Sam Sheedy will face former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce at Doncaster Racecourse on June 20, in an eight-rounder.

Pryce, 33, is a steely veteran...last year he went ten rounds with Frankie Gavin and 12 with Sergey Rabchenko.

But Sheedy’s trainer Glyn Rhodes believes light middleweight Sheedy, 26, who is undefeated after 13 fights, can chalk up his most impressive win so far.

Sheffield Boxing Centre boss Rhodes said: “Bradley is a good kid, when he loses it’s normally to very good opponents like Frankie Gavin and Billy Joe Saunders.

“Maybe he is not what he was, but he is a very good boxer.

“He is a counter puncher, as Sam is, so we could be in for an interesting chess match. There is no title is up for grabs, but you can great matches when there is no strap on the line.

“The fight may well be won by whoever is willing to commit themselves and come out of the chess match.”

Meanwhile Amir Khan has continued to shrug off talk of a meeting with Sheffield’s Kell Brook.

“Brook is not one I will be looking at” he said. “He doesn’t deserve it - unless he beats Shawn Porter (awaiting purse bids.) “If he had the IBF title, then maybe. He doesn’t bring anything to the table without that. I think it is wrong that he has made a big name for himself in the UK fighting nobodies and trying to set up a big fight with me because he knows it will make him the biggest money of his career. He knows if he fights me, he makes a lot of money, and he doesn’t deserve it” he said.
