Boxer Steven Pearce had a pound’s weight advantage ahead of his English welterweight title clash with champion Adam Little of Kirkham at Blackpool’s Hilton Hotel tonight.

Little tipped the scales at the Promenade venue at 10st 4lb , with Midlands challenger Pearce on 10st 5lb.

This title clash is the centrepiece of a busy Blackpool boxing evening which proves Saturday night is all right for fighting.

Little shares the Hilton bill with heavyweight debutant Bill Hodgson, also of Kirkham.

There’s a promotion at the Winter Gardens too, where St Annes’ Matty Askin takes on Jiri Svacina of the Czech Republic, while Blackpool middleweight RP Davies faces Lewis van Poetch.
