MGM Boxing Dinner Club: January 28 preview

Chris Glover 18/01/2016

On January 28th, MGM Promotions Scotland present their Burns Supper Event from the Crowne Plaza hotel in Glasgow. This will be the first installment of a Burns Supper event for MGM’s Boxing Dinner Club. 

As guests devour their four course meal and complementary drinks, they will be treated to a mouthwatering night of boxing, consisting of four contests of the highest quality.

Opening the show will be Livingston Lightweight Thomas Dickson (1-0) who made his debut on December’s show at Meadowbank Sports Centre in Edinburgh. The West Lothian native will look to continue to impress on January 28th as he looks to stay active in 2016, and with MGM shows booked in on a regular basis in 2016, the likable Lightweight will have plenty of opportunities to showcase his talent.

Joining Dickson will be rising Light Middleweight prospect Marc Kerr (3-0). Kerr is no stranger to the Crowne Plaza having boxed on the first MGM Boxing Dinner Club show last October. Kerr is in a thriving division in Britain and Ireland and the big punching Glasgow man will be looking to put on a devastating display on January 28th as he looks to move quickly into the domestic title picture.

Edinburgh’s Stephen Tiffney (2-0, 1KO) who’s fresh of sparring IBF Super Bantamweight Champion Carl Frampton will look to continue his impressive start to life in the paid ranks. ‘Tiff’ has produced two impressive displays in his opening two professional contests in Edinburgh and will be dead set on showing Glasgow’s boxing public his skills on the Burns Supper Event.

Topping the bill will be Cruiserweight contender Stephen Simmons (13-1, 6KO). Simmons is no stranger to British boxing fans after notching up high profile wins over Wadi Camacho, Michael Sweeney and David Graf. The 2010 Commonwealth games medalist is set for a title laid path in 2016 after already picking up the Celtic and WBC International titles. ‘Simbo’ will look to hit the ground running on January 28th with an impressive performance that will set the tone for the year to come; in what is set to be another excellent evening of entertainment presented by MGM.
