Heffron set for stadium clash
MARK Heffron will fight on the biggest stage of his career so far when he competes at Elland Road in Leeds this weekend.
The Oldham boxer is in action on the undercard of Lee Selby’s IBF featherweight title defence against domestic rival Josh Warrington, with more than 25,000 fans expected to be in attendance.
Heffron faces experienced Adam Grabiec, who has been stopped in only three of his 25 professional contests.
Grabiec is a regular opponent on British shores, having fought the likes of Peter McDonagh, Dale Evans, Tamaka Mucha, Mark Thompson and Ben Davies in his career.
His last outing saw him go up against Larry Ekundayo at the Brentwood Centre back in March, with Ekundayo picking up a six round points win.
Heffron will be looking for the 19th win of his professional career against Grabiec, with the 26-year-old currently having a record of 18-0.
