WBO Bantamweight World Champion Zolani Tete & Johnriel Casimero Set For Nov 30, Birmingham Arena
Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions are heading to the Midlands to stage a bumper night of boxing at Arena Birmingham Saturday November 30, live on BT Sport.
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 18th October at 12pm via Ticketmaster and Ticketfactory.
The bill is stacked with 50-50 clashes featuring six title fights. The show will feature:
Zolani Tete v John Reil Casimero (WBO World Bantamweight Championship)
Sam Maxwell v Connor Parker (WBO European Super Lightweight Championship)
Hamzah Sheeraz will contest the vacant WBO European Super Welterweight Championship against an opponent to be named this week.
Zolani Tete (28-3, 21KOs) makes the fourth defence of his WBO World Bantamweight title against John Riel Casimero after his promoter Frank Warren won the purse bids.
It will be Tete’s first fight since October 2018 when he defeated Russia’s Mikhail Aloyan in the World Boxing Super Series. Unfortunately injury then ruled him out of the tournament.
“I have fully recovered from the shoulder injury and I will be testing it on Casimero’s chin. I am back,” warned the South African.
Filipino Casimero (28-4,19KOs) stopped Charlie Edwards in a IBF Flyweight title defence here in 2016 and is brimming after capturing the Interim WBO crown.
