Lifelong Saddlers supporter and former British Boxing Champion joins us for today's game...

Today we're honoured to welcome to then Banks's a lifelong Saddlers fan who shocked the nation back in November by claiming the IBF Inter-Continental Super Lightweight Title at Wembley Arena.

After being called up at less than a weeks notice, Martin Gethin unleashed a deadly barrage of punches towards the end of the 4th round in his contest with John Wayne Hibbert to secure a stunning knock-out victory live on Sky Sports.

A former Midlands, English and British Lightweight Champion, he's regularly seen down here at the Banks's supporting the Saddlers.

Martin will be appearing in the Stadium Suite ahead of kick-off and will show off his title on the pitch at half-time.


The club will also be showing the late kick-off (5.30pm) between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa across the Bonser Suite TV screens.

Savoy Lounge Pass holders are welcome to use the bar which will remain open throughout the coverage of the game.
