BARRY Hearn confidently predicts a sell-out night for his new Prizefighter Series, to be held on Friday April 11 at Bethnal Green's York Hall.

The event sees eight heavyweights go head-to-head for their share of a £67,000 total prize fund, with the winner scooping £25,000 and the runner-up taking £10,000.

The entries will pair up in four quarter-finals with the winners meeting in the semi-finals and final.

Each fight will be a maximum of three rounds long and Matchroom Sport boss Hearn insists the overwhelming response for tickets confirms his faith in the popularity of the new format.

"Fans like to see action, big punches, big knockouts and the Prizefighter series will deliver that in abundance," says Hearn. "The fans have clearly recognised this and snapped up the tickets for the show."

A promising line-up, including unbeaten prospects David Dolan, Dave Ferguson, Alex Ibbs and Ian Millarvie, has been confirmed for the York Hall event.

Tickets are available from Matchroom on 01277 359900.
