Bantamweight Jamie McDonnell will fight for a world title at the stadium of his hometown football team, Doncaster Rovers.

McDonnell announced at a press conference this morning that he will face Mexican Julio Ceja for the vacant IBF belt on Saturday, May 11.

The 26-year-old will face Ceja for the title made available by Leo Santa Cruz last month at the Keepmoat Stadium - his first fight since he stopped Darwin Zamora as chief support to Kell Brook in October.

"I am delighted to be bringing the world title fight to the Keepmoat Stadium. Both Jamie and I have long been determined for his world title fight to take place at his home stadium," said his promoter, Dennis Hobson.

"Ceja's camp really wanted the fight to be staged in Mexico and we had to work really hard to bring this fight to South Yorkshire.

"The facilities at the Keepmoat Stadium are fantastic and Jamie is exceptionally proud to be showcasing Doncaster and the stadium to the world.

"We would love Jamie to be crowned the first boxing world champion from Doncaster in his home town on 11 May."

McDonnell has a record of 20-2-1 while Ceja has an unblemished 24-fight record and is six years his junior. This will be his first fight outside of Mexico.

If mcdonnell doest have a great chin he is getting sparked out. Ceja has a weird jerky style but is a true power puncher.:boxing:
