For this money, viewers will be able to watch Prince Naseem defend his two world featherweight titles against European and Commonwealth contender, Billy Hardy. In the second fight of the night, Robin Reid he takes on Henry Wharton. And, in the third world title fight, Steve Foster challenges America's Ronald Wright.
