Live on DAZN worldwide, Chase DeMoor vs Minikon also added to January 20 event at First Direct Arena
Ed Matthews is all set to tangle with a shadowy figure in the high-voltage main event at MF & DAZN: X Series 012, happening January 20 in Leeds. It’s like a surprise party where the guest of honor might punch you in the face.
Joining the 2024 opener, live on DAZN worldwide, is the heavyweight smack-talk-a-thon between Chase DeMoor and Minikon. Finally, these two verbal gladiators will swap words for blows!
In a twist, HSTikkyTokky has decided to sit this one out.
Riding the wave of a smashing 2023, the X Series is back to set off fireworks in the New Year, with Matthews taking the spotlight in a scorching nine-fight lineup. He’s stepping into the ring blindfolded, figuratively speaking, against a Mystery Opponent, after his jaw-dropping stoppage of Swarmz at the Prime Card last October.
In the co-feature scrap, Misfits Boxing Women’s Middleweight queenpin AJ Bunker will stake her crown against Elle Brooke. These two have been lobbing verbal grenades at each other for ages, and they’re about to explode into action, rematching their 2022 tiff.
With the scorecard reading 1-0 in Brooke’s favor, can Bunker cling onto her title and even the odds?
Also on the X Series 012 ticket, Ashley Rak-Su throws down with OJ Rosé in a clash that’s got ‘Fight of the Year’ buzz. Rak-Su is coming off a win against Halam Ham in Newcastle, while Rosé is hungry for redemption after a debatable loss to Gabriel Silva.
In other bouts, ‘Mr. Adventure’ Tristan Hamm is set to duel with Not Logan Paul. Meanwhile, heavyweight sensation DTG returns after his show-stealer at the Prime Card, this time facing Myles Rak-Su.
Small but mighty, Jay summersaults back into the Misfits Boxing ring, taking on Fox The G. Ben Williams and Fes Batista are on a collision course, and Joey Knight squares up against Most Wanted.
And as if that’s not enough to get your heart racing, DeMoor and Minikon are ready to trade leather in an unmissable clash on the undercard. It’s shaping up to be a night where the punches are plenty and the excitement’s through the roof!
