PROMOTER Dennis Hobson is to host American featherweight Jerry Guevara for a month to give Doncaster world title contender Jamie McDonnell the best sparring available before trying to land the IBF belt at the Keepmoat Stadium in May.

The Texan-based 23-year-old is said to emulate the style of McDonnell’s Mexican bantamweight rival Julio Ceja.
