Dangerous Jose De Jesus Macias Steps
In To Face Callum Simpson, York Hall, September 30th!
(September 25th) A serious threat awaits Callum Simpson in London next weekend as dangerous Mexican Jose De Jesus Macias steps in to replace an injured Germaine Brown on the BOXXER: Breakthrough card at London’s York Hall on Saturday, September 30th, live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
In June this year, Macias faced Erik Bazinyan – ranked #3 in the world at super-middleweight by the WBC and #2 by the WBA – and gave him a scare, nearly spoiling Bazinyan’s undefeated record and the big-money Canelo Alvarez showdown that Bazinyan has been linked with.
Macias (28-12, 14 KO’s) has made a career of derailing contenders and spoiling the night for home fighters – such as his jaw-breaking 2021 TKO of recent WBO world title challenger Steve Butler in Canada – and he’s aiming to do the same to Simpson (12-0, 9 KO’s) next Saturday during his first-ever visit to the UK.
For Barnsley man Simpson – considered one of the best under-the-radar talents in the UK by boxing insiders before he signed with BOXXER earlier this year – it’s a chance to test his mettle against a fighter who has faced some of the division’s toughest talents and score a win which will put his name on the international radar.
“Callum Simpson already had a tough opponent for September 30th and now he has an even tougher one. Jose de Jesus Macias is an excellent boxer who has caused a string of upsets over the years and gave the world-ranked #3 super-middleweight Erik Bazinyan all sorts of problems in June,” said Ben Shalom, BOXXER CEO.
“This is a serious test for Simpson. There aren’t many fighters who would step up to this level of opposition so early in their careers, especially on short notice, and I think he deserves a lot of credit for accepting this fight with Macias.”
BOXXER presents Simpson vs Macias in association with bet365 as the event’s bet365 Wildcard contest.
BOXXER: Breakthrough at York Hall, London takes place Saturday, September 30 and airs live and exclusively in the UK and Ireland on Sky Sports.
This event is presented in association with official partners bet365, Everlast, WOW HYDRATE, Village Hotels and Fastline Steel Services.
Caroline Dubois World Title Challenge,
Viddal Riley vs Nathan Quarless For English Cruiserweight Title and Callum Simpson vs Germaine ‘G-Man’ Brown Confirmed For Historic York Hall On September 30th!
(August 22nd) The stunning ascent of Caroline Dubois (6-0, 5 KO’s) scales new heights on Saturday, September 30th when the 22-year-old prodigy steps up to challenge for the IBO World Lightweight Championship at London’s historic York Hall live and exclusively on Sky Sports.
Her world title challenge is one of three bouts announced today for a BOXXER: Breakthrough event showcasing the top tier of British boxing’s young talent, with undefeated crusierweights Viddal Riley and Nathan Quarless contesting the English English Cruiserweight Title and super-middleweight standout Callum Simpson heading into a firefight with the always-aggressive Germaine ‘G-Man’ Brown.
Competing in just her eighth professional bout, the prodigious Dubois will face power-punching Mexican veteran Magali Rodriguez (22-6-4, 9 KO’s), a former WBA world title challenger and current WBC title holder who has a 40% finish rate in her professional victories.
Two of the country’s top young cruiserweights will put their undefeated records on the line in a North vs South battle for the vacant English Cruiserweight Championship when London’s Viddal Riley (9-0, 6 KO’s) – himself a Youth Olympian like Dubois – faces Liverpool lad Nathan Quarless (12-0).
Also confirmed for the September 30th card today are the surging Callum Simpson (12-0, 9 KO’s) and the gritty Germaine ‘G-Man’ Brown (13-2, 4 KO’s), set to meet in what is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleasing super-middleweight showdown between two gunslingers who both like to occupy the centre of the ring and rarely take a backwards step.
