Discover his inspiration for the children’s story about a cheeky little fellow with big dreams of being in the spotlight.
Frank Warren has announced that he will be bringing a night of world-class boxing to the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 27 September 2019.
The night will feature Daniel Dubois, bidding to add the Commonwealth heavyweight title to his collection, alongside WBO female flyweight champion Nicola Adams who will be competing in world title action.
After defeating rival Nathan Gorman at The O2 in July, British champion Dubois (12-0, 11KOs) will be looking to win a seventh title in only his 13th professional fight, when he faces off against Ebenezer Tetteh for the vacant Commonwealth crown.
Joe Joyce, the previous Commonwealth champion has relinquished the title, and the match between Dubois and Tetteh has been mandated by the Commonwealth Boxing Council, subject to Tetteh coming through a scheduled fight on 10 August 2019.
Warren also has a tentative agreement for Nicola Adams to be involved in a unification clash against the winner of the 16 August 2019 clash between IBF champion Leonele Paola Yucia and Isabel Millan, providing the winner comes through unscathed.
If the winner is unavailable through injury for the Royal Albert Hall date, Adams will defend her WBO crown at the Royal Albert Hall, and her next bout will be a unification match.
Adams, who came to prominence when she became the first female boxer to ever win an Olympic Gold, will make history once again, as this will be the first-ever professional female boxing match to take place at the Royal Albert Hall.
The night of boxing will also feature the WBO European super featherweight champion Archie Sharp, middleweight banger Denzel Bentley, heavyweight Jonathan Palata and Dennis McCann, with more exciting Profesional debuts to be announced soon.
