Craig Bunn bids for fresh start in 2019 ahead of March return

RINGSIDE 24/01/2019

Craig Bunn is looking to put a difficult year behind him when he makes his return to the ring in March.

Bunn (9-1-2) fights on an MTK Global show at Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on March 15, streamed live on iFL TV.

He heads into that bout after a draw and a loss in his last two contests. Issues in his personal life affected him during those fights, something which thankfully he is now over.

Bunn said: “My last two fights were terrible, but I had a lot of personal problems outside of the ring. I definitely feel in a better place now so things are looking up.

“I’m not using that as an excuse. I still went into those fights and the better men won, but I’m in a good place mentally now and I can’t wait to get back in there.

“I’ve managed to overcome those issues that I had outside of boxing so I feel like I’ve won already.  I think my last two fights may have been a blessing in disguise. I’ve been ticking over in the gym since my last fight and I’m confident we’ll see the best of me moving forward.

“Age is just a number. I look after myself outside of the ring and I truly believe I can win a British title in my career. I’m fighting at super-middleweight now so I’m going to give it 100 per cent and I’ll see how far I can go.”

There are several other local prospects on the bill in March, including Ben Sheedy, Macaulay McGowan and Mike McGoldrick.
