Michael McGurk keen to build on comeback triumph

RINGSIDE 07/02/2019

Highly-rated Scottish super-welterweight Michael McGurk (11-0-KO3) is determined to shine on the MTK Global show in Glasgow on March 22 – live on iFL TV.

The former WBC world youth champion ended a year out of the ring in November with a clinical victory and with the ring rust now gone, he’s keen to prove himself one of the best 154lb fighters in the UK.

McGurk said: “I really enjoyed getting back in the swing of things at the back end of last year but I know I can improve massively on that performance.

“This time around, I’ll be sharper, more powerful and generally better so the fans who show up will be getting their money’s worth.

“I’ve really been enjoying my sparring and my training and I’m looking forward to putting on a good performance at the Emirates Arena, which has already become a key venue for Scottish boxing.

“After the past couple of years I’ve had – involving lots of frustration, I’m just dying to get out and fight more regularly to make some serious statements to the rest of the division.”

Joining Uddingston’s McGurk on a busy night of boxing are MTK Global team-mates Kieran Smith, who defends his WBC ranking title against Adam Harper and Iain Butcher, who challenges Scott Allan for the BBBofC Celtic bantamweight title.

Also on the show are other local talents such as Lewis Benson, David Brophy, Reece McFadden and Jack Turner.
