For the 9th edition of the Monte-Carlo Boxing Bonanzathe Casino de Monte-Carlo and Matchroom Boxing are happy to announce a night of world boxing championship events that promises to be nothing short of extraordinary. The event will take place on Saturday, 4 November from 19:00 in the prestigious Casino de Monte-Carlo right in the heart of the Principality of Monaco. Boxers of international calibre will fight in a ring set up specially for the event in the casino's Salle Médecin.  A total of 350 lucky spectators will come to these private gaming rooms, or Salons Privés, for a singular experience they are unlikely to forget. 

"Hosting the Monte-Carlo Boxing Bonanza in our historic private gaming room presents our customers and casino-goers with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity", affirms Gaming Director Pascal Camia. "This could only happen at the Casino de Monte-Carlo. I'm certain it will be an experience the audience will always remember."

"We're thrilled to be back in Monaco. We're certain this Boxing World Championship will be magical", states Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, enthusiastically. I'm looking very forward to seeing Dmitry Bivol, an up-and-coming young international boxer, and of course the world title rematch with Jamie McDonnell and Liborio Solis."

Four fights will take place during the prestigious event: WBA light heavyweight and bantamweight world championships, a qualifying fight for the WBA featherweight world championships, and a European heavyweight championship match. 

The headline event will be with formidable Russian boxer Dmitry Bivol, who is itching to get yet another KO on his already impressive record. He will fight 26-year-old Australian boxer Trent Broadhurst in the hope of reclaiming the title of light heavyweight champion.

In the bantamweight class, British boxer Jamie McDonnell will defend his WBA title against Venezuelan Liborio Solis.

British boxer Scott Quigg will be fighting to qualify for the world featherweight championship against Ukrainian Oleg Yefimovych.

Finally, British heavyweight Dereck Chisora will challenge German Agit Kabayel for what would be his second European heavyweight championship title.

The Monte-Carlo Boxing Bonanza at the Casino de Monte-Carlo is a major international sporting event that contributes to Monaco's worldwide renown.
