The British Boxing Board of Control have announced the rematch between Battersea’s Denzel Bentley and Mark Heffron has been sanctioned for the now vacant British Middleweight title.
It had been announced as a final eliminator, but was upgraded once Liam Williams chose to vacate his title.
Heffron (25-1-1, 19KO’s) and Bentley (13-0-1, 11KO’s) last met on the 12th September, with the fight ending in a controversial unanimous draw.
Both fighters believed they’d done enough to win the fight, and will now get a chance to settle the debate with the richest prize in domestic boxing on the line.
Bentley said: “Being British and fighting for the British title is an honour. I want to conquer home first, then I’ll go on to conquer the world.”
