YORK HALL promoter Miranda Carter launches a new boxing season at the Bethnal Green venue on Sunday, and parades a line-up of prospects from Canning Town's TKO Gym.
Carter relishes a challenge, and her Left Jab Promotions group has staged several successful shows at the traditional home of British boxing.
As usual, she relies on local talent to attract the fans and Ultrachem TKO Gym boss Johnny Eames and his fellow trainer Jason Rowland are preparing their men for action on a promising bill lined up by matchmaker Roy Hilder.
Eames looks to his popular light middleweight Pat McAleese (pictured right) to please his supporting squad and continue his seven-fight unbeaten run when he appears on the show against Welsh opponent Geraint Honey.

"Pat has developed into a real York Hall favourite and with a few more good wins, we'll be looking to get him into the title picture," says Eames.
Tony Conquest, who won a London ABA cruiserweight title with Dagenham BC, launches a paid career on Sunday afternoon and could bring pro honours his way - according to former WBO world light welter champion Rowland.

Rowland has been training Conquest at the TKO Gym and has been impressed with the prospect: "Tony has been working well in the gym and I think he will make his mark on the professional scene," says the trainer who took top amateur and pro honours in his own career.
Conquest, who battled to become the nationally ranked number three in the amateurs, will be tested by 40-fight Aberystwyth campaigner Jamie Ambler on the bil.
He will be joined by stablemates Liam Shinkwin and John Wayne Hibbert, also trained by Jason Rowland and managed by Richard Clarke.
Local light-heavyweight Bill Slate is also booked for his first pro encounter against Welsh
opponent Adam Wilcox.
Super-middle-weight Matt Jack, light-middleweight Ryan Toms, cruiserweight Leon Williams, lightweight Tony Owen and super-flyweight Juliette Winter are also set for action on the show starting at 3pm.
