Iain Butcher is back in action on Friday – and has ambitions to have some big domestic showdowns in the near future if he is victorious.

Butcher (18-4) fights live on iFL TV at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, and if he comes through this week’s bout, Butcher wants to take on more of the best of British.

Butcher said: “Hopefully for myself it goes well on March 22 as then I can get back on the big domestic scene again and take part in some big fights as the bantamweight division is on fire at the moment.

“There are a lot of good boxers from all around the world who are competing at the weight, and there is the potential of some good domestic dust ups too.

“I’ve been keeping an eye on the rankings, and MTK Global have also got a few of the boys that are ranked higher than me, so those fights should be easy to make in the future.

“You never know what opportunities can come your way if you get on a winning streak, as you could then be seen highly ranked enough to be in there with a shout of a world title. Before I can even think of any of that, I need to put on a good performance on March 22.”

Butcher’s fight is part of a big card live on iFL TV in Glasgow, with exciting stars Kieran Smith, David Brophy, Michael McGurk, Lewis Benson, Reece McFadden and Jack Turner also in action.
