Jack Turner excited ahead of professional bow on Nov 30

RINGSIDE 22/11/2018

The highly-rated Jack Turner is brimming with ambition as he prepares for his professional debut at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena on November 30.

Glasgow bantamweight Turner joins the paid ranks having excelled as an amateur; winning the Scottish title and claiming a British silver medal.

Kicking off with a slot on a huge MTK Global card – live on BoxNation – Turner is confident he’ll take to the spotlight like a duck to water having been honing his skills by sparring one of the headliners; Iain Butcher.

He said: “I’m more than ready for this. Training and the whole camp have been fantastic. I’m going to perform and I’m so eager to get going.

“The standard of sparring I’ve had has been phenomenal. I’ve been sparring Iain, who’s challenging Kash Farooq for the British title on the night. You can’t ask for much better sparring than that.

“It’s obviously a massive bill on which to be making my professional debut but I’ve no doubt I’ll be able to contain the nerves and focus on the task in hand.

“I’m just keen to get the job done and then sit back and watch the rest of the boxing. There are some fantastic fights on the night and I’m going to really enjoy watching them after mine is done.”

Joining Turner on a stacked card is Farooq vs. Butcher, Tyrone McKenna vs. Lewis Benson, Kieran Smith vs. Evaldas Korsakas plus David Brophy, Michael McGurk, fellow debutant Reece McFadden and more.
