Watson v Lomax is a really interesting fight. Aside form booth Napa, and Thompson Vuma I'd say its possibly pick of the card, although matvienko is always entertaining.

For info;
Vuma weighted in just under 11st.
Thompson weighted in at 10st 12.5.... eating a banana!!! Wish I'd a got a photo of that one

Going to be a cracking fight

As mentioned - there are still tickets available on the night - so get yourself down there!!!

"I'm just going to get in there and do what I do" - MARK THOMPSON

Many boxing fans are unsure whether Mark Thompson - this talented light-middleweight from Haywood, has bitten off more than he can chew by accepting to fight the solid Vincent Vuma.

Vuma, 31, was due to fight Jamie Moore for the WBC International Title on July 6 at the Robin Park Centre in Wigan, until a viral infection put paid to the Salford fighter's preparations.

The show must go on, though few would have expected Mark - who at 11-0 with six KOs is still fulfilling his potential - to step up and take on such a dangerous opponent.

But Thompson is that kind of character, he's from the old school. He'll fight anyone, anywhere at any time and feels confident of victory over the South African.

"Yes, I'm ready, it's very short notice but I wouldn't have agreed to fight him if I wasn't sure I could beat him," said Mark, who is married with two children - Mark and Chloe.

"I only found out on Wednesday afternoon (June 27) that I was going to fight him, but it doesn't matter to me. It'll be my first 12-rounder so we've stepped up a gear in training and I'm working hard. I don't know how the fight will go, I'm just going to get in there and do what I do, I'll do the business.

"I've not watched the CD of his fights yet, I've only received it today (the Friday before the fight) and will take a look later on."

And if he gets past Vuma? Which we're confident he will.

"The WBC International belt will do my ranking no harm at all, I guess in that way it's on a par with the British (title). The British title is my next aim, but for now I'm concentrating on Vuma, and victory."

Thanks man, and it is a gutsy move for Thompson to step up. Hope it works out for him.

Obviously it was too much of a step up for Tommo, but I always say you learn a lot more in defeat than you ever do in a victory, so hopefully his progress will be accelerated.
