Isaac Chamberlain has new opponent when he challenges for European cruiserweight title at Selhurst Park

Isaac Chamberlain has a new opponent for the BOXXER show at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park after Michal Cieslak was forced to withdraw from their planned bout due to injury.

The Vauxhall cruiserweight will now face Jack Massey for the vacant European and Commonwealth titles on the show, which will be live on Sky Sports in the UK.

Cieslak has chosen to vacate his European title giving Massey a golden opportunity to step in and fight Chamberlain for the vacant strap.

Chamberlain and Massey will now square off as part of a historic night of boxing at Selhurst Park to celebrate the stadium’s centenary year.

Chamberlain (16-2, eight KOs) was named mandatory challenger for the European crown following a dominant points victory over Mikael Lawal for the British and Commonwealth Titles at York Hall in October 2023.

A percentage of every ticket sold will be donated to the Palace For Life Foundation, the official charity of Crystal Palace FC, which has been working with the community for more than 25 years, helping young people grow through the power of sport, inspiring them to find a better path in life and to lead a healthier life.

Massey (21-2, 12 KOs), the former IBO world cruiserweight champion, gets his shot at European glory having stopped Steve Eloundou Ntere inside a round last time out at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool in January.

BOXXER CEO and founder Ben Shalom said: “We now have another cruiserweight battle of Britain confirmed for our historic event at Selhurst Park as Isaac Chamberlain and Jack Massey clash for the European and Commonwealth Titles. We’d like to wish Michal Cieslak a speedy recovery. He’s been a great champion and we’re sure he will be back and in more big fights soon. This is a massive fight for both men with huge rewards for the winner and a very big addition to June 15th.”
