Young pro Tommy Ward, brother of English bantamweight champion Martin, is currently 3-0 (1). The 18-year-old is highly-rated and slated to take on decent journeyman Pavels Senkovs as he continues to learn his trade. Watch Tommy’s interview.
Unbeaten Anthony Nelson looks a very good prospect and has impressed in his 5-0 (1) career to date. The South Shields fighter, part of the Mal Gates stable, has terrific punch variety and work rate, and doesn’t allow opponents to settle for a second. Listen to Babyface’svideo interview.
The evening will be a memorable one for Chris Bennett. The 24-year-old, trained by former European lightweight title challenger Paul Charters, makes his debut on the show and will hope to get off to a winning start against well-travelled journeyman, Billy Smith. Watch Chris’ interview.
