CHAMPIONS will be crowned and rivals collide as PowerBox Promotions brings its fourth fight night to the Atik in Windsor this Sunday.

There has been no love lost between heavyweight rivals Dan Gaut and Rees Cornell who clash in a three-round title eliminator.

Gaut, 30, said: “Training has been going really well. I’ve been training two or three times a day ready for this and treatingis it very seriously.

“Rees has not got under my skin. He has put fire in my belly and made me train harder. On cold morning I have been out running and cold evenings hitting a bag. It’s just made it even easier to train.

“I’ve been training for Mike Tyson and I’m going to be getting a bum, easy.

“Knowing I’m the favourite does not affect me at all. I’m going in to win, whether I knock him out, beat him up for three rounds it doesn’t matter. I go there to win.

“I’ve been training for 10 rounds and we’re doing three so he is in trouble. It’s not going to last long, seven seconds.

“It will take me longer to reach him in the ring than it will to knock him out.”

Cornell, 27, said: “Training has been going really great. I’ve been training really hard, lost a lot of weight, feeling fresh and ready. I feel a knockout coming on.

“I work on a (building) site so I’m used to chasing slobs around, it’s easy and no problems at all to be fair.

“Favourites are there to be beaten, let’s be serious. On the actual poll itself, some people are going to be very, very upset.

“I’m going to win, whether it’s a knockout or on points, he’s going to get hurt.”
