The first Prizefighter tournament of the new boxing season on Sky Sports comes your way today at 3 p.m. EDT, and Bad Left Hook will be here with live, round-by-round coverage of the tournament.
Today will mark the first time that the tournament has had a live drawing for the first round matchups, and Carl Froch and Jamie Moore will be the stars pulling the names and setting up the fights. Here are your eight junior middleweight competitors for today's tournament:
- Kris Agyei-Dua (3-0, 0 KO)
- JJ Bird (6-5-2, 0 KO)
- Wayne Goddard (9-0, 2 KO)
- Steve Harkin (5-1-2, 1 KO)
- Nick Quigley (7-0, 0 KO)
- Mehrdud Takaloo (26-7, 17 KO)
- Jeff Thomas (9-6-2, 1 KO)
- Peter Vaughan (3-0-1, 1 KO)
For star power, this one is very low, but these eight guys could use the money that comes with winning Prizefighter, and the notoriety wouldn't hurt, either. It's hard to have a Prizefighter tournament that doesn't entertain with the format. We might have another Rocky Fielding in this one. Join us this afternoon!
