Undercard Highlights

Unbeaten prospects Chris Kongo (12-0, 7KOs) and Michael McKinson (19-0, 2KOs) both put it all on the line in this WBO Global welterweight title clash.

Chris '2Slick' Kongo from Bermondsey (the same south London town that Cheeseman is from) is the defending champion taking on 'The Problem' from Portsmouth, who has been very vocal at his frustration about being avoided by his domestic rivals, so he gets the chance to prove himself finally. McKinson is backfoot, awkward fighter, who wins his fights on points - his last five 10-rounders all went the distance. Kongo comes into his maiden title defence with a stoppage win behind him.

Background

JJ Metcalf has been after his big title shot for a long time now, so this is well deserved for the unbeaten Merseysider.

Londoner Cheeseman as been in three British title fights already so will be heading into this championship clash with the greater experience on his side.

32-year-old Metcalf hasn't fought for over a year, and even then it was only a standard win over a Czech Republic journeyman. However, he has scored knockouts in all his last seven contests and there's some good wins in there against former British middleweight champion Jason Welborn for the Commonwealth super-welterweight title in June 2019; he also won the WBC International title one year before that, against a Spanish champion.

Cheeseman's last fight was only in August last year, so certainly has big fight experience and momentum behind him going into what will be his fourth British title contest.

 

Predictions

Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “I'm going to side with Ted Cheeseman having fought in three British championship bouts already. He has actually won, drawn, and lost in his three British title fights, experiencing every possible result. I think Ted may have turned the corner after the terrible 2019 year where he didn't win any of his three fights. His recent victory over Sam Eggington will stand him in good stead here and I think he could outpoint Metcalf over the 12-round distance."
