Team Wiseman head coach Daron Wiseman says the teenagers could have done no more in their preparations.

He is just hoping it's enough for both prospects to go all the way to become national champions.

Wiseman said: ‘Hopes are really high for this weekend, it’s Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

‘It’s the quarters on the Friday, semis Saturday and Sunday are the finals.

‘Both are looking as strong as anything, both are tough, they’re in the shape of their life and hopefully they both bring back the youth belt.

‘Them two boys, they’ll both be boxing, hopefully they can bring back the belt. They’ve trained their absolute guts off for it, every night they’re in the gym.’

Martin and Conlon's follow club-mates Jack Carter, who made it to the National Junior Championship finals, along with both Bradley Jordan and Morgan Skyrme who ensured there was Team Wiseman representation at the National Schoolboy Championships in September.
