Bellotti to appear at Vicarage Road during Saints clash

Reece Bellotti will take to the Vicarage Road pitch tomorrow as anticipation builds for the first defence of his Commonwealth title.

The South Oxhey featherweight faces Ben Jones at London’s O2 Arena on February 2 where he will look to take his unblemished record to 12-0.

He will be in attendance as Watford take on Southampton in a crucial Premier League clash and will present both his International Silver and Commonwealth titles to the Hornets crowd.

The 27-year-old is a rapidly rising name in the boxing world and is looking to build as much local backing as possible for next month’s bout at York Hall.

Jones will be the toughest test of the Bomber’s career to date as he come up against an opponent with record of 22-6-1, including 10 knockouts.

The 35-year-old’s most recent outing saw him suffer a spilt decision loss to Jason Cunningham, who Bellotti overcame to win his Commonwealth crown.
