Highly motivated and with the confidence of what he defines as the best preparation of his career, Argentinean and World Boxing Organization (WBO) Latino junior middleweight champion, former world title challenger Javier “La Bestia” Maciel, travelled to Sheffield, England, for his highly anticipated challenge against Englishman Brian “The Lion” Rose, in a WBO junior middleweight world title eliminator, that will take place on Saturday, October 26th., at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England, televised live by AWEtv and AWEtv.com.
Maciel and Rose clash on a massive boxing night in Sheffield. In the other main event, undefeated hometown favorite Kell Brook (30-0, 22 KOs) will face former Ukrainian world champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (34-1, 23 KOs) in an IBF welterweight world title eliminator.
After finishing his intense training camp in Las Vegas, where he stayed for three weeks with well known trainer Miguel Diaz, Maciel (27-2, 20 KOs), ranked WBO junior middleweight #5, and International Boxing Federation (IBF) #7, flew this Monday to Sheffield together with Diaz -who will be at his corner- for his fight against Rose (24-1-1, 7 KOs), current WBO intercontinental junior middleweight champion, ranked WBO junior middleweight #4 and World Boxing Council (WBC) #16. There he will join the rest of his team, headed by his manager and promoter, Mario Margossian, head of Argentina Boxing Promotions, his trainer Eduardo Molina, and his assistant Gustavo Garay Rezola, to participate in the promotional activities.
