Chacon to challenge McDonnell after Ramos pulls out

Javier Chacon will challenge Jamie McDonnell for the WBA World Bantamweight title at the sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night [Nov 22]  live on Sky Sports Box Office.

McDonnell is defending his WBA crown for the first time after he landed the belt with a spectacular KO win over Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat at Wembley Stadium in May, and the Doncaster star will take on Tomoki Kameda in a unification bout if he defeats Chacon this weekend.

Chacon tackled Super champion Anselmo Moreno earlier in the year, taking the Panamanian the distance, and the Argentine replaces Walberto Ramos on the bill after the Columbian had visa complications.
