Promoter Dennis Hobson admits he has a few reservations over the task facing European champion Jamie McDonnell at Doncaster Dome on January 22.
A loss for Nappa would not give him many more places to go and would maybe put an end to his fighting days.

Where as a win for Flanagan against a British boxing name such as Nappa, would be a massive achievement considering he is taking a gambled step up in class and is relatively unknown outside of his Manchester suburb.
Terry has got the style to cause Nappa problems, also this will be the fight that puts Terry on the map, not a lot of people have heard about or seen him box so this is his chance for his career to take off.” – Stephen Maylett
