Buckland in Argi battle

Welsh super-feather Gary Buckland has landed the opportunity of a lifetime on April 27th when he fights on the undercard of Martin Murray v Sergio Martinez in Argentina. The Hatton promoted fighter 26, will take on Fernando David Saucedo in a clash which should put the victor close to a world title fight. Buckland had wanted to defend his British title but could not pass up the chance to get exposure on the world stage.

“I’ve got two notches on my belt to win the British title outright and I only need one more, but this is a shortcut to a world title,” Buckland told DAILY SPORT.

“I’ve watched Saucedo on DVD and he’s a good fighter so I know I won’t be in for an easy night over there.

“He boxed Chris John for a world title and he showed he’s a tough boxer with a good guard who likes to open up in his own time, but I think with my aggression I can go there and do a job on him.”
