The Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao showdown will dominate world boxing this weekend.

But in a corner of South Yorkshire, fight fans will have a slightly different agenda on Saturday.

They will be rooting on local talent at Doncaster, when Woodlands bantamweight Jason Cunningham competes for the Commonwealth title against Tanzanian southpaw Nasibu Ramadhani.

Also on the bill is Barnsley’s Andy Townend - described by manager Stefy Bull as “hardest hitting superfeather in country” - for the English title against Fehmi Fehintola.

Local fight fans won’t be deprived of the global event though.

The televised ring walk for Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao is set to take place from around 4am on Sunday (BST.)

The world title fight takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and will be broadcast on Sky Sports Box Office for UK viewers.

The event costs £19.95 to purchase on Box Office, (additional £2 booking fee for those who book on the day.)
