Also on the bill will be MGM New boy, Malcolm Klassen who is the 2 times former IBF world lightweight champion, “we are keen for him to box Richard Commey for the commonwealth but Commey looks like he is choosing an easier option. Klassen is also trained by myself & managed by MGM, since joining forces with our Spanish partners, our gym & promotions have gone from strength to strength. ” says Rowe in eager anticipation for Saturday night’s show. “Klassen & Munyai are world class boxers who have had world championships belts before. With the support from our partners at MGM Marbella & the tireless work that we have been doing at JR gym, I’m 100% confident that World titles will come again. The future looks bright!”.

Also on the bill is MGM managed Sean Creagh, who will have his second pro outing after his debut win in Birmingham earlier this year.
