Prizefighter Light Welterweights III - Full Tourney Draw

The draw for the Betfair Prizefighter Light Welterweights III sees Danny Connor and Charlie Rice kick-off Saturday night’s action at the sold-out York Hall in Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports 1HD from 8pm.

Southern Area champion Connor and unbeaten 21 year old Rice will battle for a spot in the first semi-final where they will face either Ryan ‘Crash Bang’ Taylor and Matty Tew, who clash in the second quarter final.

Taylor’s first loss as a pro came against Liam Shinkwin when they met for the vacant Southern Area lightweight title in March, and they could meet in the final after Shinkwin was drawn in the third quarter final against Eren Arif. The winner of that fight will face either Tony Owen or Chris Jenkins, who complete the line-up in quarter final number four.

The 31st edition of the Betfair Prizefighter series is part of a great night of action in east London as lightweight star Kevin Mitchell returns to the ring from a ten month absence following his World title challenge against Ricky Burns in September, with the action kicked off on the night action by former Commonwealth welterweight champion John O’Donnell in a four-rounder.

BETFAIR PRIZEFIGHTER LIGHT WELTERWEIGHTS III DRAW

Quarter Final 1 Danny Connor v Charlie Rice

Quarter Final 2 Ryan Taylor v Matty Tew

Quarter Final 3 Liam Shinkwin v Eren Arif

Quarter Final 4 Tony Owen v Chris Jenkins

Put your tampons back in, ladies. I've been bored watching plenty of ELITE fighters and thrilled watching a pair of journeymen. An exciting fight is an exciting fight. I bet you're Man U or Chelsea fans too.

Get rid of this crap and spend OUR subscription money on real boxing matches Sky. Talk about flogging a dead horse. That lineup almost made me vomit. How about showing more top level international (USA basically) fights instead this journeyman…
