Iain Butcher aiming for Emirates Arena redemption

RINGSIDE 14/03/2019

Iain Butcher is looking to right the wrongs from his last fight at the Emirates Arena when he returns there next week to challenge Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title.

Butcher (18-4) is in action at the Emirates Arena again a few months after fighting for the British bantamweight title at the same venue, and he plans on making amends for his last contest.

He said: “It’s great to be back at the Emirates Arena, and I’m hoping to overcome the loss from last time and right the wrongs. I’m confident of getting a big win this time and we’ll see why on the night.

“The fight is live on iFL TV and hopefully a lot of people tune in to see a great show. It’s good to be on these packed cards, and since MTK Global have started expanding and signing big deals, it’s helped to give the boxers some brilliant exposure.”

“Camp has been running very smoothly and I’ve been putting in the hard graft needed. I’ve been working on key things we need for the fight, and my fitness and technique is all up to scratch.”

Butcher’s showdown with Allan isn’t the only title fight on the bill in Glasgow, as Kieran Smith defends his WBC International Silver super-welterweight belt against Adam Harper.

There is also a packed undercard, featuring David Brophy, Michael McGurk, Lewis Benson, Reece McFadden, Jack Turner and many more.
