The clash of Lancashire rivals is set to take place at Preston’s Guild Hall this Saturday as Mick Hall takes on Blackpool’s Jack Arnfield for the WBA International Middleweight title.
An eagerly waited rematch between two foes as Hall will be seeking revenge for Arnfields split decision victory in a prizefight victory back in 2015.
Jack Arnfield who has since then gone on to claim the WBA International Middleweight Title after his win over John Ryder in September.
In an interview with Arnfield he stated that training has been going “really really good, I have been sparring great and I’m hitting hard and looking good. “
The Middleweight Champion suggested that the rematch will be a much “bigger scenario” for the fans. “There will be a lot of tensions in the fight with it being a rematch, but it will be a great fight for the fans with there being a lot more people watching the fight and there is more investment as well”.
“When you are the champion there will always be pressure, however though the aim for me is to win and to win stylishly.” Arnfield added.
Reflecting on the first bout between the two, the Blackpool fighter stated that “I thought the fight was close and that I won, It was only over three rounds and I had come back from a long injury stint, but this will be different.
He’s made it personal whereas for me it’s always been strictly professional, I’ll get massive satisfaction when I beat him and beat him well” claimed Arnfield.
Arnfield has also suggested that he feels Hall “will crumble and won’t know what to do” when fighting in his “own backyard”.
Arnfield’s fellow Jennings Gym fighter Mark Jeffers is also fighting as he takes on Anthony Fox in his fourth professional bout.
It is the first ITV boxing special for a seven year period as they look to showcase some of Britain’s biggest and brightest talent.
