Full house expected for Magna boxing show

THIS week's big boxing bill at Rotherham's Magna Centre is heading towards a sell-out.

Most of the tickets 1,500 tickets have been snapped up for Friday's show, which is topped by Terri Harper's bout against South Africa’s Nozipho Bell for the vacant IBO super-featherweight crown.

The night, organised by Stefy Bull Promotions, also includes former super-bantamweight world title challenger Gavin McDonnell and Bramley's Lee Appleyard.

Ex-British and European champion Ryan Rhodes, who is helping promote the show, said: "It's an amazing card, we trying to drum up as much support as we can.

"There are no more VIP tickets and speaking to all the fighters, there are less than 30 standard tickets available so we are heading for a complete sell-out.

"It should be a great night."

A victory for Denaby fighter Harper (22) would make her Britain's youngest female world champion while Appleyard, who faces an, as yet, unconfirmed opponennt, is eyeing a crack at Commonwealth super-lightweight champion Philip Bowes in the autumn.
