The third annual card held in Monaco has been announced by Eddie Hearn to be shown on Sky Sports and HBO on November 4th. As ever the card is very strong, with two world title fights, an eliminator and a European Title bout.

The main event comes in the light heavyweight division as Dmitry Bivol (11-0) looks to go from WBA interim champion to the full title against Trent Broadhurst (20-1) who looks an overmatched Australian here.

Jamie McDonnell (29-2-1) will once again feature in the co-main event, looking to repeat his victory over the Venezuelan Liborio Solis (25-5-1). The Doncaster man edged Solis that time to retain his WBA Bantamweight Title. McDonnell has had a knack of winning close decisions, three of his last four arguably coming in decisions he should have lost.

Scott Quigg (33-1-2) has an eliminator for the WBA Featherweight Title against Oleg Yefimovych (29-2-1). He was a world champion at super bantamweight and has had two wins at featherweight. Quigg has a size and youth advantage over the Ukrainian and should be heavy favourite to put himself in the position to fight for the WBA title, the regular one which is held by Abner Mares.

Dereck Chisora (26-7) will also challenge for the European Title against Agit Kabayel (16-0) in his first fight as a newly signed Matchroom boxer. Chisora has only lost to fighters who have at least fought at world level and arguably gave Wladimir Klitschko one of his toughest bouts for years. It will be a step up in competition for the German champion.

    Jamie will beat him again….close or otherwise…BTW against all odds he had more real success in the States than Frampton. Campbell, Burns or Fury!
