Martin Murray versus Domenico Spada and the rest of the Monte Carlo bill will be shown live on Channel Five in the UK

Hennessy Sports and Golden Gloves have agreed to showcase the bill, that also includes Stuart Hall's latest world title shot

IN a coup for UK boxing fans, October 25’s “Title Tornado” tournament in Monte Carlo, jointly headlined by the UK’s Martin Murray in a world title eliminator against Domenico Spada, and Stuart Hall in a world title fight, will be broadcast live on Channel Five in Britain.

Working in collaboration with promoter Mick Hennessy, and Hennessy Sports’ William Storey, Golden Gloves promoter Rodney Berman has ensured that Murray’s WBC Silver middleweight title defence and Hall’s IBF world title fight against undefeated Randy Caballero will potentially be seen by millions of households live on UK terrestrial television.

This is a significant milestone for the sport given that the last major world title fight broadcast live on UK terrestrial television was Carl Froch against Jean Pascal for the WBC title in December 2008, also promoted by Hennessy on ITV.
