Joshua Buatsi vs. Craig Richards live fight updates, start time, full undercard and boxing records

Joshua Buatsi and Craig Richards go head-to-head at London’s 02 Arena on Saturday night in what promises to be one of the most exciting all-British fights of the year.

Winner of the 2016 Olympic bronze medal, Buatsi puts his unbeaten record (15-0) on the line against former challenger Richards with the light-heavyweight looking to take another big step in his career at getting his own shot at the world title.

Dmitry Bivol — the man who handed Richards one of only two defeats in his career on points last year —currently holds the WBA title, while WBC and IBF champion Artur Beterbiev takes on WBO champion Joe Smith Jr next month.

Both fighters will be looking to put on a show for a packed out London crowd this evening and The Sporting News is on hand to bring you all the live updates.
