BRENT'S Olympic hero James DeGale makes his eagerly-awaited homecoming on February 13 - and you could be at Wembley Arena to welcome him.
The Harlesden super-middleweight, who won the gold medal in Beijing 18 months ago, is now fighting for the first time as a professional in his home city.
He has already won his first five bouts since turning pro last year, including stoppages against Jindrich Kubin, Ciaran Healy and Ally Morrison.
And DeGale's clash with Matthew Barr is just one element in the 'Night of the Champions' show, which features several more of Britain's best young boxing prospects.
Kevin Mitchell is aiming to take another step towards a world title challenge as he defends his WBO intercontinental lightweight crown against Ignacio Mendoza.
British welterweight champion Kell Brook takes on Poland's Krzysztof Bienias in a WBO world title eliminator, while Nathan Cleverly faces Antonio Brancalion for the vacant European light-heavyweight title.
DeGale's fellow Olympians Frankie Gavin and Billy Joe Saunders will also be on the bill, along with the Walsh brothers - Liam, Michael and Ryan - and Finchley heavyweight Derek Chisora.
The Times has linked up with promoter Frank Warren to offer five lucky readers a pair of tickets each for the Wembley Arena show.
To stand a chance of winning, you need to answer the following question:
How many knockouts has James DeGale recorded in his professional career to date?
a) Two. b) Three. c) Five.
