Interviews
Billy Joe Saunders' quest to become the first traveller to claim a boxing world title could be unhinged this weekend when Limerick southpaw Andy Lee gets first dibs at the currently vacant WBO middleweight strap.

The former Irish Olympian – born in London and a distant relative of Tyson Fury – squares off with Russia's former two-time world amateur champion Matt Korobov in Las Vegas. BoxNation screen live in the UK. Saunders is guaranteed first crack at the winner.
Ahead of his return to duty at Hillsborough Leisure Centre this Saturday, unbeaten British lightweight champion 'Turbo Terry' Flanagan gets taken through the mill by boxing writer Glynn Evans.
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.

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.
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.
Downsizing has enabled Liam 'The Machine' Williams to move up through the boxing ranks.

A former six time British amateur champion, the 22 year old from Clydach Vale in the Rhondda valley began his pro career in the middleweight division but his decision to streamline last year has taken him to the cusp of a British title challenge down at 11 stone.

Q&A WITH GARY CORCORAN

Posted on 27 August 2014 in Interviews
Could 2014-15, be a 'break-out' campaign for Paddington light-middleweight Gary Corcoran?

The 23 year old who they call 'Hellraiser' has ripped through his first ten pro opponents and is looking ominously more formidable with each passing outing.

A natural born scrapper with a rich Irish traveller heritage, Corcoran begins his season at eight round level at the York Hall, Bethnal Green – live on BoxNation- on September 20th but is predicting that it will conclude with a title belt clasped around his midriff.

Last week, boxing writer Glynn Evans called him to reflect on his career to date and discuss his ambitions for 2014-15.
