Tyler Goodjohn (66kg) and Perry Moore (78kg) top the bill for Haddenham Boxing Club in Saturday's eagerly anticipated show at the Arkenstall Centre (doors open at 7pm, boxing starts at 8 pm).

"It's going to be a sell-out," said Haddenham head coach Mick Sawyer.

Stable-star Goodjohn faced an older opponent in the shape of Dee Hardman from Handsworth ABC, but Sawyer feels the home boxer should win.

"It is going to be a very good contest for Tyler," said Sawyer. "We've had to put him up in weight because we can't find anyone to fight him."

Moore meanwhile takes on B Ellis from Wodensborough ABC in another mouth-watering contest.

"Both boys have won four from five," said Sawyer, "so it should be a battle of the giants."

Schoolboy 'Golden Gloves' champion Nathan Dale (60kg) is also in action against the experienced northern fighter R Smith (St Michaels), and Haddenham representative Charlie Sawyer (51kg) has gone up in weight to face another St Michaels fighter in the shape of D Etches. Other bouts include Haddenham's Steven Moore (46kg) v A Herd (Southend ABC), Aaron Bennett (36kg, also Haddenham) v T Sparks (Chatteris) and J Bendall (Haddenham) v M Hills (Tottenham ABC).
