Congratulations to headliners Nick Ball and Denzel Bentley

Ball and Bentley both boxed brilliantly

'The Wrecking Ball' and '2Sharp' were both in action over the weekend

HÖRFA Family members Nick Ball and Denzel Bentley both headlined last weekend on different sides of the Atlantic.

On Friday night, November 11, HÖRFA were sat ringside at the York Hall in London to watch Liverpool's Nick Ball destroy his Mexican opponent in just 108 seconds, live on BT Sport. 

25-year-old Nick, pictured below modelling our Phantom Punch t-shirt, knocked down Eduardo Ramirez Rubio three times in the first round to successfully defend his WBC Silver featherweight title and move up to No.11 in the world rankings.

On the other side of the pond, Battersea's Denzel Bentley, pictured below in our Classic t-shirt in khaki, gave a performance to proud of against fearsome Kazakh and defending WBO World middleweight champion Janibek Alimkhanuly.

The two-time British titlist took the world champ the distance over 12 championship rounds, losing by just four points in his first ever world title shot against a formidable champion who was on a six-fight knockout streak.

Marketing Director, Tim Rickson, said, "I was sat ringside, representing HÖRFA, on Friday night for Nick Ball's title defence and it was a stunning display of power and precision. Then, I was so proud of Denzel's world title bid over in Vegas on Saturday night. To jump up from British to World level takes some guts, but he has such belief in himself, which is just one of the characteristics that attracted HÖRFA to work with him.

"Ball is now 11th in the WBC world ratings, so he is in touching distance of a world title shot, and Bentley's strong showing should guarantee him a world level fight next, so it's exciting times for both these British boxers right now.

"HÖRFA will continue to do all we can to support these domestic talents in their respective careers."
