He was the favourite when odds came out, Heffron is seen as an up and coming prospect, but if he stands infront of Vassell it could be a long night for him

thats the only thing putting me off going heavy on vassell. heffron is completely untested and vassells fought at a reasonably high level, just dont know what he's been doing the past year

Heffron is very hyped dating back to his teenager years.. I'll be on Vassel. Sneaky feeling Heffron is nothing more than an early bloomer, seen nothing of him in the pro's to suggest he's anything special.

Heffrons record is a bit light but Dentons inactivity might well bite him up the arse. If Vassell had been more active recently it would be no contest.

Anyone think Vassell could get robbed on the scorecards
Isn't it in Heffrons hometown?

Not really, more s Vassells. Heffrons an Oldham lad, Dentons from Ancoats

I know the Heffrons quite well, Ronnie is decent but a bit gung ho. I think Mark is the better prospect

Apparently Vassell looked pretty tight at the weigh-in yesterday.

I like Heffron, seems a good kid... but if he's to do anything he's got to think before charging in.

Some things he does are really good, stepping sideways to let the body shots go etc, but he's got a tendency to fire them a bit low sometimes.

Heffron by decision at 5/2 with a few bookies is a tempter.

If Heffron remembers when putting his gumshield in to also put his brain in he will win a points decision, if he leaves it in the changing room he will get outclassed or stopped.
