Frank Maloney Boxing: Napa Confident For McDonnell Fight

Ian Napa insists he has nothing to fear when he risks his career against Jamie McDonnell at Brentwood Centre on Friday night.

Napa (19-7) defends his British bantamweight title against his Doncaster challenger and if successful faces Jerome Arnould for the European crown in France on March 6.

Defeat against McDonnell (12-2-1) would ruin Napa's chances of regaining his old crown, but the Londoner's confidence is sky high after regaining the British crown from Gary Davies last year.

He said: "It does not matter to me; I can fight on the ropes or in the centre of the ring.

"I don't have to go crazy and throw wild punches, it does not matter to me if I have home advantage or not, a ring is just a ring and there are just two boxers in it."

Napa, 31, lost the European title to another Frenchman Malik Bouziane last year and his manager/trainer Brian Lawrence added: "I have drilled it in to Ian to forget about the March date.

"We are looking at McDonnell as the toughest fight of his career and I know Ian is in for a hard night, but I am confident his class and experience will tell."

A fantastic vacant English flyweight title sees Cheshunt's Ashley Sexton (8-0) meet Derby's former British and Commonwealth title challenger Usman Ahmed.
