GAVIN Gwynne and Craig Woodruff have been going through their final preparations for the British lightweight title clash in Cardiff on Saturday evening.

Gwynne, from Trelewis but trained by Tony Borg at St Joseph’s Boxing Club, held onto the belt against Newport’s Woodruff in a dramatic draw in Bolton last September.

The pair will have a rematch on the undercard of Joe Cordina’s bid to become a two-time IBF super-featherweight world champion when facing Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov at Cardiff International Arena (live on DAZN).

Gwynne and Woodruff put on a terrific show in Lancashire last year when the former was up 116-113 on one scorecard with the others level 114-114, although both fighters felt they had done enough for victory.

The pair were put through their paces at an open workout in the capital ahead of this weekend, with Borg training Gwynne (15-2-1) and Luke Pearce preparing Woodruff (12-6-1).

Cordina was scheduled to make the first defence of his world title against Rakhimov in Abu Dhabi last November but suffered a hand injury that required surgery and was subsequently stripped of his title by the IBF.

Tajikistan’s Rakhimov won the vacant title by stopping Manchester’s Zelfa Barrett in nine rounds.

Manchester Cruiserweight Jordan Thompson puts his IBF European title on the line against Swindon’s Luke Watkins and Derby’s Sandy Ryan will clash with Canada’s Marie-Pier Houle for the vacant WBO Welterweight title.

World title challenger Zelfa Barrett faces Jason Sanchez for the WBA continental super-featherweight title and there’s action for Australia’s undefeated Skye Nicolson, Swansea featherweight Brandon Scott and Swansea light-heavyweight Sammy Lee.
