Taylor, Shinkwin, and Owen Round Out Prizefighter Field


Ryan Taylor, Liam Shinkwin and Tony Owen are the final three names in the Betfair Prizefighter Light Welterweights III live on Sky Sports from the York Hall, Bethnal Green on July 6.


The sold-out night will also feature Kevin Mitchell’s return to action in a ten-rounder as the lightweight aims to get back on the World title trail after falling to WBO king Ricky Burns in a thrilling challenge in Glasgow last September.


Old friends Taylor (7-1-1) and Shinkwin (6-0-1) clashed for the Southern Area lightweight title at Wembley Arena in March, with the latter taking a points decision and his former sparring partner’s ‘0’. Taylor will be desperate to gain revenge if the draw pits the pair together.


Carshalton’s Owen (14-1) is no stranger to York Hall and the southpaw will be looking to launch himself onto the big stage and into title contention with success in east London.


The final trio join Chris Evangelou (9-2), Danny Connor (8-5-1), Southampton’s Matty Tew (12-1) and unbeaten pair Eren Arif (3-0) and Charlie Rice (6-0) in battling for the title and the £32,000 winner’s cheque.
