Reece McFadden aims to build on debut victory at Emirates Arena

RINGSIDE 20/03/2019

Reece McFadden sees the Emirates Arena as a happy hunting ground for him as he awaits his second professional fight there on Friday.

Former amateur star McFadden (1-0) fights in Glasgow live on iFL TV after his successful debut there in November, and he wants to keep his good run of success at the venue going.

McFadden said: “I had my debut at the Emirates Arena and also fought there several times as an amateur for titles at both senior and junior level, so it’s good to be back once again.

“I was pleased with my debut in November. He was a tough opponent and I don’t know how he wasn’t going down with the body shots I was sinking in, but I enjoyed it and I’m excited for my second fight.

“I have the same attitude as I did for my debut, I just continue to treat each fight as if it’s any other. I deal well with the pressure and I’m very good with the big occasion.

“The professional game has been very different to the amateur game. You have to be more composed and plant your feet to try and get your opponent out of there, and I’ll be trying to do that on Friday.”

It is a packed card in Glasgow live on iFL TV on Friday, which features Iain Butcher challenging Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title.

There are plenty of exciting stars taking to the ring too, including Kieran Smith, Lewis Benson, David Brophy, Michael McGurk, Jack Turner and many more.
