Zoo Magazine start search for two girls to appear live on Sky Sports

Prizefighter returns to Sky Sports with a bang as the Heavyweights IV take over York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday 9 October – and two lucky ladies could be in the spotlight too as ring card girls!

Zoo Magazine have launched a search to find two lucky girls to appear at that show and for the rest of the third series of Prizefighter – that's six shows in total where they will be centre-stage at Sky Sports' most exciting Boxing show.

So, glamorous girls over 18 years-old who want to apply should email ringgirls@zootoday.com with your name, age, vitals and of course pictures and you could be chosen by a panel of Prizefighter representatives and the Zoo Editor!

Full details on how to apply for the competition can be found at zootoday.com/ringgirls or page 80 of this week's issue of Zoo.

Prizefighter Heavyweights IV is the 14th edition of Barry Hearn's eight-man, one night tournaments, responsible for breathing new life into British Boxing. The last time the Heavyweights fought in the format in April 2009, Audley Harrison resurrected his career by lifting the trophy, and his win sparked a run of fights that has seen the 2000 Olympic Gold medallist earn a World Heavyweight title shot against David Haye at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester on November 13.

The tournament returns with another strong field with old rivals Matt Skelton and Michael Sprott drawn in the same half for a potential semi-final meeting, giving Sprott the chance to avenge two defeats against the former English, British European and Commonwealth champion Skelton – with Sprott returning to the ring for the first time since his last gasp knockout defeat to Audley Harrison in their European title bout in April.

Sprott faces Danny Hughes in the third quarter-final of the night, the Sunderland fighter who fought in the last Heavyweights outing, knocking out Neil Perkins in the quarter-finals before losing to Harrison in the semis. Skelton must get past Ali Adams in order to reach the semi-final with the London-based Adams unbeaten in his last nine fights with eight wins.

In the opening bout of the night, Irishman Kevin McBride – famous for being the last man to beat Mike Tyson – take on Manchester's Michael Holden, the former British champion who has scores to settle with both Sprott and Skelton after losing to the pair earlier in his career.

The winner of that fight will face the winner of the second fight of the night as Carl Baker, the man who defeated Danny Williams in Prizefighter Heavyweights III faces the Wildcard fighter – a spot that will be filled soon, with a series of big names in line to take it.

PRIZEFIGHTER HEAVYWEIGHTS IV DRAW
Michael Holden v Kevin McBride
Wildcard v Carl Baker
Michael Sprott v Danny Hughes
Matt Skelton v Ali Adams
