Liverpool light-welterweight Thomas Stalker was once the world's top ranked amateur lightweight but knows, at 30, there's little margin for error if he's to repeat the trick as a professional.

The 2012 Team GB Olympic skipper – who struck gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and also medalled at both the European and World Senior meets – jettisoned a British title eliminator in favour of an audacious attempt to crash the world rankings.
Having already asserted hegemony over the domestic light-middleweight crop, reigning British champion Liam Smith is now keen to conquer the world.

The stone-faced 26 year old – third eldest of the four fighting brothers – presently holds top 12 world rankings with both the IBF and WBO and he'll be hoping to make inroads into the WBA's listings this weekend when he confront's Hungary's Zoltan Gera for that body's Continental title at the Echo Arena in his native Liverpool on Saturday.
British and Commonwealth flyweight boss Kevin 'Ice Man' Satchell returns to action this Saturday when he challenges Belarus hardman Valery Yanchy for the European title before the Scouse faithful at The Echo Arena in his home city this Saturday.

Twenty six year old 'Satch' has barely put a foot wrong racing to 12-0 (2) and will be strongly fancied to become Britain's first continental champion at eight stone for 14 years.

IN DEPTH WITH ADAM DINGSDALE

Posted on 21 October 2014 in Interviews
Expect a battle of the ages when local veteran Derry Mathews locks horns with rising Adam Dingsdale over 12 rounds for the WBA Continental lightweight belt at Liverpool's Echo Arena this Saturday.

Mathews, of course, is a time served Scouse ring legend, whose 46 fight CV is garnished with the WBU featherweight and British and Commonwealth lightweight titles.
Superstar in waiting Paul Butler is already in the history annuls as the fastest Englishman to capture a world title after dethroning Stuey Hall to bag the IBF World Bantamweight title in just his 16th pro state last June.

And the pride of Ellesmere Port had expected to become the first Brit for a century to drop a weight and collect a second world crown this Saturday by scalping IBF super-fly boss Zolani Tete at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
Liverpool ONE will host a free-to-watch public boxing training session for Merseyside stars Liam Smith, Paul Butler, Derry Mathews, Kevin Satchell and Tom Stalker and more on Wednesday 22nd October.

The boxers all feature on the big-fight night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday 25th October and will be put through their paces in an action-packed work-out by their trainers to give the fans a glimpse of how preparations are going.
Despite never taking part in a competitive fight himself, it has taken Nottinghamshire based former squaddie Jason McClory just six years as a licence holder to establish himself as one of the leading matchmakers in the country.

The 37-year-old father of four had the daunting task of following on from the late, great Dean Powell as fight fixer at Queensberry Promotions.

IN DEPTH WITH JAY HARRIS

Posted on 20 October 2014 in Interviews
Swansea super-fly Jay Harris has designs on emulating his father by becoming British champion.

Dad Peter, a flame haired featherweight reigned on the domestic throne in 1988 and battled five world champions in a 33 fight pro career from 1983 to 1996. Earlier indications suggest young Jay, a former British amateur champion who's already won three straight in the paid code, could be treading a similar path.
One of the brightest young talents to emerge on BoxNation screens last season was stylish Chingford super-middle Tom Baker.

The 6ft 1in redhead with the ramrod left jab made five starts since July 2013 and excelled in each to advance his slate to a perfect 9-0.
Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex last night attended a gala dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane to help raise funds to find a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a painful genetic skin blistering condition which, in the worst cases, can be fatal.

The annual gala dinner, organised by DEBRA (the national charity that supports individuals and families living with EB) and boxing promoter Frank Warren (DEBRA Vice President), celebrated an incredible tenth year and after last night will have raised well over £2million for the charity. Named 'The DEBRA Fight Night', the special anniversary was headlined by the British Armed Forces military boxing teams who battled it out head-to-head.
