Jordan Purkiss vs Ramez Mahmood Preview:
After suffering back-to-back shocking losses to Mexico’s Rosendo Hugo Guarneros, Frank claimed the British championship with a convincing points decision over Matt Windle in late 2021. The only defence Frank had was against Craig Derbyshire earlier this year when they fought to a contentious stalemate in Rotherham, with most people expecting Derbyshire to win.
In addition to holding the European championship earlier, Harris has competed at a much higher level, vying for Julio Cesar Martinez’s world title in 2020. But after suffering back-to-back stoppage defeats to Ricardo Sandoval and Hector Flores, Harris’ career trajectory took a sharp turn, and he now finds himself in a domestic “must-win” fight.
Olympic champion Galal Yafai could potentially be paired with the victor of Frank vs. Harris, according to prior confirmation from Eddie Hearn. It is uncommon to see an all-British fight at lighter weights between two recognizable fighters, so Yafai and Hearn are unlikely to pass up the chance to compete for the Lonsdale Belt in a lucrative match.
