English title holder Adil Anwar took the
Betfair team for a tour of his gym. – Anwar’s trainer, Mark Bateson, thinks that if he wins the competition,
which has been touted as Prizefighter’s toughest line-up, he will “be up
there with the big-boys.”


Unbeaten Tyrone Nurse took the Betfair team for a tour of his gym. – Chris Aston, Nurse’s dad and trainer thinks his son can do well if he sticks to
the game-plan: “The plan for Prizefighter is to use his boxing skills
and not get drawn into a fight with these guys.”

Adil Anwar leads the betting with Betfair as 3.5 (5-2) favourite,
with the unbeaten Leeds man relinquishing his English welterweight title
this week. Hot on the 22 year-olds heels are fellow unbeaten contenders
Tyrone Nurse at 4.8 (4-1) and Dale Miles at 5.4 (9-2).
Prizefighter Lightweights II


Liverpudlian John Watson is a 7 (6-1) poke ahead of 9.2 (8-1) rated
Scotsman Barry Morrison. Midland’s trio Young Mutley at 12.5 (between
11-1 and 12-1), Mark Lloyd 13.5 (between 12-1 and 13-1) and Dean
Harrison 28 (27-1) complete the line-up.

Before the action gets underway live on Sky Sports, unbeaten young
guns Tommy Ghent and Ryan Aston both feature in Prizefighter Prospect
bouts.
