BOXER Billy Joe Saunders is now just over two weeks away from making his senior professional debut.

It's been a remarkable rise for the 19-year-old fighter, whose family live at the Holwell traveller's site on the A414 near Hatfield.

In early December Saunders decided to sign for Frank Warren's Sports Network stable, along with fellow former amateurs Frankie Gavin and Beijing Olympics gold medallist James DeGale.

The trio, who are to fight under the banner of 'The Olympians,' will be making their debuts on Saturday, February 28 at the Birmingham National Indoor Arena.

The exciting talents will be on the undercard of the Commonwealth heavyweight title fight between Matt Skelton and Martin Rogan.

The WHT has teamed up with Frank Warren's Sports Network organisation to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to witness at first hand Billy Joe make his professional debut.

For your chance to win this knockout prize, simply answer this question:

Where did Billy Joe compete at the Olympics last year?

a) London

b) Beijing

c) Sydney

Closing date for entries is Monday, February 23. You can email your answer to sport@whtimes.co.uk or post to WHTimes, 31A Howardsgate, Welwyn Garden City, Herts, AL8 6AP, marked 'Boxing Competition.'
