Sykes title fight sells out

GARY Sykes will fight in front of a full house on Saturday night after tickets for his huge British super featherweight title showdown with West Yorkshire rival Carl Johanneson sold out.

Over 1,200 fans are expected to pack out Huddersfield Sports Centre and roar the Dewsbury star on in the second defence of his British title.

The fight is being screened live by Sky Sports and we would like to know if your pub or club are showing the fight for those supporters who have not been lucky enough to get hold of a ticket.

E-mail with details and we will list them on our website.

Buy this week’s paper for the big fight preview - including details of Tuesday’s public work-out at Dicky’s Gym in Batley - and see next week for the best coverage of the Sykes showdown.

We would also like Sykes fans to send us pictures from Saturday night - whether you are going to the fight, or watching it with friends at a local pub or club.
