Stuart Hall makes the first defence of his British Bantamweight Title on “Friday Fight Night” tomorrow night in rematch against former foe Martin“Too Much” Power at Rainbow Meadows in Sunderland.
Hall 30, won the title on June 4th this year in a farcical victory over Ian “Dapa” Napa, with Napa retiring on his stool with four rounds to go of 12, apparently well ahead on the judges scorecards.
Power is back in the ring after a seven month absence since his 5th round KO of Matthew Edmonds, but the 30 year-old has only won two of his last sevens bouts, one of which was an 8th round KO defeat against the current champion.
Whilst the champion from Darlington is undefeated in nine fights since turning pro in 2008, with just one draw on his record and will be looking to continue his good run in the bantamweight division as a commonwealth challenge could be in the offing.
Power on the other hand is hoping to get his career back on track and a British Title win this Friday would certainly be the boost the Londoner needs.
Also on the card is Olympic Bronze Medallist Tony Jeffries who fights in his home town against Surrey-based Pole Michael Banbula. Super-Bantamweight Matthew Marsh has withdrawn from his bout with against Kris Hughes.
