Glasgow’s Scott McCormack is all set for his trilogy fight with Shotts’ Scott Allan.
The fight which will take place on November 24 on the famous St Andrew’s Sporting Club show at Glasgow’s Radisson Hotel will see Allan’s Scottish title on the line and McCormack, a native of Glasgow’s Southside, will look to make it third time lucky against Allan and pick up the Scottish Bantamweight title.
‘Hot Shot’ McCormack who is now trained by ex pro Kris McAdam recently picked up a four round victory over the well-travelled Luke Fash on the undercard of Ricky Burns WBA World Super Lightweight title defence against Kiryl Relikh. McCormack opened up on how preparation had gone for his third encounter with Shotts’ Scott Allan.
“Preparation couldn’t possibly have gone better for this fight. I’ve got rounds under my belt on a big stage at the SSE Hydro and I’ve stayed in the gym since then.”
“I was delighted to get the call to fight Scott for the third time. I’d been preparing to fight anyway so when I got the call I was delighted.”
“Things have changed for myself since the last fight in a much more positive way. Kris and I have worked on a lot in the gym and I think that will be the difference come fight night.”
This will be the third contest Scott Allan and McCormack will be having. The first ended in a draw and Allan was victorious in the second over ten rounds for the Scottish title. McCormack spoke highly of his counterpart when asked about the difference he felt in the first fight and the second.
“Scott (Allan) had improved a lot in the second fight. I wasn’t myself that night but full credit to Scott for coming out victorious.”
“I’ve improved a lot since and I’m sure he has too but I am confident that I can notch up a victory and become Scottish Champion on November 24.”
There is an extra incentive for both Allan and McCormack on November 24 as the victor may be in line for a shot at the British or Commonwealth title not so distant in the future. McCormack gave his take on the possibilities of fighting for either of those prestigious titles.
“It drives you on more in training for this fight knowing that not just the Scottish title but the possibility of fighting for the British or Commonwealth title may not be so far away. It’s really exciting!”
November 24 will be screened live on STV all over Scotland. ‘Hot Shot’ weighed in on getting the opportunity to fight on STV.
“It’s a massive opportunity just being able to box on STV. There’s a massive audience that I can show my skills off too and that can only lead to bigger and better things down the line!”
Scott McCormack vs Scott Allan tops the November 24 St Andrew’s Sporting Club event which also features Kieran Smith and Gary Rae.
