Pietro Menga vs. Mark Platts
FCC 5, Reebok Stadium, Bolton
The biggest all domestic fight of the weekend takes place on Saturday night in Bolton, as February's #4 and #8 ranked flyweight fighters duel in the main event of FCC 5.
Menga comes in with a perfect 8-0 record, and whilst Platts' 10-8 is not as immediately awe-inspiring, he has faced the tougher competition as it stands.
However, Menga will see this fight as a way to crack into the top five in impressive fashion, having dispatched everybody in his way so far.
Both fighters are well rounded, with striking and submissions in their arsenal. It should prove to be a high-paced encounter, with the local Menga having the lion's share of the support in the North West.
