Coach Daron Wiseman has every confidence Joel McIntyre can deliver the goods in the next instalment of Ultimate Boxxer at London's 02 on Friday night.

The Leigh Park lightweight heads into the eight-man event as one of the favourites to scoop the £50,000 prize money on offer.

McIntyre, with a professional record of 17-2-0, is the most experienced fighter involved and will face Darrell Church in his quarter-final bout.

Should the 30-year-old come through that, he will need to win another two fights on the same evening to be crowned Ultimate Boxxer champion.

But the Leigh Park fighter's coach, Wiseman, has every belief in him.

He said: ‘Joel is one of the favourites to win it but there are some tough opponents in there.

‘There will be different challenges Joel will face on the night but we've been training hard over the past eight weeks and he is ready.

‘I don't think Joel will buckle on the night, Joel has just got to adapt.

‘We've put the training and hard work in, it's just about performing on the night. 

‘Myself and Joel have been living together for the best part of eight weeks in preparation for this, I'm confident he'll be able to do the business.

‘Hopefully, it'll be happy days on the night, another McIntyre knockout.’
