Cyrus Pattison and Chris Jenkins will star this Saturday at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle, England, in a welterweight bout in which the World Boxing Association (WBA) International belt will be at stake.
Pattison, 28, will have a great opportunity for the regional title of the pioneer organization in what will only be his sixth professional fight. The Newcastle fighter knows he needs a win over Jenkins to crown his rise and continue to look for good opportunities in the highly competitive welterweight division.
In the case of Jenkins, he is a 34-year-old veteran who will appeal to his experience to pull off the upset. The Welshman has faced experienced opponents like Tyrone McKenna or Julius Indongo, so he has an interesting record for this clash.
Pattison has 5 wins, is undefeated and has knocked out 3 opponents. For his part, Jenkins has 23 wins, 6 losses, 3 draws and 8 knockouts.
