Some up-and-coming UK talent will take to the ring in Coventry

Boxxer holds its latest event on Saturday - Breakthrough - with several bright British stars handed the opportunity to display their skills.

A new generation of British boxing stars will step into the ring at the Coventry Skydome Arena with plenty of Midlands talent also on show.

Adam Azim, trained by Shane McGuigan, is already attracting lots of hype and he'll get another chance to make a statement, while Tokyo 2020 Olympic bronze medallist Karriss Artingstall makes her professional debut.

Birmingham's Sam Eggington is likely to draw the majority of the crowd as he takes on Przemyslaw Zysk for the IBO super-welterweight belt.

Eggington turned professional in 2012 and he won his first three fights via decision, beating Leon Findlay, Charlie Thompson and Andrew Hardy.

His first taste of defeat came in 2013 at the hands of Dale Evans but he responded well to win six in a row.

The Birmingham-born fighter won the WBC International Silver welterweight title in his 16th fight, and he added the vacant Commonwealth welterweight belt to his collection in his next bout.

The Savage earned a notable win over Paulie Malignaggi in 2017, retaining his WBC International welterweight title in the process, and has also overcome former world champion Carlos Molina.

He heads to the ring on Saturday on a three-fight win streak and with an overall record of 31-7, including 18 victories via knockout.
