James Tennyson and Jamie Conlan will get the chance to take their careers to the next level on Saturday night.

Belfast featherweight Tennyson will challenge Ryan Walsh for the English fighter’s British title, while Conlan will try to dethrone Super-flyweight champion Anthony Nelson for his Commonwealth belt at the Copper Box in London.

Tennyson – who has won 13 of his 17 fights by KO – will have the toughest assignment of his career as Walsh is an experienced operator whose only defeat came at the hands of IBF World champion Lee Selby.

And the fight should be a great indicator of how far Tennyson can go in the professional ranks.

And Belfast’s Conlan will be looking to get his hands on the Commonwealth title against Nelson.

Conlan will be looking to grab the title and then try to get a clash with former World champion Paul Butler.

Jamie is a talent but the time has come to deliver on the ability he has.

There was, however, disappointment for Alfredo Meli as his fight this weekend was called off at the last minute.
