Audley Harrison, Rogan, Walker in Prizefighter, 2/23

Former Prizefighter champs Audley Harrison and Martin Rogan are two of the first names in a star-studded line-up for the Betfair Prizefighter International Heavyweights III live on Sky Sports from the York Hall in Bethnal Green on February 23.

The pair are joined by American Travis Walker and Brixton’s Ian Lewison on a huge night for British boxing, as Olympic captain Tom Stalker makes his professional debut before his new stablemate Kell Brook fights for a his first World title in America.

Rogan returns to Prizefighter for the 29th edition, nearly five years after he won the first ever Prizefighter in the famous east London home of boxing while Harrison credits Prizefighter for reigniting his career after he claimed the trophy in October 2009 to pave the way for his World title clash with David Haye.

The night represents a huge chance for 31 year old Lewison (6-1-1) to make a name for himself in the British heavyweight scene. KO king Walker hopes to reach 51 professional fights on the night and take the title back to Houston, Texas – and with 31 KOs from 39 wins, the 33 year old promises an all-action night.

Matchroom Sport announced the signing of Stalker at a press conference in Liverpool yesterday and the 28 year old will begin his professional journey at York Hall in front of the Sky cameras.

“The heavyweights edition of Betfair Prizefighter is always the most popular and with these colourful characters and former champions we are expecting an instant sell out at York Hall,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “I'm also delighted that the GB Olympic captain will make his professional debut on the show and will be live on Sky Sports.”

Tickets for the Betfair Prizefighter International Heavyweights III and the debut of Tom Stalker on February 23 at the York Hall in Bethnal Green are on sale now priced £40 Unreserved, £60 Ringside, £120 VIP from www.matchroomboxing.com or on 01277 359900.

This will be good if they can get some decent level sluggers in. McDermott, Maddalone, Meehan, Skelton, Oquendo, McCall, Witherspoon. The last one was slightly disappointing regarding fan friendly big hitting matches, which I think Hearn will try to remedy.…
