Expect a fight of the year, says Conah Walker ahead of crunch contest

By Matt Bozeat

EDDIE Hearn has been told he will be smiling again soon. The Matchroom chief was on the receiving end of a 5-0 whitewash from arch-rivals Queensberry in their ‘5 vs 5’ match in Saudi Arabia last weekend.

If Conah Walker is right, Hearn will also remember 2024 as the year he staged the domestic fight of the year.

Walker will have some say in the matter. The fight he’s tipping to top the polls is his 10-rounder against Lewis Crocker in Birmingham on Saturday, June 22.

“We are both exciting, come forward fighters,” said the Wolverhampton welterweight, “and it’s a 50-50 fight.”

Perhaps it will top his win over Cyrus Pattinson last August?
