SWINTON slugger Jon Baguley, aged 23, will compete for the Central Area light-welterweight title in a fight to be broadcast live on YouTube on March 2.

He will face Keiran Farrell over 10 rounds in Bury. Baguley (won 9 lost 20 drawn 2) has won only one of his last dozen and will be the underdog against Mancunian Farrell, 21, who has won all 11 pro fights and lost just one round over three years.

Farrell said: “Jon will bring the best out of me. He gives as good as he gets, and is the best opponent I have faced. I watched him hammer Vinny Mitchell who was unbeaten so he is a proper test.”
