Former world champion Ricky Burns and exciting prospect Martin J Ward sharpened their skills in a sparring session as they prepare for crucial fights next month.
The Scotsman features on a packed undercard for Luke Campbell's Hull clash with local rival Tommy Coyle, live on Sky Sports, while super-featherweight Ward also returns to action on the same bill at Craven Park on August 1.
Burns begins the rebuilding process after a brave points defeat by Omar Figueroa Jr in May, while Ward will be hoping to rise further up the rankings after his April rematch win over Maxi Hughes.
