Eddie Hearn has done very well in recent months at putting on high-quality cards for the British boxing public. 

It has just been announced that Lewis Ritson will take on Paul Hyland Jr in what will be the third defense of his British Lightweight title. Ritson burst onto the scene in October of last year. Tearing the title away from Robbie Barrett. Since then he has gone on a path of destruction. Stopping Joe Murray and former champion, Scott Cardle in just three short and pulverizing rounds. In Hyland Jr he faces a fellow undefeated fighter and one that is more experienced than he, but only just. Hyland Jr having competed in eighteen fights, stopping seven inside the distance. 

Sunderland's Josh Kelly will be competing for his second professional title in just seven fights. Like Ritson, Kelly has made waves in the last twelve months. He has stopped four of his six opponents and outpointed a former world champion in Carlos Molina last time out. He will fight Australian welterweight, Kris George. George has never fought outside of his native Austrailia in fifteen fights. He has fourteen wins, eight knockouts and one defeat on his record. 

Howay lads, time to do the north-east proud! All of us at IntuBoxing wish you well
