We ask a panel of experts who their looking out for at the Olympic qualifier

Sunny Edwards
IBF flyweight titlist

The fighter I’m most looking forward to looking out for is big Frazer Clarke – had to wait a long time to get to this point and I can’t see him letting it slip. The future of the heavyweight division in my eyes.

Kal Yafai
Former Olympian

The GB squad has so much talent from my brother Galal all the way up to big Frazer Clarke. It’s hard to pick one, Pat McCormack, Ben Whittaker and Peter McGrail are looking good so watch out for them.

Sam Maxwell
Super-lightweight contender

Peter McGrail. He reminds me of a little Lomachenko, his angles, his footwork. I think he’s really good but the whole squad is; Pat McCormack, Galal Yafai, Frazer Clarke. Them four alone are amazing. It’s a good team.

Lisa Whiteside
Commonwealth Games gold medallist

Karriss Artingstall in the females and Pat McCormack in the men’s. Both super talented.

Andy Clarke
Commentator

I’ll go for Ukrainian Middleweight Oleksandr Khyzhniak. It’s tough to wish him too much luck because he’s fighting GB’s Lewis Richardson but Khyzhniak is special. Britain’s own Peter McGrail, Pat McCormack and Lauren Price are at a very high level too though and have the medals to prove it.
