Jamie McDonnell, Stuey Hall Could Clash Later This Year

FRANK MALONEY believes European bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell is on a collision course with British king Stuey Hall later this year.

McDonnell (16-2-1) has more pressing things on his mind like Saturday’s Commonwealth title defence against Kenyan Nick Otieno (21-6) at Hillsborough Leisure Centre, Sheffield.

Maloney promotes both men and believes a triple title domestic showdown will capture public imagination.

He said: “Right now in Britain the best domestic fighters are facing each other and that trend needs to continue.

“We’ve had James DeGale-Georges Groves, in July Kevin Mitchell takes on John Murray and Jamie against Stuey can stand alongside them.

“Jamie didn’t seem so keen recently believing he has passed Stuey, but I am sure he and his manager Dennis Hobson can see that is the biggest payday until moves for a world title.

“There is no reason why it cannot happen in September or October at the very latest.”

McDonnell’s trainer Stefy Bull is confident of the outcomes against Hall, warning the Darlington man: “You can have it because there will only be one winner.”

Maloney expects Otieno to give the Doncaster man a tough test in the Sky televised show adding: “All of Nick’s defeats have been to men with world title aspirations and last time out he went the distance with a top class Thai fighter, Thangtong Kiattaweesuk.

“I don’t doubt for one second that Jamie will give a master class, but a stoppage win would be a special result.”
