Tom Dallas and Tom Little will clash in an all-English quarter-final at the Betfair International Heavyweights at the York Hall, Bethnal Green on June 20, live on Sky Sports HD1.
Three-time world super middleweight champion Carl Froch performed the draw at Sky Sports studios as the eight contenders for Wednesday nights action met for the first time at the promo shoot.
The Cobra picked Brentwood-based Pole Albert Sosnowski out of the hat first and pitted the former World title challenger against American Maurice Harris.
There’s a potential all-USA semi-final number one as Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson meets rookie Moroccan knockout specialist Noureddine Meddoune in quarter-final two.
Quarter-final three sees New Yorker Tor Hamer against Brazil’s Marcelo Luiz Nascimento with the winner facing the victor in the all-England clash in quarter-final four, a clash that Dallas is relishing.
“There will definitely be an Englishman in the semis and I am confident it will be me,” said Dallas.
“It’s a shame in a way that it’s England v England but it adds a lot of spice to what is already a big night.”
