Craig Richards and Ricard Bolotniks will step into the ring at Wembley Arena on November 26 to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) International light heavyweight title. 

Both 175-pound contenders come with something in common and that is that both recently lost to Joshua Buatsi, so this fight poses a challenge and the possibility of recovering and continue on the road to the big fights. 

The 32-year-old Richards lost to Buatsi by unanimous decision in May of this year. Notably, he also had a world title fight against Dmitry Bivol in May 2021 and has a wealth of experience and an excellent record. 

Latvian Bolotniks is also 32 years old and has lost only one of his last nine fights against Buatsi in August 2021. The veteran returned to the ring in April this year to defeat Hrvoje Sep and break his unbeaten record in an eight round fight. 

The bout will be part of the Matchroom Boxing event at Wembley which will feature good fights and the presence of stars such as Dillian Whyte and Sandy Ryan. Richards has a record of 17 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw and 10 knockouts, while Bolotniks has 19 wins, 6 losses, 1 draw and 8 knockouts.
