Promoter Frank Warren has revealed there is a good chance Alex Arthur will be granted the chance to fight rival Michael Gomez in a rematch this year.However, the Edinburgh fighter must first overcome Michael Kizza on Saturday night when the pair go head-to-head for the vacant IBF Intercontinental title.
 

Arthur has not fought since he was knocked out by Gomez in front of his home town support at Meadowbank five months ago.Mancunian Gomez stripped Arthur of his unblemished record and British super-featherweight title last October when he stopped him in the fifth round.Since the defeat, Arthur has been itching for another bout with Gomez, and Warren admits he is keen to see pair fight for a second time.And, although the 25-year-old Edinburgh fighter is desperate to make a winning return to the ring against Ugandan Kizza, he has his sights firmly set on a rematch with Gomez.Arthur has recently returned from Los Angeles where he was training with legendary American coach Freddie Roach and he believes he is in the best shape of his life. Gomez is currently preparing for his bout next week against Ghanaian southpaw Eric Odumasi for the vacant WBU super featherweight title in Manchester.Arthur is hoping the Mancunian comes through the fight unscathed to boost the chances of a rematch.
