Lewis Benson to feature on MTK’s March 22 Glasgow show

RINGSIDE 20/01/2019

Lewis Benson is among a host of popular Scottish fighters confirmed for the undercard of MTK Global’s fight night in Glasgow on March 22.

Benson (10-2-KO2) returns alongside the likes of David Brophy, Michael McGurk, Reece McFadden and Jack Turner and is looking to make a statement after a razor-thin points defeat to Tyrone McKenna last time out.

With the domestic super-lightweight scene continuing to flourish, Benson will be keen to push himself into the title mix having been on the wrong end of close decisions against both McKenna and Johnny Coyle.

Another man eager to secure a shot at a title this year is Caldercruix super-middleweight David Brophy (21-2-1-KO4), who is aiming to run up a quick-fire hat-trick of victories at the arena on the night.

Also returning to action is former WBC world youth champion McGurk (11-0-KO3), who fights for just the second time in over a year having finally overcome a frustrating run of injuries.

Motherwell’s two-time Commonwealth Games medallist Reece McFadden will bring his noisy army of support back to the venue that hosted the bantamweight’s debut in November, and the promising Turner will make his professional bow.

The fight night will be broadcast live on iFL TV.
