The show that promised to be arguably the biggest in Barnsley boxing history has not lost any of its sparkle despite alterations to the card.

That is the view of promoter Stefy Bull who has had to find new opponents for two of his Barnsley fighters on the Doncaster Dome March 3 show. Brampton's Josh Wale, 28, who will headline, now takes on Hayes' Ramesh Ahmadi after Marc Leach withdrew from a clash for the vacant English bantamweight title.

And Shafton's Andy Townend's, 27, position as mandatory for the Commonwealth super-featherweight belt has meant he would not be risked in a title clash and will instead face a scaled down fight with an opponent to be announced.

Robbie Barrett, 25, remains on the bill as the Darfield southpaw aims to keep hold of his English lightweight belt against Grimsby's Kevin Hooper.

The show looks on course to be a complete 1,500 sellout with tickets now only available from the fighter's allocations.

Speaking at a packed-out press conference at the Westville WMC in West Melton, Bull said: "I have not got one ticket left now. All the fighters want more tickets but there are none left.

"It will only be my second sellout promoting at the Doncaster Dome but it's the biggest one I've ever promoted.

"It is a show full of proper fights and with a bit of luck Barnsley fighters will win two English title fights on one night. That's never been done before.

"I had wanted it to be three but Andy is in a position for the Commonwealth title now and has outgrown domestic level."

Bull, who also co-trains Wale with Josh's dad Mick, believes the opportunity for him to have home advantage will help him overcome the nearly man tag that has dogged him in the past – following failed challenges for the British and Commonwealth belts.

Bull added: "Josh has been boxing for ten years, up and down the country, but has never had a chance to do this. Be the main event in the home corner for a major title fight. He has been the man with no luck."
