Liverpool rivals Paul Edwards and Kevin Satchell rivals have a big fence to clear at Aintree racecourse this Saturday (April 19) – each other!
Their fight will now be for the vacant Commonwealth flyweight championship, which has been relinquished by Chris Edwards.
It is now the third major title fight on the Frank MAloney promoted card topped by the vacant British and Commonwealth title clash between David Price (12-0) against Sam Sexton (15-2) at Aintree racecourse.
Former British champ Edwards (9-1) and Satchell (7-0) have put their friendship aside and promoter Frank Maloney is tipping a photo-finish.
Maloney said: “They are both every good young fighters and ambitious. It is a pick ‘em fight and so hard to pick a winner.
“When they were matched against each other neither one of them needed to think about accepting the challenge.
“I believe they have sparred together often, but what you do on the night in that ring is all that counts.
“I hope that whoever wins will get a crack at Chris Edwards for the British because they will have earned that Lonsdale belt chance.”
