Jimmy Tibbs says that his charge Billy Joe Saunders training at a foreign camp for the big showdown with rival Chris Eubank Jnr brings back memories of Nigel Benn's epic win over Mauro Galvano.

The legendary East End trainer took British boxing great Benn to a Tenerife training camp for his WBC World Super-Middleweight title challenge against Italian Galvano in 1992, the results showed with Benn pulling off a memorable victory in Rome, stopping Galvano in four rounds.
Domestic rivals Frankie Gavin and Bradley Skeete started their war-of-words as they head towards their Saturday 29th November showdown at the ExCeL London.

Gavin defends his British Welterweight title with the Vacant Commonwealth title also on the line, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky 437/HD 490, Virgin 546 and Talk Talk 525).
Promoter Frank Warren presents Championship Boxing "The Magnificent Seven" from the Liverpool Echo Arena.

Early results...
Frankie Gavin roared back to winning ways last night in Wolverhampton when he blasted out Mate Hornyak inside two rounds sending a warning to rival Bradley Skeete.

The Birmingham hotshot had his first fight since his controversial split decision points loss to European Welterweight Champion Leonard Bundu when he challenged the Italian for the crown in the same ring back in August.
Boxing has its critics – and I've taken a few whacks on the chin defending what I still believe is the Noble Art – but I can assure you of one thing:  It isn't bent.

And not a lot of sports can say that these days.
The official weigh-in today was held at the Epstein Theatre in Liverpool for tomorrow night's show at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
Promoter Frank Warren today won libel damages of £50,000 and substantial costs from Alex Morrison.

Mr. Warren sued Alex Morrison after he made false allegations about the reasons for the postponement of Ricky Burns's fight against Miguel Vazquez.  In deciding damages today the Court found that the allegations were a "serious attack" on the reputation of Frank Warren.
Savvy old sage Alan Smith has been scheming up a spot of giant killing.

Head honcho at the flourishing iBox gym in Bromley, Kent, the 48 year old bald eagle steered both Gary Woolcombe and Sam Webb to British light-middleweight honours. Latterly, he has navigated welterweight Bradley Skeete's rise to mandatory challenger for the British title and Lewis Pettitt's advance into the world super-bantamweight rankings.
The Vauxhall Motors ABC in Ellesmere Port has proven a fertile breeding ground for prizefighters over the years.

Bantamweight buzzsaw Paul 'Livewire' Lloyd rose to British, Commonwealth and European honours as a pro during the late 1990s whilst, today, former VM graduates Paul Butler and Matty Fagan are kicking up a storm.
Derry Mathews still has designs to be recognised as something other than just one of the most exciting and sporting prizefighters of his generation.

Two reigns on both the British and Commonwealth lightweight thrones hardly do justice to the monster hitting Scouse warrior who has partaken in several of the most savage domestic ring wars of the last decade.
