Promoter Frank Warren has assembled an all-star line up and returns to the Liverpool Echo Arena with a blockbuster multi-title show on Saturday 25th October featuring some of the best talent in British boxing, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).
Paul Butler will relinquish his IBF World Bantamweight title and return to the super-flyweight division as he aims to become Britain’s first boxer to win a second world title at a lighter weight in over a century.
The Ellesmere Port ace won the title by split-points decision – in just his 16th professional fight and only his second at bantamweight – by using his quick footwork and hand speed to beat the bigger and stronger Hall.
Butler, 25, thanked his loyal fans who cheered him to victory to become Ellesmere Port’s first ever world champion.
“That was the best night of my life, unbelievable, something I’ll always remember,” Said Butler.
“Boxing is the winner tonight,” said promoter Dennis Hobson after Stuart Hall and Paul Butler put on a sensational fight at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena (June 7).
Hall, making the second defence of his IBF bantamweight crown, faced Ellesmere Port’s Butler in front of a feverish crowd, and the contest lived up to all the pre-fight hype, albeit with an ultimately controversial verdict.
Darlington’s Hall, the bigger of the two, looked to impose his strength and appeared to land the bigger shots during the battle, often knocking Paul’s head back with jabs.
Unbeaten Butler, 25, faces the biggest test of his career when he challenges Stuart Hall for his IBF World Bantamweight title at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).
Butler’s all-action, hard-hitting, style, which focuses on rib-crunching body shot, has halted eight out of 15 opponents early, and is similar to the style that Hatton thrilled his legion of fans with in his heyday.
Hatton, a former four-time and two-weight world champion, says that watching Butler in action is like seeing himself in the ring a decade ago.
Fight fans should finally discover the full extent of Paul Butler’s precocious talent this Saturday when he challenges Darlington’s iron tough IBF bantam boss Stuey Hall at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.
A former world class amateur, the 25 year old from Ellesmere Port cruised to British and Commonwealth honours plus a string of InterContinental belts down at super-fly whilst posting perfect 15-0 stats as a pro. And the media have been left drooling over his silky skills and rib bending body attacks.
Stuart Hall is promising Paul Butler he will be in the shape of his life when the pair clash at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on June 7.
Hall puts his IBF world bantamweight title on the line when he makes the second defence of his belt against Ellesmere Port’s Butler, and the 34-year-old says training couldn’t be going better.
Paul Butler says that he’s got Stuart Hall’s number and will knockout the IBF World Bantamweight Champion on Saturday 7th June at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.
