Article posted on 11.04.2007
Light middleweight Jamie Moore's much awaited fight this Friday against former two time world title challenger Sebastian Lujan will be supported by a solid undercard from Frank Maloney Promotions at the Altrincham LC in Manchester, England. The main co-feature pits bitter rivals Chris Edwards, 10-12-2 (3), and Dale Robinson, 19-3-1 (9), in a rematch for the vacant British and Commonwealth Flyweight titles. The two tangled previously last November and journeyman Edwards pulled off a career best performance with a shattering slugfest that stopped Robinson in the eighth round..
A former IBO title challenger, Robinson has vowed to reverse the loss and take both the British and Commonwealth belts home to Huddersfield while the reinvigorated English titlist Edwards is looking to consolidate his position as the best flyweight in the UK.
Featherweight southpaw Rendall Munroe, 10-1 (4), coming off a spirited effort to unseat British Champion Andy Morris a year ago, will face spoiler Youseff Al Hamidi, 2-3-1 (1), over six rounds. Munroe will have to be on point as Hamidi's opponents have had a combined record of 35-1-3 and the British based Syrian has acquitted himself well, winning two bouts, drawing one and losing two by a combined three points.
Light welter Gary O'Connor, 7-1 (1), looks to get back on the winning track after dropping a razor thin one point decision to undefeated current Celtic welterweight titlist Tony Doherty last November. The Manchester man faces a stiff test over six rounds in the form of the iron chinned Scott Haywood, 13-2 (3), who had previously pushed unbeaten John "Fireball" Fewkes to the brink.
Light middle prospect Mark Thompson, 10-0 (5), will be seeking to keep his perfect record intact in a six rounder against Midlands Area titlist Manocha Salari, 4-2-2 (3), who has previously stopped Martin Conception and drew with Gorkhan Kazaz and Simon Sherrington.
Lightweight Chris "Soldier Boy" Pacey, 3-1 (0), squares off with the man that derailed his burgeoning career just seven months ago, Danny Harding, 5-0 (1). Last September, Harding mounted a high volume attack versus the more accurate but less busy style of former British Army champion Pacey and walked away with a controversial one point victory.
Scheduled for four round bouts include middleweight Alex Matvienko, 6-0 (2), super bantam Stuart McFadyen, 5-0 (1), lightweight Gary Sykes, 2-0 (1) and light middle Brett Flournoy, 3-0 (1).
