Fighting Chance bring their third professional boxing show with Invincible to Ashington Leisure Centre on Saturday.

And tensions were clearly visible at the press conference as promoter Lewis Pendleton started proceedings with the usual introductions, but when he passed over to the fighters, Morpeth’s Danny Wall predicted a stoppage in the mid rounds against Darlington’s Steve Cooper in the headline fight.

Wall acknowledged that Cooper would have different ideas of how the fight will go, and his opponent’s trainer, Mike Hall, responded by promising that his man will be more than ready on the night and hinting that Wall was not showing Cooper the respect he deserved.

The show also has a host of the region’s top talent at different stages of their career including Tommy Ward, Lewis Ritson, Darren Surtees, Jay Hughes, Basi Razaq, Henry Thomas and Fighting Chance’s heavyweight prospect Jone TK Volau.
