Liam Cameron’s team believe their man will have the beating of British title eliminator rival Tobias Webb tomorrow -but they are taking nothing for granted.

The Sheffield team had a ‘spy’ at Webb’s last fight and hope they have left nothing out in his preparation for the super middleweight encounter at Hillsborough Leisure Centre.

Trainer Chris Smedley says they have done their homework on Webb, 26, from Swansea. “We had a spy watching Tobias in Blackburn (beat Elvis Dube over six rounds; November 22) and he said he didn’t look like a puncher but was sharp. “Liam doesn’t have to worry about what Tobias is fetching, he only has to be concerned with what he himself can bring.” Having said that, the 10 rounder will be no easy ride, says Smedley.

“Tobias has a won 15 lost 2 drawn one record. He is a Welsh champion has beaten (ex world champion) Robin Reid and got to the final of Prizefighter (beaten by Rocky Fielding; 2011.) We certainly respect him as an opponent. He’s not coming here to let Liam win. Lewis Taylor and Liam have been sparring and it’s been brilliant. Lewis is similar in some respects to Tobias and he and Liam helped each other.”

Cameron, 24, has fought twice this year, beating Philip Kotey and Wayne Reed. Unbeaten Taylor, from Dronfield, faces Jonson McClumpha in an English middleweight eliminator. Taylor is determined to get back on to the winning trail after drawing with Adam Jones in September.
