Ceja vows to KO McDonnell on May 11th

By James Slater

Unbeaten 20-year-old Mexican banger Julio Ceja is confident he will win by KO on May 11th when he faces Britain’s Jamie McDonnell in McDonnell’s hometown of Doncaster. The fight will contest the vacant IBF super-bantamweight title, and Ceja has watched McDonnell on You Tube to get himself prepared. “I’ve seen videos [of McDonnell] and I respect him,” Ceja informed Hatton TV. “But he’s never fought one single durable opponent. I’m used to fighting in different parts of Mexico. In the ring it’s only me and Jamie, the people won’t help to defend him from my power. I’m very confident I can knock him out.”

27-year-old McDonnell is also confident, and he is looking forward to making history as Doncaster’s first ever world champion, but he has a tough assignment ahead of him. Ceja has 22 KOs from his 24 wins and he has been very active throughout his career, with six wins in 2012 and one win this year so far. McDonnell (20-2-1, 9 KOs) has proven his class at European level, but can he make the move to world level? Ceja, who hasn’t himself really faced any top-10 material thus far, doesn’t think so.
