YOKKAO 44: Joe Craven vs Alex McGregor
Another potentially explosive matchup has just been confirmed for YOKKAO 44 that is set to take place in Bolton. UK middleweight number one, Joe Craven will take on young Scottish talent, Alex MacGregor in a 72-kg faceoff.
Fighting out of the renowned Bad Company Gym, Craven needs little introduction for the UK fight fans. He has achieved an unbeaten record in all his four appearances on the YOKKAO promotions to date. After his victory against Chris Shaw in March, Craven will return to the Bolton stage to face his towering opponent.
McGregor made UK fans sit up and take notice when he made his promotional debut at YOKKAO 37. The 23-year-old fighter went into the fight as the underdog against hot-favorite, Niall Brown. McGregor put on a stunning performance to take home the win via decision and earned his ticket for his return to the YOKKAO ring this October.
Craven and McGregor will join the anticipated female bout between Niamh Kinehan and Jodie Clunan at YOKKAO 43-44. The double event will be held on 26 October at the University of Bolton Stadium. Headlining acts and more details on the fight card will be released in the coming weeks.
