Jordan Gill vs Emmanuel Dominguez

Gill claimed the Commonwealth title in his last fight, completing a classy stoppage win over Ryan Doyle, but the 24-year-old is already eager to test himself at a higher level against the battle-hardened Mexican.

Victory would propel Gill into the WBA top 10, and ‘The Thrill’ hopes to boost his profile in a division that includes IBF champion Josh Warrington, WBA title holder Leo Santa Cruz, and WBO king Oscar Valdez.

Richard Riakporhe vs Tommy McCarthy

Riakporhe displayed his destructive punch power as he pulled off a dramatic stoppage win over Sam Hyde in November, although he could be required to use more of his ring skills against McCarthy, a Commonwealth Games silver medallist.

Dillian Whyte is managing the career of Riakporhe and could be watching from ringside as the Londoner defends his WBA Inter-Continental cruiserweight strap against the Belfast-based man.

Anthony Sims Jr vs Mateo Damian Veron

Hot American prospect Sims Jr had called for another opportunity to display his slick skills to the British fans after marking his UK debut with a stoppage win in Cardiff.

The 24-year-old has stepped down to super-middleweight, but has not ruled out a future battle with Joshua Buatsi at light-heavyweight.

Who else is on JD NXTGEN bill?

Leigh Wood has linked up with trainer David Coldwell and will battle Abraham Osei Bonsu for the Commonwealth featherweight belt, which was vacated by gym-mate Gill.

A note to everyone in my division – “if you want a fight, I will bring war! ”.
I’m coming to take it all. 3W 3KO’s.
