Kieran Smith pushing for Top 15 World Ranking

RINGSIDE 18/03/2019

Kieran Smith has set his sights on breaking into the top 15 world rankings once he’s made his return to the ring at the Emirates Arena on Friday.

Unbeaten Smith (13-0) is back in action on a packed card in Glasgow as #MTKFightNight return to Scotland live on iFL TV.

He already holds the WBC International Silver title, and he would love to add the full version of the belt to his collection to earn himself a top 15 ranking with the WBC.

Smith said: “I want to keep pushing up the WBC rankings and hopefully fight for the WBC International belt next. That will put me in the top 15 of the rankings.

“It’s good to be getting back in the ring. Since I signed up with MTK Global and teamed up with Danny Vaughan last year, I was promised to be kept busy and they came through with that. I had three fights in three months which was great.

“I picked up the WBC International Silver belt as well which was the icing on the cake for the end of the year, and it’s now setting me up for a good 2019.”

It’s a packed card live on iFL TV in Glasgow on Friday, also featuring Iain Butcher challenging Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title.

The undercard is full of talented stars too, including David Brophy, Michael McGurk, Lewis Benson, Reece McFadden, Jack Turner and many more.
