Kieron Conway vs Navid Mansouri: Where to live stream, time, venue, who will win and all the pre-match buzz about Super Welterweight Championship
Kieron Conway and Navid Mansouri are all set to compete with each other in the 10 round junior middleweight clash for the WBA Inter-continental Super Welter Weight Championship. Conway weighed in at 10st 13¾ lbs (153¾ lbs), half a pound heavier than Mansouri at 10st 13¼ lbs (153 ¼ lbs).
Last year, Conway came close to winning the British Super-Welterweight title against Ted Cheeseman but failed to win it. After that incident, he has recorded back to back victories against Konbrad Stempkowski in October and Craig O'Brien in December 2019. It will be former English champ Mansouri’s first contest on UK soil since his six-round decision victory over Jordan Grannum in July 2017.

Pre-buzz surrounding the game
English Welterweight champion Mansouri is all set to get his career back in shape after losing two of his last three bouts. Even though the 31-year old Mansouri has plenty of experience in the field, but seems like his best days might well be behind him. Expressing the same, Mansouri told Dazn News, "I think they're overlooking me," and "They think Nav is done, but this fight just brought me back to life and I need this win. I’m desperate to get this win. It puts that little bit extra fire into it." “I'm confident. I’m well-schooled and experienced in this game now. We never stop learning. I think I'll have too much experience for Conway when it comes down to it. We shared some rounds a few years ago in Marbella but I can't take anything from that. I can’t remember too much from the spar. It was a long time ago, and he’s come on loads, and I’ve come on loads since then, too. I was injured back then as well. He's a really nice kid, but this is business and it's my chance to shine again in the UK," he added.
Who will win
It is a difficult prediction to make since both fighters make their first competitive appearance in the ring this year. Mansouri has age and experience and Conway's recent wins have shown he is hungry for more. While it won't be a quick win for either of the two, Conway could take the lead on points.
