Matchroom Boxing and Queensberry Promotions will go head to head in a 5v5 tournament

Boxing will be treated to a unique, event when promoters Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing and Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions, pit five of their best fighters head to head.

Saudi Arabian promoter Turki Alalshikh has put on the unprecedented show, as the two British promoters bid to earn bragging rights in the British boxing scene.

Both promoters have chosen five fighters to represent their promotional stables, with two fights at heavyweight, as well as bouts at light-heavyweight, middleweight and featherweight on the fight card.

The card was supposed to offer the support for an undisputed light-heavyweight world title fight between Russian fighters Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol, but Beterbiev has since pulled out with injury.

Bivol will still defend his WBA world title in the headline fight, but here is everything you need to know about the Matchroom vs Queensberry 5 v 5 show.
