I think Fielding will hammer Dilks personally.

As for PF, I think Derry will finally do it... he's ideally suited to this format IMO.

His chin will always be his achilles heel along with that nose, but he's only got to survive three rounds and there doesn't appear to be anyone in there with the power to bang him out in time.

Crolla is probably the best fighter in the competition but as I've said before, with that style he was an accident waiting to happen, and so it proved. He'd be better off not having a trainer or working with Vince Cleverly, for all the good that Gallagher has done him.

I have a good feeling about PF tonight.

I'm not a fan of the format but I think we'll see a few wars in there tonight, with Crolla coming out on top.

Fielding/Dilks is a decent fight as well.

I think it will be a Derry win barring cuts he just has the style and the draw to go on and win this. Crolla will have a rough time of it against his semi final opponent in comparison to Derry I think.

If Terry Flanagan gets through he'll give Derry a tough fight and he did break Derry's beak in sparring ,so they stopped using him

The worry for Flanagan is he did 10 rounds two weeks ago, so if he gets dragged into a war he may tire quickly.

I don't think the format combined with the fighters involved will suit Matthews. We are sure to see some intense fights and the chances are if Matthews makes the final he will meet Crolla or Sykes, both fresher than him and usually comfortable throwing in high volume.

I think Crolla is the stand-out favourite. Just looking at where he is in his career, his age, his reasons for being in the tournament. It all points to a Crolla win.

Can see Crolla winning it but only coz Derry cannot fight on due to a cut.

I'd say because he's got more upside and this one would be over a shorter distance.

am I right in saying that prizefighter isn't been shown live on sky sports and it will actually be delayed showing on sky?

Anyone know the schedule for the fights ? Will Fielding/Dilks start before the PF Final ?, to allow the finalist's some much needed rest to perhaps produce a better spectacle, as the Final's are usually scrappy affair's.
