New European Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders has backed friend Frankie Gavin to beat Leonard Bundu this Friday night in Wolverhampton and become European Welterweight Champion.

Saunders defeated Italian Emanuele Blandamura last Saturday in Manchester with a stunning eighth round stoppage to add the prestigious European belt to his British and Commonwealth titles, and believes Birmingham star Gavin can halt Bundu to become a triple champion.

VACANT EUROPEAN MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
BILLY JOE SAUNDERS WKO8 EMANUELE BLANDAMURA
Tyson Fury has withdrawn from his heavyweight contest tonight against Alexander Ustinov after his uncle and first trainer, Hughie, has been taken seriously ill into hospital.

The multi-title show will still go ahead with Billy Joe Saunders challenging for the Vacant European Middleweight title against Emanuele Blandamura, Liam Smith defends his British Light-Middleweight title against Jason Welborn; Terry Flanagan challenges Martin Gethin for the Vacant British Lightweight Championship, and Jack Catterall face Nathan Brough for the Vacant Central Area Light-Welterweight Championship
The official weights from today's weigh-in held at the Manchester Conference Centre, Manchester, England, before tomorrow night's show at the Phones 4 U Arena.
Black Country banger Jason Welborn gets an unexpected chance to eradicate the memory of his tepid British welterweight challenge this weekend.

Eighteen months ago, he was soundly beaten in seven rounds by brilliant Brummie Frankie Gavin before his home faithful at the Walsall Town Hall.
After seven months on the physio's couch, unbeaten British light-middle king Liam Smith is keen to remind fans of his fast blossoming talent this weekend.

The 25 year old Liverpudlian looked lethal dispatching Heywood's Mark Thompson last December only to be subsequently sidelined with hand damage.

He makes a welcome return to duty at the Phones 4u Arena, Manchester this Saturday in what looks sure to be a feisty shootout with Black Country banger Jason Welborn.

Unbeaten middleweight Billy Joe Saunders continues to edge ever closer to his dream of becoming the first of travelling stock to win a boxing world title.

A 2008 Beijing Olympian at the age of just 18, the brilliant Hatfield southpaw has already cruised to Southern Area, Commonwealth, British and Intercontinental honours as a pro.
Tyson Fury will face big-hitting Belarusian Alexander Ustinov - the 6ft 7½in, 22st, giant who Dereck Chisora broke his hand against in sparring - this Saturday (26th July) at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).

Fury was left disappointed when Chisora withdrew from their fight yesterday after breaking his hand against Ustinov in their final sparring session, but promoter Frank Warren has moved quick to ensure all Fury's hard training hasn't gone to waste and secured him world ranked Ustinov.

From Minsk, the 6ft 7½in Ustinov has been at Chisora's North London gym for the last two weeks helping him to prepare for Fury, but now finds himself the man in the opposite corner with the chance of causing a huge shock and inflicting the first loss on the Wilmslow giant's record.
