Joshua Buatsi and Craig Richards are both approaching this weekend’s fight with the ambition of moving into contention for a title shot.
Undefeated Buatsi has formerly held the 175lb British title, while Richards won the title back in November 2020, but lost it in a match up with Dmitry Bivol five months later.
While Buatsi is yet to taste defeat since his professional boxing debut in 2017, his opponent will be hoping to avoid adding to the two losses he endured against Bivol and Frank Buglioni earlier in his career.
