Boxing on ITV is nearing its end, and as The Boxing Bulletin's Dave Oakes put it, "It looks like ITV’s boxing coverage is going to limp off our screens rather than going out in a blaze of glory."
This was supposed to be a promising scrap between Barker and Wayne Elcock, but Elcock came down with the flu. In steps young Danny Butler, who looks like a high school kid in a movie set in 1989 California. Butler fought a full ten-round fight just two weeks ago. An upset today would be truly shocking for UK boxing.
The show begins at 2:30pm ET.
