Kerman Lejarraga and James Metcalf meet today in a 10-round junior middleweight main event from Bilbao, Spain, a fight that promises action and could easily steal the show on this entire weekend.
We’ll be here from 2 pm ET for live coverage and updates, which will come in the comments section of this post.
Lejarraga, 30, is welcoming yet another British fighter — the seventh to face him — to his home country, and has his eyes set on a possible bigger fight with former titleholder Liam Smith. But the 33-year-old Metcalf (who is officially going by “James” and not “JJ” anymore, it appears) is no pushover, a tough guy who always comes to fight. Style-wise, these two match up for something that could be really exciting.
The show will also feature a vacant European flyweight title fight and some unbeaten prospects in action.
Join us this afternoon!
