This Saturday night is a big moment in the career of Belfast's Sean McComb when he fights Gavin Gwynne in what is a calculated gamble that should pay off.

Sean is unbeaten as a light-welterweight but is now having his first fight at lightweight with the vacant Commonwealth title on the line in Dubai. Not many people would go straight in at a new weight, particularly at a lower division, and go for a 12-rounder but that shows you the confidence that Sean and his team have.

But it has to be said that the move down to lightweight is the big unknown in this fight. Weighing up every other element, I would make Sean a clear favourite against Gwynne but there is no doubt we are going to find out whether or not he is a strong fighter at the lower weight class and someone who can fulfil his potential at 135lb.
