Boxing: Lee hopes to make his mark on Eurosport

LEE ‘Banjo’ Markham (7-1) and Harry ‘The Pocklington Rocket’ Matthews (12-6-1) both weighed in at 11st 3lbs for tomorrow night’s British Masters Middleweight clash at Grays Civic Hall, which is being aired on Eurosport from 8pm.

Goodwin Promotions, in association with Robert Waterman, stage their first show for the channel. The card also features Cambridgeshire’s Tornado Tyler Goodjohn (7-2) and Dave O’Connor (4-4) from Plymouth, who both weighed in at 9st 13lbs for their Masters ten rounder at light welter.

TV coverage starts with an intriguing eight threes clash between unbeaten Czech Stepan Horvarth (10-0) and Birmingham’s former British title challenger Max Maxwell (16-17-3).

Fresh from a shutout victory over former British cruiserweight champ Shane McPhilbin, Crayford’s Menay Edwards (9-2) takes on plucky Latvian Arturs Kulikauskis (9-15-3), who on his last visit to the UK also recorded a shutout over a former British cruiserweight champ Leon Williams (the man McPhilbin beat to gain title in January last year).

Other fights on the card include the debut of the London heavyweight AJ Carter, who takes on Preston’s Paul Morris (5-14-2).

Tickets are available from goodwinpromotions.co.uk. The action gets underway on Eurosport (SKY channel 410) from 8pm.
