    This fight has been put out to purse bids for next month for the English title. I would imagine there is minimal chance Big Mick will outbid Frank Warren for this fight.

    Would this be enough for Nathan Heaney to headline a card? Not sure if there is am arena in Stoke bigger than the hall he has previously headlined at.

    Lennox Clarke vs Zak Chelli has been agreed for October for the British belt, would NH vs RBW be better as the co main to this in Birmingham.

    Wilson is decent whereas Heaney is quite limited, not sure they’d take this one. Be good if it does happen, but doubt it’s a headliner.

    I think Heaney could get exposed quite quickly to be honest. I hope not as he seems a sound bloke.

    Knowing Mick he’d probably bid strongly for this. The man is a dark horse.

    I agree. He just doesn’t look to have that much to his game past a decent engine / work rate when I see him.
