Loua Nassa and Brad Watson were originally set to fight the contest at the Royal Jersey Showground according to the BBBofC, however been switched for TV coverage. Loua Nassa is highly touted in the South Yorkshire region along with Watson in his native Channel Islands. Watson who has been plagued by inactivity in the past 24 months, comes into his bout with Nassa with back to back defeats against Joseafat Reyes and Brett Fidoe. A caveat to this fight however will be that Watson has been out of the ring for over 12 months and only boxed twice in two years, so form as such goes out of the window due to inactivity.
