Craven, who beat the #2 Jake Purdy back at YOKKAO 32 to solidify his place as the UK #1, weighed in at 71.9kg with his opponent Chris Shaw coming in at 72kg, both under the 72.5kg limit.

The former ranked Chris Shaw will return to YOKKAO after almost 18-months out of the ring. Having beaten the current 69.8kg #2, Connor McCormack in his last bout in October 2017, Shaw is confident of a big win on his return and taking the #1 spot from the Bad Company star Craven.

It’s a classic England vs Scotland for the UK #1 spot and has the potential to be fight of the night on a card stacked full of talent. Who are you backing in this? Let us know in the comments below!
