammy Cantwell and Ian ‘Lay ‘Em Out’ Lewison, who wants the chance to lay out Commonwealth heavyweight champion Lucas Browne.
But first on the Friday night, German KO specialist Arthur Hermann aims to extend his unbeaten record along with Islington-based middleweight Aarron ‘The Marksman’ Morgan and Lloyd Ellett.

Morgan has launched his pro career with three straight stoppages and Ellett has made his breakthrough this season by picking up the International Masters and British Masters light-middleweight belts.

Billy Saunders, cousin of Billy-Joe, and Richard Horton return from lengthy breaks on Friday night’s show.

Horton makes his comeback after a five year hiatus – and Saunders is back after seven years away.

Saunders won his only pro fight and the 27 year-old from Sidcup says his targets are the British and Commonwealth middleweight titles currently held by his cousin Billy-Joe Saunders.
