As he looked forward to the December contest, Cardiff City defender Lee Peltier told us about his love for both football and boxing.

The full-back, who is fresh from making his 100th competitive appearance for the Bluebirds, explained that he grew up surrounded by both sports.

“In Liverpool, it’s either football or boxing as the two main sports. When I can, I get to most fights. 

"I love going down to the boxing and I do a bit in the gym when I can," he added. "A good mate, Tony Bellew is from my area. I grew up around them all and it’s good to see him doing so well too."

Pelts went on to let us know some of the boxers that he's enjoyed watching the most over the years.

“There are so many good boxers in Liverpool at the minute," he continued. "There’s a lot of talent there. I like watching Cotto, Canelo, obviously Mayweather. I like watching them all to be fair - but over the years I’d probably say that Miguel Cotto has been my favourite boxer."
