highly-rated Heavyweight debutant Matty Harris have been
added to the undercard for Chris Eubank Jrís showdown with
Sven Elbir on October 2 at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London,

Udofia returns to Sky Sports following a spectacular
ninth-round TKO win over John Harding Jr to retain the
English Title on October 10 at the Marshall Arena in Milton
Keynes. The 28-year-old will now put his unbeaten record on
the line against London-based Albanian Xhuljo Vrenozi (17-3,
4 KOs) over ten rounds.
Having vacated the English Title and signed promotional
terms with Wasserman Boxing, 'Lightning' is ready to prove
his potential on another big card as he looks to move up the
rankings into title contention.
ďIíve been out of the ring for a while, but Iíve been
working non-stop behind the scenes,Ē says Udofia. ďItís an
honour to be on such an incredible card, itís time for me to
put on a show for the Wembley crowd and put Luton on the
Harris will make his professional debut in a four-round
contest at The SSE Arena, Wembley. The 6ft 8in Heavyweight
is one of the UKís most exciting boxing prospects. Having
passed the GB assessment, the 21-year-old opted to join the
paid ranks instead and spent lockdown sparring the best of
the British Heavyweight scene including Daniel Dubois,
Hughie Fury and Nathan Gorman.
To ensure he has had the perfect preparation for his debut
the Leamington Spa man has been living in a caravan on his
coach Edwin Cleary's drive.
"I'm extremely excited to be making my debut for Wasserman
Boxing on Sky Sports on October 2,Ē said Harris. ďThe lure
of the professional ranks has always been something I was
drawn to rather than a lengthy amateur career. Now I get the
chance to make my family proud and show my supporters what
Iím all about. Believe me when I tell you Iím going all the
way to the top.Ē
Promoter Nisse Sauerland said: ďThis is a fantastic
opportunity for Linus and Matty, two of Britainís brightest
boxing prospects, to showcase their skills on the big stage.
Linus is a slick fighter with power in both hands and is on
the verge of major title challenges. Matty is just starting
his journey but he has all the potential in the world and we
believe he can go a very long way.Ē
