The next fight for YOKKAO 48 is now official and one that many had seen coming for a while. It’s the battle for the top spot as current UK number one, Joe Craven takes on the rising star, Niall Brown in a middleweight matchup. The two fighters also take the top two spots in the middleweight class on our promotion, setting the tone for what will truly be an explosive showdown.
Taking home 3 victories out of his 4 appearances on our promotion, Niall Brown fights out of Master Sken Academy (MAS) in Stockport under the renowned trainer. Brown is rapidly cementing his position as one of the most exciting fighters in the UK with his hard-hitting style. He won two of his three wins on our shows via stoppages and will now look to prove his place against the current number one, Joe Craven.
Training out of the world-famous Bad Company gym alongside UK legend, Liam Harrison, Craven has clocked a pristine record in all his four outings on our promotion. He returns to our stage in Bolton following his winning appearance in March last year and is back to show why he is the current top middleweight fighter.
Joe Craven vs Niall Brown will join other announced bouts on the card including Dean James vs Daren Rolland, the highly-anticipated rematch between Niamh Kinehan vs Nora Cornolle and the return to Bolton of UK legend, Liam Harrison as he takes on Jeremy Payet from France.
