Billy Morgan Ready For York Hall Bout on February 19

Billy Morgan says he'll be a bigger box office hit than Billy Elliot.
 
And the East Ender reckons he'll take the whole of London by storm after impressing as an amateur.
 
Morgan won on his debut in October, out-classing Dan Carr.
 
And he's back in action on February 19 at Bethnal Green's York Hall.
 
Tony Bellew headlines in a British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight title fight against Ovill McKenzie, live on Sky Sports 1HD.
 
"London hasn't had a big boxing star for a few years now, but I can fill that gap alongside James DeGale," said the 20-year-old super-featherweight.
 
"I've already got a big fan base in the East End, but I want to get the whole of the capital behind me.
 
"It's my ambition to one day headline a show at the O2 Arena defending a world title.
 
'"It's not that far from where I grew up, and to fight there would be a dream come true."
 
Morgan is trained by Jimmy Tibbs alongside Kevin Mitchell and top prospect Billy Saunders.
 
He follows a long line of talent out of West Ham ABC where he won two Junior ABA titles and many more titles.
 
An England captain as an amateur, Morgan is determined to make a major impact in the next 12 months.
 
"British boxing is in fantastic shape at the moment, and there are some exciting fighters coming through," he said.
 
"I want to be known as one of the most best young prospects in the country, and I want people to sit up and take notice after my next fight."
 
Tickets, priced £40 and £60, are available from Ticketmaster 0844 847 2500 and www.frankwarren.tv
