British super-featherweight champion is eyeing revenge when he risks
his British super-featherweight title against the Welshman in a rematch
at Ponds Forge Arena on Saturday September 24.
Sykes who has sold 200 tickets for the Steel City showdown said:
“Everything now is geared towards Buckland. There will be no excuses
and my trainer, Julian McGowan have worked on a game plan to beat
Buckland and I can assure that he won’t be doing another Prizefighter on

The Buckland loss is Gary’s only loss in 20 fights and he’ll win a Lonsdale belt outright if he succeeds next week.
added: “I still rank my victory over Anthony Crolla as the best
performance of my career, especially when you look what he has gone on
had bigger and better nights, winning the British title against Andy
Morris and the win over Carl Johanneson but the night I fought Crolla, I
felt brilliant and I know I will have to be the same against Buckland.”
