Undercard Highlights

The co-main event features Mikey ‘The Problem’ McKinson (18-0, 2KOs), a former WBO European welterweight titleholder who holds a lofty WBO #8 ranking.

The Portsmouth puncher goes up against Scottish welterweight Martin Harkin (13-0, 5KOs), who proved his worth in his last fight with unbeaten James Moorcroft (13-1, 5KOs) in January this year when he finished him off in brutal fashion in the fifth round.

The Celtic welterweight champion has scored stoppages in all his biggest fights – four from his last six contests – so is a dangerman, but he can’t match McKinson for experience and quality of opponents right now. Four of McKinson's last opponents had a combined record of 58-4-3.

Predictions

Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: "Harris is heavier handed than slickster Sunny Edwards so will have more of a chance of stopping the challenger, which is what will be expected of him even though it’s a very tough title defence.

It’ll be interesting to see Braithwaite at flyweight but I believe Harris will be too good and likely beat him in every department to win comfortably on points, although I see the champion forcing the stoppage towards the championship rounds."

Background

Welshman Jay Harris (17-1, 9KOs) returns to domestic level after his valiant WBC World flyweight title attempt against hard-hitting Mexican Julio Cesar Martinez (16-1, 12KOs) in February this year in Texas.

30-year-old Harris was unbeaten up to then and now comes back to defend his Commonwealth strap for a second time to the newest challenger, reigning English super-flyweight champion, Marcel Braithwaite (9-2).

The 26-year-old challenger from Liverpool lost his last fight for the British super-flyweight title by unanimous decision but he did floor the winner, Sunny Edwards (15-0, 4KOs), in the seventh round.

Harris is a very different fighter than slickster Sunny Edwards so will be more likely to go on the front foot, aggressively taking the fight to Braithwaite, who will provide a very tough title defence for the champion.
