DAVE COLDWELL reckons he will stage a guaranteed “tear-up” at the Magna Centre in February.

Some fighters don’t always live up to their billing, but the Rotherham promoter believes a re-match between Nav Mansouri and Terry Carruthers will be a barn stormer.

Birmingham based Carruthers deprived Mansouri of his unbeaten record during a televised three round Prizefighter light-middleweight tournament in November.

And now the Kimberworth based 26-year-old is bursting for revenge.

“Their first fight was an exciting one and not everybody agreed in the judges giving it to Terry” he said.

“Terry was like a man-demented that night - a real star of the show. He let fly a millions shots but I still thought that Nav nicked it with the cleaner punches. The loss of his perfect record really hurt Nav.

“He caught Terry a few times and hurt him and I think this will now be a proper battle over eight rounds.

“Actually, I am convinced he will stop Terry. Nav is a great body-puncher and over the longer distance, he should take Terry out.

“But Terry is as game as they come. He will fight anybody. This is a guaranteed tear up, they are both up for a war.”

The card includes Curtis Woodhouse, who may make a voluntary defence of his English title.

Coldwell is a big fan of Adam Etches, who boxed last night in Sheffield. The promoter is not associated with the Ingle middleweight, but takes his hat off to his power. “He is one tough cookie - boy, can he punch! Sometimes punchers can’t take a shot themselves but I he can and come back for more. He is a TV fighter.”
