The pair met in the Bassett Suite at The Hawthorns, home of their beloved West Bromwich Albion, this afternoon.

There were plenty of heated exchanges as the duo met to promote ‘Neutral Ground: Battle of the Baggies’, sponsored by Alliance Scaffolding and Grosvenor Casino Walsall.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Langford said. “I’ve got to hand it to Errol Johnson and BCB for making a great matchup and a great event.

“It’s great for the Black Country and the Midlands. It’s going to be brilliant night for me and my fans and I’m looking forward to putting on a show.

“People talk about Jason being a ‘banger’; he’s got a lower knock our record than me. I give Jason his due; he’s a good fighter when he’s on top but I know 100% how to deal with him. And I will deal with him.

“I’m a Black Country lad born and bred. This is belt is staying in the Black Country with me.”
