The domestic blockbuster takes place at West Ham United's ground on Saturday 14th July, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546).
Dyer, star of hit movie Human Traffic and TV series Deadliest Men, filmed a special promo for the fight with a BoxNation crew around Upton Park today.
"What makes this fight so exciting is that it's so unpredictable and both fighters are going to be knocking seven bells out of each other," Said Dyer.
"There hasn't been a fight I've been looking forward to more than these two heavyweights getting it on and they're both British which makes it a must see for fans,"
"Both guys have got so much hate in them towards each other and it's all going to explode in the ring on the night,"
"I can't wait for it, It's too tough to call a winner, but it's going to be one hell of a fight."
Atlantic City Prospects pluis Jesse Hart Added to July 7 Card at Bally's AC
Atlantic City, NJ—Two of Atlantic City’s top ring prospects, light-heavyweight Lavarn Harvell and lightweight Osnel Charles, will be in action Saturday evening, July 7, in the Grand Ballroom of Bally’s Atlantic City.
Topping the seven-bout card is a scheduled 10-round contest for the vacant NABF middleweight title, featuring Patrick Majewski, of Atlantic City, against Chris Fitzpatrick, of Albany, NY. First fight 7.30 pm.
Harvell, 24, is fresh off a first-round knockout June 13 in Newark, NJ, over Brian Donohue, of Philadelphia, PA. He takes on Mojeed Okedara, of Silver Springs, MD, in a six-round contest.
A pro since 2008, Harvell (right) is 11-0, 6 K0s. He has scored three knockouts in 2012, having previously blasted out Anthony Pietrantonio, of Youngstown, OH, in three rounds and Tommy Connelly, of Charleston, AR, in one.
Okedara, 37, is originally from Nigeria, where he claims a 9-5 record with eight knockout victories, one of them earning him the Nigerian super middleweight belt in 2009.
This will mark Okedara’s first fight in the USA and he has knocked out his last four opponents.
Charles, 28, dropped his last start, a six-round decision to Chris Finley, of Detroit, MI, on May 19 in the same ring. He is 9-3, 1 K0, and looking to make a fresh start against Raphael Luna, of Albany, NY, in a six-rounder.
Luna, 30, is 4-5-1, 1 K0, and has not fought since losing an eight-round majority decision to Luis Rodriguez, of Puerto Rico, on Sept. 11, 2010, in Albany.
Also appearing in his East Coast debut is two-time National Golden Gloves champion Jesse Hart, of Philadelphia, who takes on Steven Chadwick, of Jacksonville, FL, in a four-round middleweight contest.
Hart, 22, son of 1970s middleweight contender Eugene Cyclone Hart, knocked out Manuel Eastman, of Albuquerque, NM, in his pro debut June 9 on the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley card at the MGM in Las Vegas, NV.
Three additional fights complete the card.
