Both men will be hoping to return to winning ways after suffering losses in their last fights. Conway at the hands of Frenchman Souleymane Cissokho on Canelo vs. Saunders card in Texas. Metcalf at the hands of Ted Cheeseman in a brilliant British title clash in Gibraltar.

‘Too Class’ (16-2-1, 3 KOs), who fought to a draw with Cheeseman when they met at Bethnal Green’s York Hall back in June 2019, wasn’t overawed when he stepped out to box in front of 70,000 fans at the AT&T Stadium and is relishing facing Liverpudlian Metcalf on away territory. Conway says he will be too big and too strong for Metcalf.

Kieron Conway: I can see a stoppage happening around midway

“He likes to move his feet in and out and side to side,” said Conway. “He’ll try to make it hard for me. Those things aren’t going to matter. We’ve all been hit hard, and I’ve been hit harder than James Metcalf can hit. I’m going to be ready for anything that he throws at me.

“I’m a big guy for the weight and he’s a small guy. He should be a weight below. Physical attributes are going to play a big part in this fight from the get-go. My boxing skills, knowledge and experience is going to come in to play as the fight goes on.

“I can see a stoppage happening around midway. I’m going to hit him a lot of times. I see me taking centre of the ring and him trying to push me back. I’ll do whatever I’ve got to do, not necessarily pushing him back, but I’ll take the centre of the ring and I’ll keep it.

“He’ll try and rough up, make it a mess, swing and try to knock me out. At the end of the day, his only chance is to knock me out. JJ’s fight with Ted Cheeseman was an outstanding fight, but you don’t need to be in those fights, especially when you’re getting on a bit in your career.

“I’m not sure who has more pressure on their shoulders. I do know that there’s pressure on me to win this fight. It’s not affecting me, because what will be will be. What will be is a Kieron Conway win. British level isn’t all that Conway will be, and I’m ready to prove that now.”

In the main event former WBO super welterweight champion Liam Smith (29-3-1, 16 KOs) meets 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medalist and Rio 2016 Olympian Anthony Fowler (15-1, 12 KOs). Among other bouts, Shannon Courtenay defends her WBA bantamweight title against Jamie Mitchell.
