Vianello comes into the bout as the bigger name, but also looking to get his career back on track. He won his first seven bouts via stoppage in the first three rounds of each bout. However, he then fought Kingsley Ibeh to an unexpected majority draw after coming into the bout as the favorite. He has since won two fights via TKO and is 9-0-1 heading into this bout.
McFarlane is 13-6 and very much a journeyman who can provide Vianello with some rounds. McFarlane is coming off a points win a month ago in a six-round bout against Chris Healey. Prior to that he suffered a seventh-round RKO loss to Nick Campbell in a bout with the BBBofC Scottish Area heavyweight title.
