Kerman Lejarraga and James Metcalf hosted the last press conference before their fight this Friday for the World Boxing Association (WBA) continental super welterweight title.

With the unparalleled aura of the famous San Mames stadium, home of the Athletic Bilbao soccer club, both fighters were face to face for a photo session after the press conference that took place in one of the halls of the venue.

Both fighters were very motivated to get the win but also happy to be in Spain for such an important fight and in contention for the vacant regional belt of the category. 

It was the last promotional event before the weigh-in on Thursday, where both fighters must weigh in at 154 pounds to qualify for the fight. 

Lejarraga has a record of 34 wins, 2 losses and 26 knockouts, while the British fighter has 22 wins, 2 losses and 14 knockouts.
