Danny Mac aims for Lonsdale via Prizefighter

The former European light heavyweight champion is ready to bounce back from defeats to Eleider Alvarez, Tony Bellew and Eduard Gutknecht with success in Betfair Prizefighter and would be looking to fight Jon-Lewis Dickinson for the British cruiserweight title immediately, if he claims the £32,000 winner’s cheque this weekend.

“Betfair Prizefighter is renowned for putting people in the spotlight and giving them chances,” he said. “I am taking a step on weight and why not? I think it is a great chance to get success in a different division and maybe push forward and get a British title.

“I would fit into the cruiserweight division near the top, that is simple. If and when I win this Prizefighter, I want a British title shot straight away. Jon Lewis Dickinson won Prizefighter and then went on to get a chance at the British title so let’s see two champions of Prizefighter take a chance and see who comes out on top.

“If good chances come along then I will certainly stay at cruiserweight, there will be no problem for me. I will see how I do in the competition. I think I have a good chance of winning it. I don’t really know a lot about the other guys. I have watched them on YouTube but we will have to see what happens, it is three-round fights so anything can happen.”

McIntosh is joined in the tournament by Neil Dawson, Shane McPhilbin, Wadi Camacho, Hari Miles and unbeaten duo Conall Carmichael and Nathan Owens. Tony Conquest has been forced to withdraw through injury and has been replaced by Martyn Grainger (8-6).

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
