Promoter Eddie Hearn hoping the fight will be eliminator for WBC title

Kevin Mitchell will face Daniel Estrada for the WBC Silver Lightweight title at The O2 on January 31, live on Sky Sports.

Dagenham’s Mitchell returns to action for the first time since his thrilling stoppage win over Ghislain Maduma at Wembley Stadium on May 31.

The Canadian gave ‘Mighty’ Mitchell all he could handle before the 30-year-old turned the tide and stopped the visitor in the 11th round.

Estrada’s last outing was a World title challenge against Omar Figueroa in Los Angeles in August on the undercard of Kell Brook’s World title win, where promoter Eddie Hearn got a first row look at the former Silver champion as he aims to make the bout a final eliminator for the World title.

“Mitchell vs. Estrada is a great fight,” said Hearn.

“I was ringside in Carson when he took on Figueroa for the WBC title and he put up a great fight.

“We have applied to the WBC to make this fight a final eliminator for the WBC title with the winner to face the winner of Jorge Linares vs. Javier Prieto.

“We will be pushing the request at the upcoming convention, I expect it to be successful. It’s all part of a cracking line up at the O2.”

The former West Ham amateur’s showdown with Estrada takes place on a huge night of boxing in the capital as Olympic gold medal sensation Anthony Joshua MBE kicks off 2015 with a huge test against former World title challenger Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson.

Joshua has a perfect ten KO wins from ten pro fights, and will put out a big statement if he can successfully defend his WBC International Heavyweight title against the American and make it 11 KOs against the man that has taken Vitali Klitschko, Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora the distance.
