Boxing: Close contests on cards.
10pm, Sky Sports 1
RICKY HATTON is the biggest name in action this weekend, but York Hall stages two fascinating contests this evening which are far more competitive betting events than the Hitman's clash with Luis Collazo tomorrow.
First close pals and training partners Lee Meager and Dave Stewart do battle for the vacant British lightweight title and then Lenny Daws takes on Nigel Wright for the right to wear the British light-welterweight belt.
Seldom has a bill featured two such close fights as far as the odds are concerned, and it is not surprising that the layers make them both virtual pickem affairs.
Where they might differ is in terms of duration. Stewart and
Meager have only 11 stoppages between them in 37 pro bouts and are fully expected to go the whole 12 rounds.
Bet365 agree with this and go your choice over or under 11.5 rounds, but the 5-6 that it goes all the way is still worth taking.
It's effectively evens that the Daws-Wright fight doesn't go to a decision and that's too big. Both have the power to make a stop page the value.
Stewart v Meager over 11.5

Powerful Lenny Daws has won six of his 13 fights inside the distance
