Commonwealth flyweight champion Jay Harris wants this weekend’s European title fight with Angel Moreno to be the first of many massive events in Cardiff.

Unbeaten Harris (15-0, 8 KOs) faces Moreno on a huge #MTKFightNight event at the Vale Sports Arena, live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and also live on iFL TV, and the Welsh star wants more big nights in the future.

Harris said: “It’s great to be headlining such a great show in Wales and hopefully there will be many more to come. There are some brilliant fighters on the bill and it’s going to be a fantastic night in Cardiff.

“I think the fans should expect a great fight between me and Moreno. It’s going to be a a very exciting fight that they will probably remember for a long time.

“It’s great that it’s on ESPN+ in America too, because the fight being shown in America can help grow my fan base there. Maybe one day I could fight in America too which would be something I’d love.

“First things first though, I’ve got this fight with Moreno on Saturday and I’m fully focused on becoming the new European flyweight champion.”


Saturday’s stacked #MTKFightNight event at the Vale Sports Arena in Cardiff also features a battle for the WBO European title, as Stephen Ormond has a much-anticipated rematch with Craig Evans.

A star-studded undercard includes unbeaten Kazakh kings Zhankosh Turarov and Sultan Zaurbek, plus their are plenty of Welsh heroes on the bill too, as Sean McGoldrick, Kieran Gething, Jacob Robinson, Alex Hughes and many more are in action.
