A great fight between undefeated young fighters will be part of the main event this Saturday in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The event, which will feature Jack Catterall and Jorge Linares in the main event, will also feature the clash between British Peter McGrail and Colombian Fran Mendoza for the World Boxing Association (WBA) continental super bantamweight championship.
McGrail is a 27-year-old southpaw who has been making his way up in the division and is going for his first opportunity in a regional title fight. It will be his second 10-round fight but he said he is ready to take on the challenge at home.
Mendoza is more experienced but younger (26 years old) and resides in Spain, where he has made his entire career. It will be the first time outside the borders of the country that welcomed him and he needs to bring all that experience to beat the local and win the crown.
The local fighter has 7 wins, no losses and 5 knockouts. The visitor has 17 wins and 7 wins before the limit.
