The European Middleweight Championship
Kevin Finnegan v Gratien Tonna (GB) (France) live over 15 rounds from Monte Carlo
Commentator HARRY CARPENTER
A chance for a World-title fight with WBC champion Rodrigo Valdes is the probable prize for tonight's winner.
FINNEGAN, 27, defends the title he won a year ago in Paris. Tonight's fight is Finnegan's first since he boxed for three rounds with a broken jaw to beat Reiche, the German champion, on points in a non-title bout last November.
TONNA, 26, had 15 straight wins, including 11 inside the distance, before a controversial llth-round defeat in his world fight with Valdes, also last November.
'Tonna's tough but Kevin likes them to walk into him. He can pick that sort off all night long.'
