The fight is taking place in Northampton against Terry Maughan and is the eldest Upton brothers first title fight and his first since November when he beat Zoltan Turai for his 11th straight win in the pro ranks.

“Training has gone great,” he said “I have worked harder for this fight more than any others as it´s my first ten rounder. I think it will go as planned and that´s a win for me whether on points or KO and me picking up the Irish title.”
