Veteran boxer Kevin Hylton will face promising youngster Kemahl Russell in the third quarterfinal of the Wray & Nephew Middleweight Contender 2015 series tonight.

The fight will take place at the Chinese Benevolent Association's auditorium on Old Hope Road.

The bout is set to start at 9:30.

Before the main fight, there will be two amateur contests.

Hylton, is expected to be a difficult opponent to beat, as he is defensive minded and tries the patience of his opponents.

He has a record of six wins and four loses.

Russell will have to fight smart to win, as Hylton will be pulling out all the stops to win tonight's fight.

Russell has had only four fights, winning three of them inside the distance, but his maturity inside the ring is obvious.

He is a disciplined fighter and this will serve him well tonight.
