TWO boxing brothers are in East London this weekend ready to cause carnage just like chilling gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray did.
Nicaraguan Nightmares Freddie and Francisco Fonseca will fight at the world famous York Hall in Bethnal Green, looking to do all their talking with their fists.
Francisco fights Alex Dilmaghani live on Channel 5, while Freddy takes on John Joe Nevin, both at super-featherweight.
And the two decided to head out to some of the Krays' old haunts dressed to impress just like the leaders of The Firm.
They stopped outside the famous Blind Beggar pub where Ronnie murdered George Cornell in front of witnesses.
Then it was a trot down Vallance Road where the chilling twins lived.
Speaking about their appearance this weekend in the capital, Francisco said: "On November 16, you’ll see the toughest brothers ever to fight in London.
"This ‘East End’ might be rough but it’s hardly the barrios of Managua!
"Forget these gangsters, our weapons are our fists and our records inside the ring proves we know how to use them.
"Destructively! Dilmaghani doesn't know what's coming his way."
Freddy added: "Nevin and Dilmaghani are talented fighters, for sure, but they’re nowhere near our experience and they’ve nothing close to our power.
"They’re going to be eliminated, painfully, before their own fans. We don’t mess about, we’re not here to play.
"Believe me, the judges won’t be needed."
FANS OF AN EARLY FINISH
Between them, they boast 37 early knockouts in 60 starts combined so compassion is likely to be in short supply this Saturday night.
Twenty seven year old Freddie, elder by two years, gave white hot US talent ‘Jo Jo’ Diaz a hard night in a WBA Gold title fight this May.
Francisco has twice acquitted himself with credit in IBF world title fights, losing to the formidable US duo of Gervonta Davis and Tevin Farmer.
Prior to terrorising London’s East End in the 1960s, Ron and Reg proved pretty handy with their dukes themselves.
Introduced to the Noble Art by maternal grandfather Jimmy ‘Cannonball’ Lee, both fought on the fairground booths – once famously against each other – and both were decent amateurs.
Reg, older by 10 minutes, even netted a London schoolboy title.
In 1951, as 17 year olds, they turned pro together on a promotion in Mile End and were to fight on the same bill on six occasions.
Lightweight Reg, easily the more skilled, won seven straight while welter Ron lost twice in six – once by DQ – before their progress was scuppered by national service.
Watch Dilmaghani v Fonseca and Nevin v Fonseca exclusively live on Channel 5 this Saturday from 9pm.
