Nav Mansouri bids for a world ranking with IBF title shot next

Nav Mansouri will face Jorge Fortea for the IBF Intercontinental super-welterweight belt in Marbella on February 16.  

Yorkshireman Mansouri (19-1-2-KO6) will bid for a fourth straight victory on Spanish soil as he looks to add the world-ranking title to the English title he held for more than two years.

Mansouri was in ruthless form last time out; scoring a second-round stoppage of Bogdan Mitic in Torremolinos.

"To be honest I’m liking it in Marbella and I’m building a real following out here. I’m doing good tickets," the 29-year-old said.

Joining Mansouri on a busy bill at Palacio de los Deportes are team-mates Joe Sherriff, Ion Costin and Antoino Gomez.

Sherriff (12-1-KO3), who has been training at MTK Marbella since before Christmas, will take on local fighter Alvaro Terrero at cruiserweight as the Coventry star looks to begin his own surge towards title level.

Romanian-born lightweight Costin (5-1-2-KO2) – unbeaten since his debut – takes on the undefeated Brandon Oertel (7-0-KO3) while Gomez is up against Abdelaziz Zdite (3-0).
