TWO Warrington fighters will feature in a professional bare-knuckle boxing event in Manchester on Saturday, July 6.

Chris 'The Scalp snatcher' Wheeldon and Tadaz Rusza will be on the card of the show being staged by Warrington-based Ultimate Bare-Knuckle Boxing at the BEC Arena.

Wheeldon, the former English middleweight champion and former British cruiserweight champion will be the first challenger to Will Cairns' British middleweight title.

Rusza, who hails from Lithuania but now lives, works and trains in Warrington, will be taking on Welshman Dean Byfield.

Another fight on the night will see double titles up for grabs.

One man will walk away with both belts as welterweight champion John Spencer and light welterweight champion Joseph Clark, aka ‘Mad Joe’, square up in the same ring.

Ultimate Bare Knuckle Boxing, known as UBKB, is owned and ran in Warrington by Shaun and Amanda Smith, and Stu Armstrong.

Shaun is well known as the 'UK's Scariest Debt Collector' from the viral videos from 'The Vice' and from the trending Netflix series, 'Bare Knuckle Fight Club'.
