Sunderland ABC have three boxers competing for English titles at the Rainton Meadows Arena tomorrow.

Elite England boxer and British champion Kieran Macdonald is competing for the title against Londoner Nathan Brown (Hooks ABC) at 49kg.

Travis Waters competes in a title eliminator at 69kg welterweight against an as yet unnamed opponent.

Matty Stewart also has a title eliminator in the 75kg middleweight class.

The newly-introduced titles should guarantee an exciting evening of boxing.

The title, once won, will then have to be defended nationwide, giving senior boxers chances of putting themselves forward for national recognition.

Doors open at noon, with boxing expected to last from 1pm-10,30pm.
