Trainer Graham Everett says he expects more of the same when the boxing Walsh brothers from Cromer climb into the ring again. The three brothers are in action on the undercard of the massive Enzo Maccarinelli v David Haye cruiserweight unification fight at the 02 Arena on Saturday.

“It's a fantastic bill they are on, and the way they have been performing in the gym don't be surprised if there's some more of the same as their pro debuts,” said Everett.

The brothers have all been matched up, with super-flyweight Michael facing his first overseas opponent in the unbeaten Khvicha Papiashpili from Georgia.

Everett has pitted the brothers against British lightweight champion Jon Thaxton and Thetford's Rocky Dean in sparring at the Kickstop Gym.

Liam takes on the very experienced Steve Gethin, while Ryan, who sent shock waves through the bantamweight division with his devastating debut performance, has to concede weight and height to Robin Deakin from Crawley.
