There will be a fistic marathon tonight, on both sides of the pond, in Las Vegas, probably the most meaningful international fight of the year thus far takes place at the MGM Grand when Tim Bradley and Manny Pacquiao resume hostilities for the former's WBO World Welterweight title.

Both are in the upper echelons of the sport's mythical 'pound-for-pound' rankings. They met previously at the same venue in June 2012 with Bradley eloping with a split decision which mystified everybody. 'Pacman' appeared to have won at a canter.
Former Southern Area lightweight king Ronnie Davies expected to walk gently into the sunset once Chris Eubank Snr – the former two-weight world champion he trained – called time on his illustrious ring career back in 1998.

But now, at the ripe old age of 67, the former civil engineer who Eubank dubbed 'my pit bull' is back in the fray as head coach to the ex champ's son, Christopher Jr.
Here are the official weights from today's weigh-in held at Queensberry Promotions' office in Turnford, Hertfordshire, for tomorrow night's Frank Warren "Power Of London" event at the Copper Box Arena:
Four of the capital's brightest prospects get a chance to showcase their wares on the huge 'Power of London' promotion at the Copper Box Arena in the East End this Saturday but stringbean welterweight Bradley Skeete hopes that it's his name that's on everybody's lips once the dust has settled.

The unbeaten 26 year old from Penge in south London makes a maiden defence of his WBA InterContinental strap against quality Italian Tobia Giuseppe Loriga. And he knows that a sizzling display will elevate him to the front of the queue for when stablemate Frankie Gavin inevitably abdicates his British and Commonwealth belts.
Commonwealth Cruiserweight Champion Tony Conquest says he'll have to be on the ball if he is going to keep hold of his title in the first defence against hard-hitting Ovill McKenzie.

Conquest, who won the belt in a brutal battle against Daniel Ammann in February, takes on McKenzie on the title packed show at the Copper Box Arena tomorrow night (Saturday 12th April) alongside Frank Buglioni, Bradley Skeete and Lewis Pettitt who all feature in title action, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).
Fights fans should never jettison an opportunity to witness any of the world's top ten pound-for-pound prizefighters going into battle. However, when two from the sport's mythical listing go head-to-head against one another you can be sure the ensuing action will prove unmissable.

Such is the case this weekend when California's Timothy Bradley and Filipino Manny Pacquiao – ranked third and seventh respectively in Ring magazines 'P4P' ratings – reconvene at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas for the former's WBO welterweight strap.
Top Enfield talent Frank Buglioni is hungry for ring success now that he's had a pizza named after him.

The super-middleweight star defends his WBO European title for the second time this Saturday (12th April) at the Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in London, and will tuck into his special "Wise Guy" pizza once he's defeated challenger Sergey Khomitsky.
The 122lb super-bantam class is one of the most densely populated in Britain and Erith crowd pleaser Lewis Pettitt is hell bent on gatecrashing the party.

After a solid 14 fight apprenticeship, the swashbuckling 23 year old advances to 12 round level this weekend when he squares off with Brazilian banger Emerson Santos Carvalho for the Vacant WBA International title.
The Northamptonshire steel town of Corby might have the fastest growing population in England but it's yet to produce a single British boxing champion.

But that might all be about to change now that two-time and two-weight English ABA King Simon 'Sparkly' Barclay has crashed the pro scene, penning a promotional deal with Queensberry Promotions.
Lightweight warriors Martin Gethin and Derry Mathews clash in an exciting cross-roads showdown with everything on the line.

Gethin and Mathews will battle it out for the Vacant WBA Intercontinental Lightweight Championship* on Saturday 10th May at the Liverpool Olympia, with tickets priced at £40 and £60 available on Box Office 0151 263 6633 or www.liverpoololympia.com
