Reigning IBF bantamweight king Stuey Hall believes the time has come for those within the industry to pay him his props.

The 34 year old from Darlington is presently in the richest vein of form of his six year, 20 fight pro career and enters Saturday's civil war with Ellesmere Port's Paul Butler as the naturally bigger, more seasoned fighter. Yet despite profiting from home court at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, Stuey knows he'll enter the ring as a sizeable underdog with the bookies and a rank outsider with most of the media.
Fight fans should finally discover the full extent of Paul Butler's precocious talent this Saturday when he challenges Darlington's iron tough IBF bantam boss Stuey Hall at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena.

A former world class amateur, the 25 year old from Ellesmere Port cruised to British and Commonwealth honours plus a string of InterContinental belts down at super-fly whilst posting perfect 15-0 stats as a pro. And the media have been left drooling over his silky skills and rib bending body attacks.
Teeside light-welter Josh Leather ruled England in the amateurs and intends extending that dominance in the paid code.

The 5ft 10in former ABA champion has already raced to four wins as a pro and steps up to six-threes level on Saturday at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle. He meets Liverpool's Tommy Carus on the undercard to the IBF bantam showdown between Darlington's Stuey Hall and unbeaten Ellesmere Port hotshot Paul Butler.
talkSPORT, the world's biggest sports radio station, will broadcast live radio commentary of the upcoming huge heavyweight showdown between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury.

The heavyweight dustup between British boxing's two most controversial stars which will serve as a final eliminator for the chance to face Wladimir Klitschko for the World heavyweight title and continues a summer of marquee boxing events in the UK.
There's nothing like a top domestic bang-up to get the juices flowing and that's certainly what sports fans can look forward to when super-middleweights Carl Froch and George Groves renew their hostility at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Both are good operators with big personalities and bigger egos. The genuine friction between the former spar mates – stoked further by referee Howard Foster's controversial ninth round intervention which allowed Froch to retain his IBF and WBA belts in Manchester last November – has led to a huge turn out at the national stadium.
Red hot light-welterweight Bradley Saunders will challenge for his first professional title at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Saturday 7th June.

The undefeated 28-year-old from Sedgefield, a former Beijing Olympian and 2007 Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist, faces Villi Piispenen for the Vacant WBO Intercontinental title on the undercard of Stuart Hall's IBF World Bantamweight title defence against Paul Butler.
Liam Walsh and Gary Sykes are both promising a war in their British and Commonwealth Super-Featherweight title showdown on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

Dewsbury hero Sykes reclaimed the British title in a thriller last Saturday night against Jon Kays when he came back from a cut eye in the first round and a knockdown in the second to stop Kays in the tenth.
It may have taken longer than expected but 2014 should finally see the starlets of Britain's heralded Beijing Olympic squad rise to the fore.

Over the next three month's middleweight gold medallist James DeGale, ex world amateur champion Frankie Gavin and Billy Joe Saunders – who many predicted would be best suited to the pro code – all feature in fights that effectively serve as world title eliminators.
Birmingham starlet Joe Costello says he can become Britain's answer to Mexican idol Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Flame-haired Costello made a sensational start to his pro career earlier this month in Liverpool when he knocked out experienced veteran Youseff Al Hamidi in the first round, earning a place on the big Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury card on Saturday 26th July at Manchester's Phones 4 U Arena.
