There will be a knockout special guest for the kickboxing show in Stevenage this Saturday.

Matt Skelton, the Commonwealth heavyweight boxing champion who is defending his title against Audley Harrison in December, is also going to be at the Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre.

Fighters from the local TS Kickboxing club will be pitting their skills against opponents from other clubs.

Sukhy Shoria takes on Wes Fagan a dangerous fighter from County Durham in what promises to be an excellent seven-round pro contest.

Andy Pollard faces Gordon Childs from Dorchester over five rounds for the Southern Area title. This is not to be missed as both have exciting styles.

Stacey Parker also takes on a County Durham opponent while Vikki Ranson's opponent is from Rochester - both these ladies are fighting over three rounds.

Dean Allen will be taking on a Surrey fighter again over three rounds.

And club favourite and old warrior Gad Mullins meets an opponent from Bedford.

Doors open at 4pm, with fights from 5pm onwards. Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from the fighters. Or you can call 07940 715717 for tickets and more information. There is also a ticket outlet which is Tiger Style in Bucklersbury, Hitchin.
