Gearoid Clancy is determined to return to winning ways this weekend and bounce back from his Australian title defeat in style.
Clancy (9-6-KO2) was halted by Steve Spark due to a bad cut back in August but with the injury healed, the Irish-born super-lightweight is ready to make an example of Luke Howlett in Eveleigh on Saturday.
Clancy said: “Luke is not to be taken lightly because he really comes to fight but I know the importance of getting back to winning ways here.
“It’s my first one back since that bad cut in the Australian title fight so I’m just looking forward to getting back in there and doing what needs to be done.
“Hopefully we’ll secure the win on Saturday night and then we can push for bigger fights. That being said, to me, the most important fight of my career is simply the next one.
“There is no scope for slip-ups here and I’m fully tuned up after a great camp. As usual, we’ve left no stone unturned in the gym and hopefully that’ll show on the night.
“I can’t wait to go in there and get the win.”
Clancy is trained by renowned Australian trainer Tony Del Vecchio and is a gym-mate of the likes of Darragh Foley, Mateo Tapia and Mickey Pengue.
