Ice Arena, Hull Yorkshire, two hungry fighters will fight for the vacant WBC super-bantamweight title in Gavin McDonnell, who has the support from the locals better show his hunger and determination to defeat a young lion Rey Vargas who will have legendary trainer Ignacio Beristain in his corner.
For Gavin this is the chance for him to join his brother Jamie McDonnell WBA bantam titlist as brother champions and also for the loud fervent UK fight fan base to add one more champion to their last years long list of champions which to me represent an UK Boxing Golden Era.
For Vargas, it is his first shot at a world title and to be honest I believe next Saturday he has a big chance to win and add his name to previous Mexican WBC super-bantamweight champions Juan Meza, Lupe Pintor, Daniel Zaragoza, Erik Morales, Oscar Larios, Israel Vazquez, Rafael Marquez, Abner Mares, Victor Terrazas, Leo Santa Cruz, Julio Ceja and Hugo Ruiz.
As for Nacho Beristain this is a really good opportunity for him to crown one more world champion, possibly his twenty seventh to add to his long list of boxing achievements.
It will be interesting to see how the boxing styles mix. I expect a boxing tactic exhibition from Vargas and McDonnell. As usual I demand from the referee to enforce the rules and avoid to allow excessive clinching, but I am realistic and can only hope this time the referee will do a clean efficient job.
