Although a poor main event, the undercard is decent.

Zelfa Barrett vs Jordan McCorry - Commonwealth Super Feather
Lyndon Arthur vs Emmanuel Anim - Commonwealth Light Heavy
Troy Williamson vs Nav Mansouri - WBO Bauble Light Middle
Michael Ramabeletsa vs Jack Bateson - English Super Bantam

Both Arthur and Bateson are stepping up. Williamson-Mansouri is an interesting one on paper, and McCorry has shown he is a good test for the current crop of upcoming domestic super feathers.

Real career to be proud of when you look at that announcement. I always thought he was good, but never thought he would do what he has.

I hope he gets a big unification fight, deserves the chance to prove himself on the biggest stage after the run he has been on.

Also interesting to note is Muhammad Ali, 2016 Olympian who's fresh off serving a two-year ban for a failed drugs test, is scheduled to make his pro debut on this card.

warrington, a lot like BJS, has had an amazing career progression that warren can take a lot of credit for. slow steady growth in opponents, working though the levels and titles that means that no matter what happens from this point their careers have been a success.

obviously there is a lot of what ifs with BJS because hes made things so difficult for himself.

I cant see the Unification's happening for Warrington unless he is prepared to box Shakur which won't end well for him. Santa Cruz and Russell Jr are out of reach for him being on PBC.

His only hope is one of them moves up up and then he can try and get a extra belt that way but I doubt that they will have the name value to justify a Vegas fight.

The card has held together well. Assuming I don't jinx it, only Ramabeletsa-Bateson is off.

I think I'm most interested in seeing Arthur box.

Warren seems incapable a filling out his cards with local talent. Strange...
Seems like MTK is signing decent UK & IE fighters on a daily basis while Frank appears to be asleep at the switch. Doesn't look like Francis Jr. is going to be the savior either.
