Melton heavyweight boxer Paul Butlin is back in action tomorrow (Friday) for the 40th bout of his professional career.

The 39-year-old heads to Dublin to take on unbeaten opponent Sean Turner who has registered five knockouts in his seven wins.

Butlin took the bout against the 24-year-old Irishman, which tops the bill at the Roadstone Club, at just two weeks’ notice.

It will be his first contest since July following a points defeat in an eight-round clash with Franz Rill in Germany.
