Thursday July 18,2013 : BETFRED TO SPONSOR BOXING
Deal signed with Frank Warren Promotions and BoxNation
Tier one Brit online and land bookie Betfred has inked a deal with boxing promoter Frank Warren Promotions and 24-hour boxing television channel BoxNation to become the title sponsor of two British boxing events this summer.
The sponsorship will be for the Behind Enemy Lines card at Wembley Arena on July 20, featuring a headline fight of Dereck Chisora against Malik Scott.
On August 17 Betfred is to sponsor the return of World Championship boxing to Wales at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on a night headlined by Nathan Cleverley taking on Sergey Kovalev.
Fred Done, co-founder of Betfred, said: “Both the Wembley and Cardiff events will show British boxing at its best. Chisora is a controversial character and will always make for an exciting fight and Cleverly is on the top of his game, so I'm looking forward to what I’m sure will be an action packed night of top British boxing.
