Canning Town’s Wadi Camacho (6-1) is joined by unbeaten Castleford fighter Nathan Owens (5-0-1), Nottinghamshire’s Shane McPhilbin (8-6) and Welshman Hari Miles (7-7) in the 30th edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one-night tournament with the final four fighters to be announced next week.

The tournament will precede Kell Brook’s IBF welterweight World title challenge to Devon Alexander, giving fans a great night of boxing on Sky Sports.

"The cruiserweight division is wide open right now and the winner is going to put themselves right in contention for major title honours," said promoter Eddie Hearn.

"We've had a huge number of requests to make the starting eight and will announce the full line up next week - fans and viewers can expect a sold out venue, cracking atmosphere and plenty of drama!"
