TKO Gym duo Ashley Theophane and Pat McAleese will be looking for a title double on the big Hennessy Sports summer show at Wembley Arena on Saturday.

Light-middleweight McAleese challenges Southern Area champion Ryan Toms for his title, while fight-anywhere Theophane defends his British light-welterweight belt against Welsh veteran Jason Cook.

The championship clashes support the eagerly-awaited heavyweight meeting which sees Dereck Chisora take on Tyson Fury, with British and Commonwealth titles at stake.

Both boxers from the Canning Town gym are tipping title success.

Fans’ favourite McAleese insists: “It’s going to be a tough test, Ryan’s an awkward southpaw, but I know I’ve got the tools to win.”

Ever-confident Theophane boasts that he will prove the best opponent former European champion Cook has faced, and predicts he will keep his title at the arena where he took the British belt from Lenny Daws in February.
