Unbeaten prospects Travis Dickinson and Llewellyn Davies will put their records on the line when they meet in the second quarter-final of Prizefighter Light Heavyweights II at Olympia on Saturday January 29.
Coventry’s Davies, who has five wins from as many bouts so far in his professional career, believes the winner of his fight with Dickinson will win the 16th Prizefighter competition and take home the £32,000 first prize.
‘Out of the eight contenders both Travis and myself are the most ambitious fighters, and whoever can cope with the pressure on the night will go onto win,’ said Llewellyn.
‘We both have what it takes to go on from a victory in Prizefighter and win titles on many levels.’
With current Commonwealth champion Tony Bellew already stating that he would be open to fight the champion, there is everything on the line for the eight Prizefighters.
In the first quarter-final of the night, unbeaten Romford man Billy Slate will take on Margate banger Jack Morris with the winner facing either Dickinson or Davies in the semis.
In the bottom half of the draw, former British Champ Tony Dodson meets seasoned campaigner Michael Banbula, while unbeaten Menay ‘The Emperor’ Edwards faces off against former England captain Joe Smyth.
