Music: Hobbitron Enterprises INC/Chappell Music LTD

South Shields boxer Anthony "Babyface" Nelson is topping the bill at this year's 'Summer Rumble' in Sunderland.

The 27-year-old will be fighting Middlesbrough's Mohammed Waqas for the Northern Area Super Flyweight Title in Sunderland. Nelson is one of several North East boxers going head-to-head in front of the Stadium of Light crowd.

Speaking ahead of the bout, Nelson said:

"This is the fight we've been trying to get for a long time. It just so happens we've managed to get it and it's been a Northern Area title fight.

"It would mean everything to me to win the title.

"I'm really looking forward to boxing there again, but this time I'm going to be top of the bill as well which makes it all the more special."
