Chad Sugden to lock horns with Shakan Pitters in virtual battle

British Light Heavyweight title contenders Chad Sugden and Shakan Pitters will battle it out over a simulated fight on EA Sports Fight Night Champion on Saturday 28 March

All the action will be streamed exclusively on the Hennessy Sports YouTube channel at 4pm GMT tomorrow.

The two  Midlands professionals were scheduled to face-off for the vacant title in the headline contest at the Coventry Skydome Arena before the whole show was postponed following directives from the British Boxing Board of Control and the UK government after the outbreak of the coronavirus.

But they will still get to trade leather, now in a digital boxing ring as they clash in a simulated COM vs. COM fight in the classic video game EA Sports Fight Night Champion.

The virtual fight has been created by promoter Hennessy Sports to ensure boxing fans get a fight fix during the ongoing COVID-19 situation and provide some light relief and entertainment during this challenging period.

Chad and Shakan will still clash for ‘real’ with the prestigious British title on the line on a rescheduled date to be confirmed when it has been advised that it is safe proceed.

In the meantime, tune in at 4pm tomorrow to support Regis‘s elder brother and #TeamSugden!
