Unbeaten light-middleweight Michael McGurk is determined to hit the ground running at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Saturday night.
The 24-year-old Scot has overcome a broken hand and fights for the first time this year on the World Boxing Super Series card headlined by Josh Taylor vs. Ryan Martin and Ryan Burnett vs. Nonito Donaire – live on DAZN.
Having already won the WBC world youth title in 2017, McGurk is eager to start making his mark again.
McGurk said: “I can’t wait. It’s been a long year out of the ring and a bit of a nightmare but it’s good to be back on such a big card. It should be a good night and hopefully a victory for myself.
“I’m very mentally strong and relaxed so I don’t get hyped up or annoyed about much. I’ve been training hard and in the gym even when I had a broken hand. It’s just one of those things that happens in boxing.
“I’m looking forward to this with the likes of Josh Taylor headlining. It’ll be my second time on one of his undercards and I scored a stoppage in the first round the first time. I’m looking forward to putting on another performance for everybody.
“Scottish boxing is looking great at the moment. You’ve got a lot of up and coming talent who’ll soon be pushing for titles. In the coming months, I think we’ll see a big rise in Scottish boxing with plenty of titles and lots of big nights like Saturday.”
Joining McGurk on a stacked bill are MTK Global team-mates Kieran Smith, Siar Ozgul – who fights former world champion Viktor Postol – plus Stephen Tiffney and Troy James.
