Matchroom vs Queensberry 5v5 Fight Card

A preview of the Matchroom vs Queensberry 5v5 fight card. Learn who is fighting ahead of the first bell.

This upcoming weekend of big time boxing heads back to Saudi Arabia. What a card in store.

Main Event: Wilder’s Redemption Quest vs. Zhang’s Big Bang Theory

Deontay Wilder, the former WBC heavyweight champion known for his thunderous power, faces a critical juncture in his career.

After a string of setbacks, “The Bronze Bomber” seeks to re-establish his dominance against Zhilei Zhang, the durable Chinese contender nicknamed “Big Bang.”

Zhang, fresh off a loss to Joseph Parker, aims to derail Wilder’s comeback plans and catapult himself into title contention.

Indeed, both fighters know about losing to Parker coming into this one.

Wilder still carries the power but how much does he have left?

41-year-old Zhang of China will bring this to the surface.

You get the sense a knockout is on the cards in this fight.

Heavyweight Chess Match: Hrgovic’s Technical Prowess vs. Dubois’ Explosive Young Potential

In a co-main event with massive implications for the heavyweight division, Filip Hrgovic, the Croatian technician, battles Daniel Dubois, the British powerhouse.

Hrgovic, undefeated and highly ranked, boasts a polished skillset and an impressive resume.

Dubois, however, possesses the raw power and aggression to upset anyone on any given night.

He’s also fought much better opposition than his Croatian counterpart this weekend.

He is also coming into the fight in great form having stopped Jarrell Miller last December. Dubois is only 26, too, people forget.

This fight could determine the next challenger for a world title.

Dubois has only ever lost to undisputed champion Usyk, and to Joe Joyce early on in his career.

Filip Hrgovic is undefeated from Croatia in 17 fights however and simply does not know how to lose — Dubois will look to show him.

Featherweight Firefight: Ford’s Title Defense vs. Ball’s Upset Bid

Raymond Ford, the WBA featherweight champion, puts his belt on the line against the dangerous Nick Ball.

Ford, a young and rising star called ‘The Savage’ is unbeaten in 16 pro fights, has showcased his talent and potential in recent outings.

Ball, a gritty and determined challenger, aims to capitalize on this opportunity and snatch the title from Ford’s grasp. Bal is unbeaten in 20 pro fights to date.

Expect a fast-paced, action-packed bout between two hungry fighters.

Light Heavyweight Scrap: Richards’ Experience vs. Hutchinson’s Youthful Exuberance

Craig Richards, a seasoned light heavyweight contender, faces a stiff test against Willy Hutchinson, a promising up-and-comer.

Richards, known for his resilience and ring savvy, looks to solidify his position in the division.

He lost to the excellent Dmitry Bivol in 2021 and to Joshua Buatsi in 2022, so has mixed in quality company.

Hutchinson, on the other hand, hopes to make a statement and prove he belongs among the elite.

This fight could steal the show with its competitive nature and high stakes.

A highly touted Scottish prospect with only the one blip by TKO loss a few years back to Lennox Clarke in 2021.

People like Hall of Famers such as Frank Warren and Shelly Finkel don’t scout quality fighters like this out early on in their careers for no reason, keep an eye on Hutchinson.

Middleweight Mayhem: Williams’ American Dream vs. Sheeraz’s British Invasion

Ammo Williams, an American middleweight southpaw with a penchant for knockouts, travels across the pond to challenge Hamzah Sheeraz, a rising British star.

Williams, an unbeaten heavy-handed slugger, aims to make a splash on the international stage.

The Texan has already won the IBF North American Middleweight Title and WBA International Middleweight Title.

Sheeraz, undefeated (19-0-15 KO) and highly touted, looks to defend his home turf and continue his ascent up the rankings. He has shown real promise, in fairness.

He took out Liam Williams inside the distance impressively only last February.

This fight promises to be a slugfest between two aggressive and ambitious fighters. Young unbeaten fighters throwing down.

Beyond the Fights Hearn vs Warren and Their Two Companies!

The Matchroom vs. Queensberry card transcends the individual bouts.

It’s a clash of promotional philosophies, a battle for bragging rights, and a showcase of boxing’s global appeal.

Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing against Hall of Famer Frank Warren’s Queensberry.

With a diverse lineup of fighters representing different styles and backgrounds, this event promises to deliver excitement and drama from start to finish.

However, the bragging rights are on the table for both companies — with the loser’s Andy Ayling having to make the tea at Matchroom offices in the UK if Queensberry lose.

Matchroom’s Frank Smith having to do likewise if Matchroom lose — at Queensberry offices in the UK.

Matchroom vs Queensberry 5v5 Fight Card promises quite the show.
