Nathan Heaney takes on Brad Pauls in Birmingham today!

Nathan Heaney will defend his British middleweight title against Brad Pauls in the main event of a Queensberry Promotions card from London today, with Joe Joyce and more returning on the undercard.

Heaney scored one of the most emotionally satisfying upsets of 2023 by beating Denzel Bentley, and now makes his first defense of the belt he won that night.

We’ll be here with coverage starting from 2:30 pm ET, with the fights airing on ESPN+ in the United States and TNT Sports in the United Kingdom.
