Sprott joins Hackney’s Larry Olubamiwo, Milton Keynes’ Matt Legg and Hertfordshire’s Tom Little in Team UK, who face up to former three-weight World Champion James Toney in Team USA.

Toney, who is London early to appear on Ringside this evening, is joined in the US quartet by Californian Damian Wills, former World Cruiserweight challenger Brian Minto and Florida’s Jason Gavern.

Olympic Gold medal hero Anthony Joshua MBE faces Croatian Hrvoje Kisicek in his third pro fight while Cruiserweight prospect Ben Ileyemi meets Moses Matovu in his second pro outing.
