On Saturday, October 4, Matchroom Boxing begin their Autumn schedule with the first of three fight events, starring WBA #3 Joshua Buatsi and WBA #2 Chantelle Cameron in their respective crucial championship clashes. Rio 2016 Olympic gold medallist Joshua Buatsi (12-0, 10KOs) defends his WBA International light-heavyweight title to unbeaten Croatian Marko Calic (11, 6KOs) over 10-rounds. Ghana-born Buatsi, 27 from Croydon, won his WBA regional strap via a first-round knockout in October 2018, then he defended it two months later in December with another first-round knockout win. Trained by Mark Gillespie, he then became British champion with a third-round knockout of Cumbria’s Liam Conroy (18-5-1, 9KOs), which was followed by a further two defences of the WBA ranking title – a fourth-round knockout then a seventh-round knockout.
