Big test for Rotherham boxers

PROMOTER Dave Coldwell says the title challenges for top Rotherham boxers Nav Mansouri and Chad Gaynor start tonight at the Magna Centre.

Mansouri takes on Simone Lucas in his first light-middleweight outing since last month’s Prizefighter semi-final defeat and welterweight Gaynor fights Manchester’s William Warburton.

Coldwell has high hopes for both fighters but knows that defeat for either tonight will rock them back on their heels.

Mansouri and Gaynor are part of a five-fight bill which also feature’s Maxi Hughes take on Andrejs Podusovs.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are still available either on the door or from
