Michael McKinson pushing towards the major names at welterweight

RINGSIDE 21/02/2019

World-ranked Michael McKinson realises he may be forced to call out the welterweight’s divisions big names as he continues his march to world titles.

‘The Problem’ has already raced to a record of 15-0 and defends his WBC International Silver crown against the dangerous Ryan Kelly on the MTK Global show in Brentwood on March 9 – live on iFL TV.

With his previous call-outs of the likes of Conor Benn met with silence, McKinson is happy to continue sending messages both with words and fists.

McKinson said: “The only way to get these big fights is start using my mouth and start calling these big names out. That’s the only way to get noticed!

“I’ve been stepped up a few times and all that’s happened is that I’ve looked better and better. 

“My potential is massive and fighting Sam McNess last time out was supposed to be a big step up. I made it look relatively easy. I don’t believe I lost a round – it was one-sided. 

“I’m still young and I’ve a lot of improving to do.I signed with MTK Global at the beginning of the summer knowing how many doors they can open for me and we’re getting there. 

“Even at MTK Global, they’ve got lots of welterweights so fights are there to be made and now you’ve got the iFL TV streams which are free to watch. These are exciting times.”

McKinson is joined on a stellar card in Essex by Mikey Sakyi, who defends his Southern Area title against Idris Hill plus the likes of Stephen Ormond, Danny Dignum, Daniel Egbunike, Shaquille Day and many more on a huge undercard.
