Lee Purdy Returns Dec 14th


Lee Purdy will challenge Leonard Bundu for the European Welterweight title on December 14, part of a huge night of action in London live on Sky Sports.

Purdy boxes for the first time since his World title challenge against Devon Alexander in May and faces the unbeaten Italian in London, with the venue to be confirmed soon.

Bundu claimed the title in November 2011 and has defended it four times since. The 38 year old is ranked at number four in both the WBC and IBF and Purdy’s promoter Eddie Hearn was delighted to secure the fight for his Christmas blockbuster, and believes a win for Purdy will open more big doors in 2014.

“This is the perfect fight for LP and one that many welterweights around Europe have been looking to make,” said Hearn. “Bundu is the European champion and also well placed in the governing bodies. Further details on the December show will be released soon – we’re planning a blockbuster night to end a great year on a high.”
