Chris Eubank Jr v Renold Quinlan (10.45pm)

David Price v Christian Hammer

On another night in another town, this bout has the clout to take a headline slot.

Christian Hammer (20-4) produced a massive upset in October when he outpointed Erkan Teper to take the WBO European heavyweight title which he will put on the line in London.

The Romanian-born 29-year-old, who retired on his stool two years ago against Tyson Fury is challenged by Liverpool’s David Price, a man with big aspirations.

His biggest fight to date interestingly came against Teper, who knocked him out in the second round for the European title in 2015.

However, the fight was ruled a no-contest after Teper failed a drugs test, although the EBU have left the result on the books.

Price has been in touch with Joseph Parker about a possible world title fight in April.

If he comes through this test, he will be favourite to walk into that ring on April 8.

David Price 7/15, Christian Hammer 11/5

Kid Galahad v Joseph Agbeko preview

Joseph Agbeko (31-5) – or King Kong as he is often known – has been around the block.

The 36-year-old has 23 career knockouts and never been on the receiving end of one.

The super-bantamweight fighter has plenty of pedigree too. He held the IBF bantamweight title for almost three years in total and came within a decision of the WBA and WBO super-bantamweight honours.

He faces a man 10 years his junior in Kid Galahad (real name – Abdul-Bari Awad).

The Qatari-born fighter moved to England when he was three and has impressed on the ring so far, unbeaten in his 21 fights.

But Agbeko is a canny operator and will be the first real challenge in the Brit’s fledgling career.

Kid Galahad 1/12, Joseph Agbeko 9/1

Adam Etches v John Ryder preview

Adam Etches (20-1) had an unbeaten professional record until he was beaten by Siarhei Khamitski in Sheffield in 2015.

It saw him miss out on the IBF International middleweight title, but now he is stepping up to fight for the same honours at super-middleweight.

‘The Bomber’ is something of a knockout machine but will face one of his sternest tests in a bout with John Ryder.

‘The Gorilla’ (23-3) was beaten by Jack Arnfield last time out but has only once been stopped – and that was by Nick Blackwell for the British title.

John Ryder 8/11, Adam Etches 6/4
