Hall vs Donnelly: Stuey Wants Jamie McDonnell Next

BRITISH bantamweight champion Stuey Hall is chasing a summer showdown against Sheffield’s European king Jamie McDonnell.

Promoter Frank Maloney believes he can make the match provided Hall (10-0-1) comes through his domestic defence against John Donnelly (12-1) at Rainton Meadows Arena, Houghton-le-Spring on Saturday April 9.

Hall, 31, is currently ranked fifth by the EBU and hopes his Yorkshire rival will make a voluntary defence.

The Darlington boxer, 31, said: “Jamie has done so well upsetting top fighters, but he still has to prove he is the best in Britain.”

Maloney promotes both fighters and is keen on the fight that will capture public imagination, but is yet to approach McDonnell’s manager Dennis Hobson.

Maloney said: “I don’t want to take Stuey’s focus off Donnelly who has improved greatly in his last few fights.

“Provided he comes through and looks good doing so I will see if Sky Sports are interested and hopefully make the fight which would be a big bout for northern England.

“When Stuey was living a wildly in Ibiza a few years ago, this sort of success is the last thing anybody would expect, but he is proof that if you knuckle down great things can happen.”

Hall won the British crown against Ian Napa and will win a Lonsdale belt outright if he makes a successful third defence against scouser Donnelly.

In the chief supporting bout Rendall Munroe returns to action in a non-title eight rounder. It is the Leicester binman’s first fight since he lost on points to WBC super-bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka last October
