When I first saw this bout I thought "What a load of rubbish" but as long as Gavin gets back in the ring by April this bout is ok. A nice local rivalry between fans just like the old days. Should be a cracking atmosphere.
You also have local lad Martin Gethin against a favourite of mine in Ben Murphy (his effort against the bigger Theophane was nothing short of heroic) for the British & Commonwealth Lightweight title & another Walsall lad, Chris Keane, versus another tough fighter with a deceiving record, Shane McPhilbin.
From those six fighters alone five live within 50 miles of the venue. And 'Mr Block' has some raucous fans.
Wish I could be there.
