The Newcastle Arena will witness a very interesting World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight eliminator between two undefeated fighters. Britain’s Thomas Patrick Ward will face Uzbekistan’s Otabek Kholmatov in a showdown that will be a must-win. 

Patrick Ward is ranked number one by the pioneering organization and will face Kholmatov, who is ranked number two. Both are fighting for a shot at the world title, currently held by Leigh Wood. 

The Brit is a technically sound fighter who knows what it’s like to fight every round. His main objective will be to use his tools to contain his opponent and a victory that will be important for his career. 

On the other hand, Kholmatov is a puncher who comes from stopping the undefeated record of Andranik Grigorian in his most recent fight. He is one of the great Uzbek fighters who are getting more and more noticed in world boxing and wants to emulate his compatriot, world champion Murodjon Akhmadaliev.

Patrick Ward has a record of 33 wins, 1 draw and 5 knockouts. Kholmatov has 9 knockouts in 10 fights won.
