BETFAIR PRIZEFIGHTER

This Saturday night is Prizefighter, and its the cruiserweights again in the third installment of the 200lb division one night, eight man knockout tournament by Matchroom Boxing.

There is a strong line-up completing the 8 places, and it should be another swashbuckling night of action at the York Hall, Bethnal Green in London. (May 18).

The full line-up

  • Conall Carmichael (4-0)
  • Tony Conquest (10-1)
  • Neil Dawson (11-1)
  • Danny McIntosh (13-4)
  • Wadi Camacho (6-1)
  • Nathan Owens (5-0-1)
  • Shane McPhilbin (8-6)
  • Hari Miles (7-7)

The action at York Hall will be broadcast live, on what should be a good night of British boxing action on Sky Sports, with Lee Purdy challenging Devon Alexander for the IBF welterweight title in Atlantic City later that same night and looking to become British boxing’s 5th current world champion.

“The cruiserweight division is wide open right now and the winner is going to put themselves right in contention for major title honours,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

Shane McPhilbin says he is back in love with boxing ahead of his appearance and says after losing his last 4 fights, this is the perfect opportunity to turn around his form.

Hari Miles thinks he could handle the step-up in class to British or European level which is the chance he will get if he wins the Prizefighter on Saturday night.

Conall Carmichael who once fought Andre Ward as an amateur says there’s no pressure on him ahead of his appearance in Prizefigher and feels with a bit of luck he can claim the trophy like his good friend Martin Rogan did.
