Sanigar Events presents ‘Bristol Blitz’ Championship Boxing at The Dolman Hall, Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. Unbeaten light heavyweight prospect Hasan Karkardi will rematch Newcastle’s Scott Westgarth for the International Light Heavyweight Challenge Belt. Their last contest was beginning to heat up when a gash above Karkardi’s eye forced the ringside doctor to halt the contest in the 5th round resulting in a technical decision for the Bristol based Iranian. Westgarth will be gunning for revenge and a chance to show the hostile crowd that he can be the first to blemish Karkardi’s perfect record.
Frome boxer Ryan Wheeler has been fighting since childhood and knows what to do when the going gets tough. Ryan was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of four and fought back from adversity to make a full recovery. Since then Ryan has dedicated himself to boxing and fought over 60 fights as an amateur before turning professional. Ryan teamed up with Bristol boxing manager Chris Sanigar in 2015 and is on a three fight winning streak after boxing to a draw in his debut.

Japanese star Ryosuke Iwasa heads to Bristol this week ahead of his June 13 battle with Lee Haskins for the IBF interim world bantamweight championship and is determined to return to the Land of the Rising Sun with the belt around his waist.
The 25-year-old southpaw has long been considered one of Japan’s standout boxing talents and his fight with Haskins marks the first time he will have fought for a version of the world title. It is, therefore, a significant step-up in class – and one he’s more than ready for.
By Lee Haskins: I don’t envy the task facing Ryosuke Iwasa next month. Not only does he have to fight me, he also has to fight me in Bristol of all places. For a man that has never fought outside his native Japan before, this could prove to be one hell of a hurdle to overcome.
