Anthony Crolla and many price per head companies are confident that on Saturday night he will be able to adapt to a late change of opponent when he faces Stephen Foster Jr.
Pay per head services know that Crolla was set to take on current champion Martin Gethin for the British lightweight title, but he had no choice but to pull out due to an ear problem.
Promoter Eddie Hearn was left looking around for a replacement, but price per head sportsbooks found out that veteran Foster was already fit for a fight in December and was delighted to take the bout on short notice.
Crolla expects fans in Manchester to really enjoy the local derby, and price per head sportsbooks are sure that they’ll be in for quite a show.
“I’ve known Steve for a long time, and I’ve got a lot of respect for him,” he said. “It’s a very dangerous fight for me.
“More people are interested now with the local rivalry and the fans are in for a real treat on Saturday night.
“We’ve only had a week’s notice but I believe we’re both good enough to adapt to that. Steve’s from just up the road and everyone loves a local derby, whatever the sport.”
Foster Jr held and fought for several titles at lower weights, most notably the European super-bantamweight strap, but price per head sportsbooks saw that 12 months ago he was defeated by then-British champion Gary Buckland in Saturday’s venue.
“I’m in decent shape, I’ve been labouring and doing my circuits, getting in the gym whenever I can,” said Foster, who will be fighting at lightweight for the first time.
