It is really slim pickings as we get into January and domestically, we are looking to Scotland to kick off 2020 but not for a little while yet…
It leaves us looking to the USA for any kind of world title action and they have on Saturday the 11th of January, the WBC and WBO super middleweight titles on the line between Franchon Crews Dezurn and Alejandra Jimenez. I am left with going for name recognition here and think I might like Jiminez for this but this is purely because I recognise his name!!! It’s a tough start to the year let me tell you…
One name that I very much recognise is former Connor Benn nemesis, Cedrick Peynaud who is fighting for the BENELUX welterweight title against Anass Messaoudi in Brussels. Records would suggest that Messaoudi gets the title and I am hardly in a place to argue!
Next week it does get busier – look below…
