Prospect Boxing Looking To Deliver Knock-out Show on February 28th

With a mouthwatering Ten Fights scheduled for their next show on February 28th at the Ravenscraig Sports Facility, Prospect Boxing look to deliver a packed card which will do nothing but entertain the expected capacity crowd on the evening.

Headlined by Sanquhar’s Rhys Pagan, as he challenges Bulgarian Valentin Stoychev for the International Masters Title. Looking forward to challenging for his first title the 20 year old declares his excitement “It is good to see my career progress to me getting a title shot. I have had eight fights already and I see this as a definite progress. I have been working on stepping up the fitness to go the distance and I have also stepped up the sparring in the gym. I cant wait to have that belt round my waist.

Propping up the undercard, Jerviston’s Iain Butcher makes a welcome return to the ring after his impressive first round ko win in October last year. Looking to get his fighter into British title position, promoter Paul Graham explains the frustrations“It has been frustrating over the last few months as we are waiting on confirmation of a date for purse bids for Iain to fight for the British title. Iain as ever is the model professional and just keeps himself ticking over in the gym. We have brought over Valentin Marinov for this bout. Marinov has been in with both Luke Wilton and Ryan Doyle, so his experience at this weight should make the fight interesting.

Making the Journey from Aberdeen, Matthew “The Hawk” McAllister returns to action as he looks to make it eight straight wins. Expecting a Crowd pleasing performance, Graham explains why he rates the 25 year old “Every time I have seen Matthew (McAllister) take to the ring, he always entertains the fans. He has been boxing a long time, as both an amateur and a pro, and has learnt a lot in and around the gyms. He’s currently scheduled to fight William Warburton, and I know this time he is looking to go one better than the last time they fought and he picked up the points win.

After nearly a year out, Alloa’s Scott Edgar returns to take on Wishaws Kenny Davidson, who also returns after nearly two years out. A match that could go either way according to Graham “Well both have taken some time out recently, and both are looking to return with a win. Between them both they have had ten fights, so they are experienced enough to know how to pick up the win. I am looking forward to seeing this as its quite an evenly matched fight.

Another all Scottish attraction on the card, sees Uddingston’s Shaun McShane take on Glasgow’s Ryan Love, with both fighters making there pro debut on the evening however Paul Graham is not sure how to read the fight “Shaun is the older of the two fighters, but has got a bit more amateur experience over Ryan Love. Ryan is coming into this after a good amateur career that seen him make the Intermediate Championships finals last year. I do look forward to this but I do hope Love doesn’t look too much at him being the younger fighter, as experience can often outwit a lot of things in the ring.

In the Light Middleweight division, Motherwell’s Lee Gallagher also makes his debut, as he takes on Jason McArdle. Having signed Gallagher to his stable, former referee Graham expects big things of Gallagher “Lee has been training hard, and I look forward to seeing him progress. He has been in a tough camp with Jim Love and training with Mitch Prince I am excited to see what he can deliver in the ring. McArdle has had one fight, so its a good match up for Lee, like the a few of the other fights on the card its evenly matched on ability.

Also in action on February 28th, Stirling’s George Thomson looks to make it Four wins, as he competes in a Six round Welterweight fight. With One win and One draw so far in his career, Dundee based Davie Drummond returns to action as he takes on the more experienced Tzvetozar Iliev over four rounds.

Looking to build on a succesful career in kick boxing, Bellshill based JP McGuinness makes a much delayed debut. Happy to be finally making his paid debut, McGuinness is looking forward to getting between the ropes “I was suppose to make my debut at the last Prospect show in October, however we had a few problems which lead to me not fighting. I managed to get that sorted and I’m ready to get into the ring on February 28th. To prepare for this fight, I have been doing the usual training, including running through a graveyard.

After an impressive knockout of Matt Seawright on his debut last month, Glasgows Michael McGurk makes a quick return as he looks for a second straight knockout.

Impressed by his first fight, Promotor Graham cant wait to see him back in action “Matt Seawright is one of the best journeymen in the UK, so to get a ko victory over him is a great way to get started in the pro game. I hear he is bringing a good crowd through with him who will make themselves know, and if McGurk can continue his form it could be spectacular ending!

“Lock Stock and Twelve Smoking Fights” takes place at the Ravenscraig Sports Facility on Friday February 28th 2014.
