Tottenham's Mark Prince will be up against it in Hamburg this evening when he challenges the dominant German-based Pole Dariusz Michalczewski for the World Boxing Organisation light-heavyweight title. Prince, a heavy hitter, is unbeaten in 18 fights but is likely to come up short against Michalczewski, who should extend his 37-fight winning run by the halfway stage in their scheduled 12-rounder.

Wayne McCullough, the former world champion, has split from his long- time coach Thel Torrance six weeks before his scheduled fight with Prince Naseem Hamed, the World Boxing Organisation featherweight title holder. Kenny Croom, who has been on his coaching team, will take over as his trainer.
