David Brophy sets sights on facing Zach Parker this year

RINGSIDE 20/03/2019

Scottish star David Brophy wants to face British super-middleweight champion Zach Parker next once he gets through his fight in Glasgow this week.

Former Commonwealth champion Brophy (21-2-1) returns to action live on iFL TV at the Emirates Arena on Friday, and he hopes a win there can lead to a showdown with Parker.

Brophy said: “I’m not one to usually call people out, but I really fancy a British title fight this year. I think me against Zach Parker is a good fight and it has all the ingredients to be an exciting one.

“I’ve been patient and don’t ask for much in this game, but I think titles are what I deserve. Hopefully I can get through this fight this week and then me and Parker can get it on.

“We saw Parker fight Darryl Williams in his last fight and personally I thought he should have lost, but credit to him for fighting on through the injury.

“That fight was in Scotland, and it would be great for a fight between me and Parker to be in Scotland too. I’m a popular guy here, so I think it makes sense for it to be here.”

This week’s show in Glasgow features Iain Butcher challenging Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title, while a number of exciting stars are also in action, including Kieran Smith, Lewis Benson, Michael McGurk, Reece McFadden, Jack Turner and many more.
