Sykes set to sell out allocation

DEWSBURY boxing champion Gary Sykes is on the verge of selling out his allocation of tickets for the British super featherweight showdown with Gary Buckland on September 24.

Sykes has sold all 200 of his £35 tickets and has just a few at £55 left.

The Sykes camp is hastily trying to get hold of additional tickets but the demand for the fight – which could see the Dewsbury Moor man win his Lonsdale belt outright – has reached an unpresidented level.

The remaining £55 tickets are available from Mark Waters (07890 071883). The Fox & Hounds pub in Hanging Heaton is running coaches – to book call Ben on 01924 463128.
