A Matchroom Boxing NXTGEN card will be headlined by red-hot prospect Cyrus Pattinson against former British and Commonwealth champion Chris Jenkins on March 18. The 10-round welterweight bout, plus undercard action, will be broadcast by DAZN.

Pattinson, 28, is a skilled southpaw who picked up a slew of amateur medals before turning to the paid ranks in 2021. The Newcastle man takes an audacious jump up in class against Jenkins, but fully endorses the fast-track approach taken by his promoter.

“I’m absolutely buzzing to be fighting in Newcastle on March 18,” said Pattinson. “2023 is a huge year for me and to be kicking it off by fighting in front of a home crowd in unreal. Nobody creates an atmosphere like the Geordies and I’m determined to put on a show for them in what is the biggest fight of my career so far. I cannot wait.”

Jenkins has been a professional for 11 years and has mixed with some of the best on the U.K. domestic scene. The 34-year-old Welshman, known as “Rok-n-Rolla," is looking to get back in the title picture and is confident of springing the upset.

“A win that I’m more than capable of come March 18 would most definitely put me back in the mix,” said Jenkins. “I’m an old school fighter, I’ll fight anyone!

“I’m expecting Cyrus to come out of the blocks like he always does and I’ll be ready for him. He looks a good come-forward fighter. He does most things well, but I’ve seen a few flaws in his fighting that I think I can use in the fight.”
