The first five fighters have been selected for the Betfair
Prizefighter Welterweights III at the Civic Hall, Wolverhampton live on
Sky Sports on January 19. Unbeaten trio Glenn Foot, Dale Evans and Chad Gaynor are joined by ‘Notorious’ Nasser Al Harbi and Karl Place in the 28th
edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournaments, with
promoter Eddie Hearn having the tough task of picking the final three
names from a list of 20 boxers.
The third Welterweight Prizefighter is part of a great line-up of
boxing in the Black Country with Britain’s hottest young fighter Kal
Yafai tasting his first action of 2013 as he hunts the big names and
titles in the bantamweight division.
“I’m glad that we have selected the first five for the tournament but
now I am left with a real dilemma with the final three,” said Hearn.
“The interest has been overwhelming and I have some difficult decisions
to make such is the quality of names in front of me. What is certain is
that the eight fighters in the final line-up will put everything on the
line to lift the trophy.”
