Arauz Injury Drama Forces August 1st

LET BATTLE COMMENCE II to be Rescheduled

To 15th August…with New Headline!

(July 31st) Let the Battle Commence II, in Association with PAPA JOHN’S PIZZA and NEON ENERGY DRINK, which was due to take place this Saturday 1st August and headlined by PBC & WBU International Champion Nathan Beattie (10-4-0) against Nicaraguan Milton Arauz (10-3-1) has had to be rescheduled due to Injury and further last minute dramas.

 

Nicaragua’s Milton Arauz has been forced to withdraw, due to a hand injury, however more bad news emerged when hastily arranged replacement Julio Bendana, who flew in yesterday, was  informed he must self isolate for fourteen days.

 

On hearing the news Promoter Lee Mcallister was left with no option but to request permission from the British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) to reschedule the event to the 15th August.

 

A few hours later another spanner was thrown into the works, when Nathan Beattie announced he wouldn’t be able to box on August 15th, as he had booked a holiday and flies out this Sunday, the day after the original fight night.

 

Further discussions with the British & Irish Boxing Authority ensued and late on Thursday night it was agreed that the Nathan Beattie versus either Milton Arauz or Julio Bendana would be rescheduled to later in the series and the original 15th August headline Lee Mcallister versus Edwin Palacios would replace Beattie-Arauz.

 

Further negotiations led to an increase of contests from five to seven, three of which were changed to four rounders, so that the majority of those due to fight on either the original 1st and 15th August events would still get to compete.

 

The updated card for LET BATTLE COMMENCE II, in Association with PAPA JOHN’S PIZZA and NEON ENERGY DRINK, which takes place on Saturday 15th August 2020 and will be broadcast exclusively live on FITE TV, is:

 

Middleweight

Six time, Five Division World Champion, and Promoter of the LET BATTLE COMMENCE series, Lee McAllister makes his first appearance on the series and faces Spain based Nicaraguan Edwin Palacios in the headline fight. Palacios has stated he’s up to the challenge and to expect fireworks.

Super Featherweight

Denny’s Kevin Traynor (2-0-0) will need to be at his best when he takes on the current International Masters Champion Pablo Narvaez from Nicaragua.

Nicola Hopewell vs Tasha Boyes

Features on Aberdeen Event This Saturday Live on FITE TV!

(July 28th) Exciting former Amateur Star Nicola Hopewell is set for her second pro boxing outing this coming Saturday, when she faces Yorks’ Tasha Boyes in a six round contest, as main support for Nathan Beattie (10-4-0) versus Milton Arauz (10-3-1) at the Northern Hotel in Aberdeen on the Lee McAllister promoted LET BATTLE COMMENCE II, in association with PAPA JOHN’s PIZZA and NEON ENERGY DRINK which will be broadcast live and exclusive on FITE TV on Saturday 1st August 2020.

 

As an Amateur Hopewell, a former England Pathway Squad member, shared the ring with a host of top class fighters including Commonwealth Gold Medalist and now undefeated pro boxer Lisa Whiteside and GB boxer Tori Ellis Willetts who is on the pathway for the Olympics. During her time at the Team GB facility in Sheffield Hopewell also sparred with the likes of double Olympic Gold Medalist Nicola Adams as well as WBC International Championship Challenger Nina Bradley and IBO and WBC World Champion Terri Harper.

 

On her pro debut back on March 7th this year, Hopewell beat Ghanaian former Elite Amateur Anita Addy, to secure her first pro victory via a second round stoppage.

 

Hopewell’s opponent on Saturday will be 28 year old Tasha Boyes from York, who only got into boxing a couple of years ago, after hearing about two sisters whose parents had died in the Manchester Bombing and she wanted to do something to help them in some way, so she decided to participate in a ‘White Collar’ boxing event to raise money for the orphaned sisters.

 

Boyes’ second ‘White Collar’ outing was also to help someone in desperate need, this time a local boxer’s disabled daughter. By now Boyes was hooked and continued to compete on the unlicensed circuit, ultimately winning the British Challenge Title, then earlier this year she successfully applied for her professional license, but then within days everything came to an abrupt halt as the Nation went into lockdown.

 

Boyes clearly has a great approach to life, the sport of boxing, as well as the challenge ahead of her on Saturday, as was made clear by just one comment she made in a recent article in Fight Post where she said  “Going pro and doing my pro debut, it’s more to see where I’m at. I’m not too worried about getting a couple of losses. Like I say, I’m more about challenging myself.”

 

Nicola Hopewell and Tasha Boyes careers may have been via very different routes, but come  Saturday night their journeys will lead to the very same ring.

 

Nicola Hopewell versus Tasha Boyes is the main support for the Nathan Beattie non-championship clash against Milton Arauz, that headlines the Lee McAllister promoted LET BATTLE COMMENCE II, in association with PAPA JOHN’s PIZZA and NEON ENERGY DRINK which will be broadcast live and exclusive on FITE TV on Saturday 1st August 2020.
