Like father, like son - Lee Haskins and son Anton share bill in Bristol

Lee Haskins (35-4) takes on Sergio Gonzalez (10-18-5) at the Whitchurch Leisure Centre in Bristol tonight to break a 22-month-long ring absence, but foremost to share the bill with his talented son Anton.

The father and son will achieve a rare sporting feat as they both fight professionally on the same card.

The pair have been training together and former IBF world champion Lee, who headlines the Sanigar Events promotion, titled 'The Bristol Boys', said: "I can't say how much it means to me to share this with my son, it's incredible and a lifelong dream for me."

'Playboy' Haskins, now aged 36, has had a glittering career that involved winning English, Commonwealth, British, European, and world titles.

His 40th professional opponent is 31-year-old Nicaraguan 'Torito', who resides in Barcelona, Spain.

He may be recognisable to fight fans, as Archie Sharp stopped him in just two rounds in their eight-round super-fatherweight contest at Wembley Arena in April, on the undercard of Daniel Dubois' ding dong with Richard Lartey.

Anton, operating at super-lightweight, will tackle 179-fight veteran Ibrar Riyaz (6-168-4) over four rounds in his pro bow.

On the undercard is welterweight Dan Sarkozi (10-2); unbeaten light-heavyweight Pawel August (9-0); lightweight talent Tyler Davies (6-0); and four other debutants.
