Sky Sports boxing pundits Glenn McCrory and Johnny Nelson will go toe-to-toe this Saturday night in Sky Bet's charity tipping challenge.

The former professionals will bid to out-smart each other with a series of tips on selected live fights to be screened on Sky Sports 1 HD from 8pm.

McCrory, a former world cruiserweight champion, will raise money for children with cancer with every winning selection he picks.

Likewise, Nelson, who held the WBO cruiserweight belt for over six years, hopes to accumulate winnings for victims of Parkinson's disease.

He who raises the most will earn the bragging rights in the first of four 'Fight Night Live' tipping challenges this summer, with Gavin Rees verses Anthony Crolla the main event of the opening card.

Sky Bet sportsbook trader Ned Brooker said: "It's a good cause and a bit of banter between the lads and we wish them all the best with their selections."
