Spain is going through a good moment in the boxing world and its fighters are getting great opportunities thanks to their quality. Kerman Lejarraga is one of the Iberian country’s warriors and will step into the ring at the Bilbao Arena to face British James Metcalf for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental super welterweight championship. 

Matchroom Boxing announced that it will make a big event in Bilbao and Lejarraga will be the protagonist, he is a native of the city, who has earned worldwide recognition for his great fights and the excitement he has left in the fans. 

The 30-year-old fighter will have a golden opportunity to fight in his own house and dispute a regional title of such magnitude. He is on a roll with six wins in a row and four knockouts in his career. 

The British fighter will have an experienced opponent. Metcalf comes from two defeats in a row but has a good record and the necessary motivation to spoil Lejarraga’s party. The Liverpool native is 33 years old and in his last fight lost to Kieron Conway in a close decision.

The pioneer organization celebrates that places like Bilbao can host great fights.
