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.
