MGM 08/06/2015

A new, exciting era dawns on Scottish boxing as the inaugural MGM Promotions takes place on Friday night at the Bellahouston Sports Centre, Glasgow headlined by rising Super Middleweight David Brophy.

This is the first pro show for MGM Promotions based in Glasgow and the first for promoter Sam Kynoch who will be previewing the Friday show soon.

The debut MGM card is headlined by recent addition to the MGM stable, undefeated Airdrie man David Brophy. Brophy who works under the guidance of Billy Nelson is looking to secure a British or Commonwealth title shot in the coming months. Brophy who those around him consider himself a model pro has been sparring the likes of Callum Johnson and Paul Smith ahead of the show has built up a big following in the Glasgow area and is eager to impress his hometown supporters on Friday night.

The card features the return of highly rated 11-2 Lochend Light Middleweight John Thain who looks to get back to winning ways and put himself in the British title picture come the end of the calendar year. With the MGM looking on putting on shows in Edinburgh, doors will definitely open for the undoubtedly talented Thain. After losing close decisions to Ronnie Heffron and Kris Carslaw which many could argue Thain won, he will be launching a charge on the domestic scene this year on home turf.

Friday night also see’s eagerly the debut of Scotland’s Commonwealth games representative Ross Henderson. The big man who represented Scotland at Super Heavyweight at last years Commonwealth’s in Glasgow will be looking to impress in front of his hometown crowd. Roscoe will be looking to impress and the thought of a big Scottish bout with Gary Cornish is will be noted from day one of Ross’ career. The Ross Henderson journey will definitely be one not to miss as he enters a ever growing division in Britain that includes the likes of Anthony Joshua, David Price, Tyson & Hughie Fury amongst other big names.

MGM Scotland’s very own Marc Kerr makes his debut on the show. Kerr who has been with trainer and promoter Sam Kynoch from scratch will be dipping his toes into the pro game for the first time to mark a new chapter in an already great story for the pair.

The card also features MGM Scotland’s 4-0 Welterweight Gary Murray. Gordon Brennan, 3-3-1, makes his return to boxing after a 6 year lay off from the pro game. The card is made up by Edinburgh Middleweight Brian Forsyth who also makes his debut.

Ticket can still be purchased from the MGM Scotland gym on Portman Street in Glasgow for Friday night’s event which many see as a breath of fresh air that many would say is well and truly needed on the Scottish boxing scene.
