Tyler Denny keen on British and European title clash against Nathan Heaney

A thrilled Tyler Denny is now shifting his focus to bigger and more lucrative fights after his victory over Felix Cash last night in Birmingham.

Denny (19-2-3, 1 KO) secured a fifth-round technical decision win after Cash sustained a cut from an accidental head clash. This win allowed the 32-year-old to retain his European middleweight title, marking a significant milestone in his career.

Boxxer-promoted Denny fought on a Matchroom promotion, adding a layer of satisfaction to the victory for his promoter, Ben Shalom, who was present at Resorts World Arena to support his fighter. Shalom disclosed post-fight that Denny is set to return on a show scheduled for September 28.

“I have a lot of ground to cover since this is my first fight this year,” Denny shared with Boxing News.

“I was supposed to fight at the end of February or early March, but due to purse bids, the fight got delayed to the end of June, which was less than ideal. But, Felix needed the time, and here we are.”

When it comes to his next opponent, the Wordsley-born southpaw is realistic and understands that a match-up with Chris Eubank Jr is unlikely. However, he is open to facing someone closer to home.

“I doubt that’ll happen. I get it. If I were Chris Eubank Jr, I’d want big pay-per-view fights. I’m not naive. But, if the opportunity arises, I’ll grab it with my fans behind me 100%.”

While Denny holds the European title, his BCB Promotions stablemate Nathan Heaney is the current British middleweight champion. Heaney is gearing up for a rematch against Brad Pauls on July 20, following their draw in March.

“I’d take on Heaney any day,” Denny expressed.

“I like him, and if we can make good money for both of us, why not? But he has to deal with Brad Pauls first, so I don’t want to disrespect him. If we can put the British and European titles on the line, count me in 100%.”
