Prospect Boxing announce June 1st show and the signing of former amateur champion Martin McCord

After our show in February at the Wishaw Sports Centre, Prospect Boxing are pleased to confirm that we are running our second show of 2012. Our next professional show will be on the 1st of June at the Rivals Gym,Newmains,Wishaw.

This is our first show at the Rivals Gym,and we are pleased to be bringing professional boxing to a venue for the first time. The card has 5 scheduled bouts featuring the Prince of Passion (Mitch Prince),Mark Bett,Iain Butcher and Giuseppe Daprato.

Completing the line up,and making his Prospect debut is Martin McCord. The Ayr based fighter had a accomplished amateur career winning the West of Scotland district championships 3 times and the Scottish championships 2 times.

“I’m really looking forward to making the next step up ” Explains McCord “I know it’s a harder game but I am looking forward to the challenge, I know you get hurt more at pro level and but can hurt people more aswell!”

He adds “I cant wait to make my pro debut, it will be a special night for me. It will be good for all my friends to come see my first pro appearance and when i am in there I am going to entertain and give the crowd a debut they wont want to forget”

Looking to help him through his pro career will be a familiar face “I am sticking with my amateur trainer Sam Mullen, I have been with him since I started boxing at the age of 10. He really is a brilliant coach and pushes you to your limit in every training session”

With his corner sorted, the Ayr fighter confesses he will be looking to change a few things “My training will adapt as I am training more frequently and putting a lot more effort as I know it’s not just like the amateur’s were you ‘tip tap and run away’. There will be more harder sparring, more roadwork and more conditioning. But its all worth it in the end when the ref lifts your hand as the winner!”

Tickets for the June 1st show at Rivals Gym ,53 Roberts Street,Wishaw are available from the fighters directly or by contacting 01698 338 888 and are priced £30. Further information is available from www.prospectboxing.co.uk or on twitter @ProspectBoxing and via www.facebook.com/ProspectBoxing
