8 FIGHTERS – 7 FIGHTS – 1 WINNER
SkySports Ringside preview the up-coming Prizefighter Last Man Standing – The Welterweights.

Interviews with Junior Witter, Dominic Ingle, Kell Brook, Jimmy Tibbs, Colin Lynes, Kevin McIntyre, Yassine El Maachi, John Wayne Hibbert, Nathan Graham, Bobby Gladman and Peter McDonagh.

The 19th edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournaments takes place at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Tuesday night from 8pm – with one of the best line-ups in Prizefighter history battling for the trophy and £32,000 winner’s cheque.

Former WBC World Light-Welterweight champion Junior Witter could face old foe Colin Lynes in the final with the pair separated in the draw. Ex-British and European belt holder Lynes took on Witter in 2005 at the same venue for Witter’s Commonwealth, European and British titles, losing to the Sheffield man on points.

The duo will have to do something special to set up such a clash though, with both Witter and Lynes facing tough quarter-final assignments. Witter must get past Aylesbury’s Nathan Graham in the second quarter-final of the night, and the victor will then face the winner of the opening bout of the night, when former British Welterweight champion Kevin McIntyre faces unbeaten Essex man John Wayne Hibbert.
