Jamie Moore to fight mexican Esau Herrera at Homecoming

29 year old Jamie Moore (28-3, 19ko's) is set to face 23 year old Mexican Esau Herrera (14-3, 6ko's) in this Saturday's 'Homecoming event' at the City of Manchester Stadium.

The fight will be the first outing for the Salford native in 2008, following his victory over Andrew Facey in October last year and since his successful shoulder operation a few months ago.

Jamie is a massive Manchester United fan and his comeback appearance at the home of arch rivals City has already caused some banter with his good friend and Sky Blue fanatic Ricky Hatton.

“I text Ricky and told him that I’ll be wearing my United shorts for the fight and he text back ‘You better make sure you knock him out quick because you lot get no points at our ground.’” (Laughs)

On a more serious note, he added: “It’s fantastic exposure for me and hopefully I can get a good performance out because they will be some important people there from America, you know, people from Goldenboy. If I impress it might be sooner rather than later when I get a shot.”
