24th March 2021 – This Friday’s planned title fight between Akeem Ennis Brown and Sam Maxwell see’s Sam face a new opponent after Brown suffered an injury in training.
Sam was due to challenge for the British and Commonwealth super-lightweight titles in a clash of unbeaten fighters, against Akeem Ennis-Brown but the bout will now be unable to take place this week as he Ennis-Brown has been forced to pull out of the fight due to injury.
Sam Maxwell will now face former Midlands Area champion Ben Fields on Friday’s Queensberry Promotions event at the Copper Box Arena.
The event will be broadcast live on BT Sport, with Maxwell (14-0, 11 KOs) still getting the chance to compete after his planned fight with Akeem Ennis Brown was unable to take place.
It sees Maxwell make his return following his victory over Joe Hughes last August, where he successfully retained his WBO European super-lightweight title.
Former GB amateur star Maxwell has moved to new trainer Steve Maylett, a switch that he believes will pay dividends now and in the future.
From all at Britannia Cestrian we support Sam Maxwell and can’t wait to see him continue his undefeated streak.
