Foot, Evans, Gaynor, Harbi, Place To Be in Prizefighter

The first five fighters have been selected for the Betfair Prizefighter Welterweights III at the Civic Hall, Wolverhampton live on Sky Sports on January 19.

Unbeaten trio Glenn Foot, Dale Evans and Chad Gaynor are joined by ‘Notorious’ Nasser Al Harbi and  Karl Place in the 28th edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournaments, with promoter Eddie Hearn having the tough task of picking the final three names from a list of 20 boxers.

The third Welterweight Prizefighter is part of a great line-up of boxing in the Black Country with Britain’s hottest young fighter Kal Yafai tasting his first action of 2013 as he hunts the big names and titles in the bantamweight division.

“I’m glad that we have selected the first five for the tournament but now I am left with a real dilemma with the final three,” said Hearn. “The interest has been overwhelming and I have some difficult decisions to make such is the quality of names in front of me. What is certain is that the eight fighters in the final line-up will put everything on the line to lift the trophy.”

Tickets for the Yafai and the Betfair Prizefighter Welterweights III are on sale now from Matchroom Boxing priced at £40 unreserved, £60 ringside and £100 VIP – tickets can be bought online at www.matchroomboxing.com or on 01277 359900.
