Prizefighter names revealed

The first five names for the next edition of Prizefighter - Welterweights III have been announced by promoter Eddie Hearn.

The event, at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall on January 19, will see unbeaten trio Glenn Foot, Dale Evans and Chad Gaynor joined by 'Notorious' Nasser Al Harbi and Karl Place.

The eight-man, knockout tournament is part of a great line-up of boxing in the Black Country with Britain's hottest young fighter Kal Yafai tasting his first action of 2013 as he hunts the big names and titles in the bantamweight division.

"I'm glad that we have selected the first five for the tournament but now I am left with a real dilemma with the final three," said Hearn.

"The interest has been overwhelming and I have some difficult decisions to make such is the quality of names in front of me.

"What is certain is that the eight fighters in the final line-up will put everything on the line to lift the trophy."
