Michael McGurk sets long-term goals, wants Ted Cheeseman

RINGSIDE 21/11/2018

Unbeaten former WBC world youth champion Michael McGurk has his heart set on a big 2019 and is out to make a statement in Glasgow on November 30.

The 25-year-old cruised to 11-0 on his return to action in October and stars again on a stacked MTK Global card at Emirates Arena – live on BoxNation – looking to accelerate a charge at British light-middleweight champion Ted Cheeseman.

McGurk said: “My ideal next 12 months involves a major title. I’d like the British or the Commonwealth and I’d love the Ted Cheeseman fight down the line.

“I’d not fought for a while before October so I’m not going to start calling everybody out but the Cheeseman fight is one I’d jump at if I got offered it. The Lonsdale belt is cracking.

“I’d fight anybody, to be honest. There’s nobody in the light-middleweight division who fazes me. There are lots of tough fights out there but those are the sort of fights I want.

“This is the game we’re in and it’s the serious challenges that get me excited. I can’t wait to be in big fights on big nights. I want to make sure I’m on these big shows and get folks leaving the arena talking about me.

“I aim to entertain folks and that’s what I’ll do in Glasgow. 

“If you provide entertainment while you’re winning then these title chances will come. I work hard and I’m not afraid to take opportunities. Hopefully some come my way soon.”
