PROMOTER Stefy Bull is urging his fighters not to slip up at the Doncaster Dome tomorrow night - or else they will risk a chance of a title, writes Ashley Ball.

Former fighter Bull promised to try and make each of his bills better than the one before and should Andy Townend and Connor Nixon come through unscathed then they will get the chance to become champions on the next show.

Townend lines up against former English title challenger Dougie Curran over six threes whilst Nixon, from Hatfield, is in with tricky Kuwaiti Anwar Alfadli from the Sheffield Ingle stable.

Wins for lightweight Townend and super-flyweight Nixon will see them join Gavin McDonnell and Stuart Brookes from Mexborough in title fights in Bull’s title spectacular in April.

Friday’s show is headlined by Harworth’s Joe Elfidh against Tyrone Nurse from Huddersfield for the Central Area light-welterweight crown and there will be support acts from big-hitting Mickey Davies from Stainforth and Scawthorpe’s former amateur star Luke Crowcroft (pictured left).

“This show has got a bit of everything and will be a good night for the Doncaster public,” said Bull.

“The main event sees a big name in Tyrone Nurse against the tough and slick Joe Elfidh.

“Joe is coming off a loss against a two-time world champion in Scott Harrison and both of them have had plenty of notice so that’s a real good mix of styles and a 50/50 fight for people to see.”

The incentive for all Bull’s fighters is to keep winning and then eventually he will deliver them a title shot in Doncaster.

Trainer Dave Hulley wants to see the fighters pass the challenges set by the opponents he and Bull have picked.

“I’m confident that they’re all going to win. Some will be in hard fights but that’s what they need at this stage in their career,” he said.

“We could match them forever knocking people over but that’s not what we want them to do.”

Harworth’s Josh Morgan will debut on the bill at light-welterweight whilst Connor Nixon’s brother Warren is scheduled to debut at Doncaster Racecourse on March 8.
