Trainer Anthony Farnell has backed Matthew Hall for Euro glory next weekend.
 .
The Mancunian hot-shot tackles Lukas Konecny at the LG Arena, Birmingham, on September 18th.
.
It forms part of Frank Warren‘s Magnificent Seven show live and exclusive on Sky Box Office.
Until last week, Hall was not even on the card.
.
But he stepped in after European light-middleweight champion Ryan Rhodes withdraw through injury.
Now he fights for the vacant belt.
.
And young trainer Farnell, himself a former WBU champion, says Hall is more than ready for his shot.
“Matthew was working hard for a title fight the week after, so it was pretty straightforward to make the switch,” said Farnell.
.
“Since he got the news he has been really buzzing. I really believe that Hall can win this fight, and if I didn’t think that then I would not have allowed him to take it.
.
“Konecny is an experienced campaigner and he has fought for a world title before.
.
“But you don’t have to go looking for him, and with the kind of power Hall has, that could play right into our hands.
.
“Matthew has had some great sparring with the likes of Frankie Gavin and Tony Bellew, and I promise that he will deliver next Saturday.
.
“He’s had a couple of set backs in the past, but that makes him more determined than ever before to capitalise on this unexpected chance.”
