    Anthony Fowler

    Anthony Fowler will make his professional debut on Saturday night. The Liverpudlian was captain of Team GB's Rio 2016 boxers and of course won Commonwealth Games gold in 2014.

    He will fight at light-middleweight, though many in the sport expected him to begin a division higher - Fowler even sparred former super-middleweight Carl Froch when the Cobra fought George Groves in 2014.

    "Ive lost 10lbs," says Fowler. But I feel strong and as ready as I can be. At this weight I am going to be tall, long and powerful."

    Fowler will be on the undercard of Kell Brook v Errol Spence, live on BBC Radio 5 live. BBC Sport will have a live text commentary page on this site from 21:00 BST on Saturday.

  3. Wagner targets 'fairy-tale promotion'

    Huddersfield Town v Reading (Monday, 15:00 BST)

    Huddersfield Town were in the fourth tier of English football as recently as 2004, but a win on Monday against Reading will take them into the top-flight for the first time since 1972.

    Terriers boss David Wagner said: "I don't think about the Premier League as we have a job to do. We know how strong Reading are, but we focus on ourselves. To come back after being 1-0 down against Sheffield Wednesday, the players will be able to perform and show their best performance of the season.

    "I'm proud to be part of this group and it is an honour to lead them out at Wembley. We are in the final and everybody likes to win, that is our ambition and why we are there.

    "After Leicester, it is the second fairy-tale in English football. Huddersfield are in the play-off, the biggest game in the world, the richest game in football and we are there to be winning."

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport boxing reporter at Bramall Lane

    George Groves has been speaking to BBC Sport about Saturday's world title fight against Fedor Chudinov.

    The London fighter will bid to become a world champion at the fourth time of asking when he bids for the WBA Super-middleweight title but he admits the tragic events in Manchester this week have left him a little confused as to how to behave in the build up.

    Bramall lane

    A first look at Bramall Lane as fighters go through some head to heads. George Groves and Fedor Chudinov are asked to pose and there's no shenanigans.

    I'm told there has not been boxing here since 1984 and only 3,000 showed on that night. A whopping 27,000 are expected on Saturday.

    There will be live radio and text commentary on this website on Saturday.

  13. Exiles considered 'doing a Terry'

    Rugby Union

    London Irish

    London Irish boss Nick Kennedy admitted his side considered taking a leaf out of Chelsea's book before securing promotion to the Premiership with an 84-88 aggregate play-off win over Yorkshire Carnegie.

    "We've rotated the squad all year and all the players fully deserve to be up there celebrating," he told BBC Sport.

    "It's just a shame we couldn't get them all kitted out. We thought about 'doing a John Terry' and putting them out there, but it was voted against."

    The Exiles won the second leg 55-48 at the Madejski Stadium on Wednesday evening.

    As we said at 15:52 BST, John Terry got dressed into his full kit to celebrate Chelsea winning a Champions League final, despite it being a game he did not feature in.

  14. Face off

    Kell Brook v Errol Spence news conference

    Face off

    The scrum to get a shot of the stage was full on to say the least. Champion Kell Brook and challenger Errol Spence Jr at the heart of the action.

    Spence seems supremely confident and given the great Sugar Ray Leanord has called him "the real deal", I guess we have to listen respectfully.

    Brook has lost a lot of weight since campaigning at middleweight last time out. He's had to burn roughly 500 more calories a day than he's consumed for several weeks in order to make weight.

    It looks fascinating on paper. A champion against a hyped American with a deep skill set. Spence is the favourite with bookmakers remember.

    Remember, there will be a live text commentary page on this website from 21:00 BST on Saturday along with BBC Radio 5 live commentary.

  15. 'Lots of offers on the table'


    Wayne Rooney

    A bit more from Wayne Rooney now.

    The 31-year-old has played a bit-part role for United this season, coming on as a last-minute substitute in the Europa League final triumph over Ajax.

    "There are lots of offers on the table, both in England and abroad," he said.

    But United's all-time leading scorer with 253 goals said he would only move to former club Everton if he stayed in the Premier League.

  20. Ronaldo faces possible tax fraud charges



    Cristiano Ronaldo is facing possible charges of tax fraud in Spain.

    Prosecutors have passed a file to the country's tax office, which will decide whether to press charges against the Portuguese Real Madrid striker.

    Reports in Spain say Ronaldo, 32, is suspected of defrauding 15m euros(£13m) between 2011 and 2014.

    In December, leaked documents suggested Ronaldo had avoided tax on income from image rights allegedly held in offshore accounts. He denied the claims.

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was also implicated in those claims - published after an international consortium of journalists obtained a trove of about 18 million documents. He also denied the claims.
