Champion Jamie Moore is straining at the leash to go out and prove, once and for all, he is the best Light Middleweight in Great Britain and also the little matter of responding to certain snide comments which have been made about his eagerness to take this fight. As far as Jamie is concerned, it's put up or shut up time! And anyone who has seen the way Moore has carved up his most recent challengers to the title he won back in 2003, will know this is a man who you don't want to get angry.
For the last few years Matthew Macklin, the Mancunian based Brummie, has been making men and women turn weak at the knees for different reasons. The good looking former ABA Champion turned professional at 18, and had TV pundit Barry McGuigan describing him as the "British Oscar De La Hoya" when he was still only 21. Since teaming up with Ricky Hatton's trainer Billy Graham, Macklin has gone from strength to strength and now returns to these shores after a successful stint of fighting in America.
This awesome pairing of two hugely popular and crowd pleasing fighters is just a taste of things to come as promoter Frank Maloney reveals this is only the first of three mouth-watering boxing shows he has got planned for the new season. "I am committed to boxing, want to deliver the best shows and give the fans what they want" says Maloney. "British boxing needs new blood" carries on Frank "and I won't rest until I produce the next big star".
This bold quest begins on the Moore v Macklin undercard when three unbeaten Maloney prospects feature in action. Former ABA champion Chris Pacey looks to carry on turning people heads with his stylish skills, Brett Flournoy (another former ABA champ) hopes to build on that impressive one round demolition pro debut last time out. And who can forget Craig Watson? The man who dumped Amir Khan on the seat of his pants looks to make it six fights unbeaten in his much anticipated return to the ring.
So light the fuse, retreat back to a safe distance and enjoy the show!
