Matchroom Fight Camp Boxing Event

Matchroom Fight Camp went out with a bang on Saturday 22nd August and we were delighted to be a part of it.

Over the last month, Eddie Hearn, Sports Promoter and Managing Director of Matchroom Sport Ltd provided a brilliant and unique solution to the ban of live spectator sports forced by the COVID 19 pandemic by hosting a series of events at their Matchroom HQ in Brentwood, Essex.

The “summer of boxing” launched on Saturday 1st August. On the night of the Big Final 22nd August, there were 5 bouts in title. Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs) and Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs) met at the third attempt following two pandemic-forced postponements of their heavyweight humdinger for the interim WBC championship.

Initially, the pair were put on collision course for May 2 in London, then it was rescheduled for July 4 in Manchester. Now, Fight Camp could finally ensure this highly-anticipated battle of top contenders goes ahead.

And the card has big chief support, too. Undisputed women’s lightweight champion Katie Taylor (15-0, 6 KOs) defended her hoard of championship belts against Delfine Persoon, whom Taylor defeated just over a year ago at Madison Square Garden on her path to total unification.
On the undercard, Luther Clay (13-1, 5 KOs) defended his WBO global featherweight championship against Chris Kongo (11-0, 6 KOs), Alen Babic (3-0, 3 KOs) faced Shawndell Winters (13-3, 12 KOs) in heavyweight action, and Jack Cullen (18-2, 9 KOs) fought Zak Chelli (7-1, 3 KOs) at super-middleweight.

It was the final fight that everyone anticipated. Dillian Whyte Vs Alexander Povetkin was set to be unmissable, with Whyte risking his interim Heavyweight World Title.

Although fight night 4 was available to view via Sky Sports Box office, Lightmedia Displays had the privilege of providing an 8sqm Modular LED screen to The Joint BBQ Restaurant and Bar in London so that friends’, family and supporters, who unfortunately couldn’t attend the event in person, could enjoy the fight from a distance.

While Whyte dominated the fight, flooring Povetkin twice in the fourth round, in a turn around that shocked everyone, he succumbed to a single knock-out punch from Povetkin, squashing his hopes of the World Title for the moment.

The fight, which took place on Saturday 22nd August, was the last of the Matchroom Fight Camp series, with Eddie Hearn calling the project a “huge success”. In an interview with Sky, he stated that the pandemic was not an excuse to let all their hard work go to waste, but instead, it was an opportunity for them to make a statement, and we think they did just that!

Lightmedia Displays were delighted to bring the event to The Joint, where friends and family were ecstatic to be able to see the fight. We certainly look forward to Whyte and Povetkin’s rematch.

LMD were a great company to work with. Both prior to the event and during our event weekend, the team were extremely helpful and easy to work with. Ian and Andrew who attended the event weekend were very helpful and a pleasure, fitted in well with the rest of the event team. They went above and beyond what was asked of them and provided fantastic results throughout our live stream. We will most definitely work with them again and use LMD services.

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU. Not only did you save us from having to cancel an event that was planned months in advance but also you restored our faith in the community spirit. We were let down by a similar company, a day prior to the planned event with no warning or communication.

What a result, the event was such a success thanks to your kindness and we received amazing reviews.
