ABERTILLERY’S Jack Shore will face Brazilian Geraldo De Freitas at UFC London on Saturday, March 21.

The fight on The O2 show is Shore’s second in the UFC following his debut defeat of Nohelin Hernandez in Copenhagen last September.

De Freitas, 28, has one win and one loss to his name in the UFC, that setback coming against Chris Gutierrez last August in Uruguay.

“I’m not the best at predictions,” said Shore. “But I predict a win and a finish. Geraldo is very skilful, but I think I will come out on top.”

The night before Shore meets De Freitas, Blaenavon's Mason Jones locks horns with Italy's Danilo Belluardo at Cage Warriors 113.

Unbeaten Jones, 24, took his pro record to 8-0 last October with a unanimous points victory over Finnish rival Aleksi Mäntykivi.

Former UFC fighter Belluardo comes into the clash on the back of two losses - both on UFC shows - which took his record to 12-5.

Meanwhile, there are also some big nights coming up for Gwent boxers at shows in Cardiff, Llanelli and Bristol.

Tony Borg-trained Lloyd Germain will look to improve his 3-0 record against Northern Irishman Paul Cummings at Whitchurch Leisure Centre in Bristol on Saturday, February 29.

Risca’s Jake Tinklin (5-0) chases another win on the same promotion, although his opponent is still to be confirmed.

Back in Wales, also on February 29, Newport’s Craig Woodruff can build on an impressive defeat of Connor Marsden when he takes to the ring at Llanelli Leisure Centre.

Pontypool’s Kieran Gething and Germain’s St Joseph’s stablemate Lance Cooksey are in action in Cardiff on Saturday, March 14.

The Priority Boxing show at Vale Sports Arena sees Gething (9-2-2) face fellow Golden Contract super-lightweight quarter-final loser Darren Surtees (12-1).

With a perfect 11-0 record, Cooksey, whose opponent hasn’t been named, must be close to a maiden title fight.
