Fight week is here for JR’s Gym, MGM Marbella and Harrison Promotions as former World Title challenger Tshifhiwa Munyai tops the bill from Preston’s Evogue Nightclub in an IBF International title contest which is also a final eliminator for the Commonwealth Featherweight title.

Munyai has looked refreshed and devastating in camp under head coach Johnney Roye at his base in Preston and looks to make a statement as he takes on Oscar Chauke.

As previously reported, MGM new boy former 2 time IBF Super Featherweight Champion Malcolm Klassen makes his first appearance on British soil for over a decade as he takes part in a 6 round contest. This is a keep busy fight for Klassen, as he targets a showdown with undefeated Ghanian Richard Commey in the future. It is no secret that Commey has been an avoided fighter but Klassen has set his sights on an All African showdown with Commey, which would no doubt be all out war and a spectacle for any fight fan to see.

The bill from Preston on Saturday night features Michael Ramabeletsa fighting at Super Bantamweight as he appears to have been given a new lease of life under Roye and MGM. The undoubtedly talented Ramabeletsa looks to fulfill his potential and looks to show off his improvements this coming Saturday night.

Roye trained undefeated Super Lightweight Ash Peyton features on the Preston card. Peyton is a fighter with big ambitions of his own as he looks to put the Lancashire town of Leigh on the boxing map. The very likeable is one of the hardest workers in boxing, working from the crack of dawn till sunset and finding time to continue his training as a pro. Ash looks to make it 7-0 on Saturday night.

Liam Conroy returns from a lay off after defeat to Chello Renda in Prizefighter in Blackpool earlier this year. Conroy who is still young at only 23 is set to bring a vocal travelling contingent down from Barrow as he looks to get back to winning ways as he targets a title shot in 2016.

Saturday nights show also features Lyndon Newman who also looks to get back to winning ways as he fights for the first time in over 2 years. The now more experienced Newman has time on his side as he, like Conroy, is only 23 and looks to fulfill his potential starting with victory on Saturday night.

Bantamweight Marc Leach looks to continue his winning ways as a pro. After an early setback in the pro ranks he has racked up 4 wins from his last 4 outings and looks to continue his fine form on Saturday night. Leach has the pleasure of sparring the likes of Ramabeletsa and Munyai on a regular basis, something which will bring him on at a fast pace.

MGM Marbella managed Sean Creagh has his second pro outing after his debut win in Birmingham earlier this year. The Dublin Welterweight looks to continue his education as a professional on Saturday night alongside Oliver Harrison’s charge Josh McLaren who has his ninth professional contest at Light Welterweight.
