Boxing News roundup…

KO BOXING

  • Tyrone McKenna is looking for a new opponent after Tommy Coyle was forced to pull out of their much-anticipated bout on Oct 21st. Rumours are circulating that Phil Sutcliffe Jnr or Anto Upton could be potential opponents
  • Amir Khan has yet again stated he wants a massive UK bout with rival Kell Brook. Despite turning down lucrative offers from Eddie Hearn previously, Khan says that the time isn’t right just yet – ” If we get a couple of wins, I think it will be a massive fight. It will be a big fight now, but it will be a massive fight if we wait maybe another fight. One hundred per cent, I would love that fight. I’m only 30 years old. People forget how old I am. I’m at the peak of my career now.
  • Scott Quigg still aims to land a major title fight sooner rather than later. The Freddie Roach trained fighter  hopes to finally get n the ring with Santa Cruz or Mares – ” I believe they’re going to be fighting early March or some time in April, I’d love the winner of that. I want to be involved in big fights, like the big fight with (Carl) Frampton,” stated Quigg, who dropped a split decision to his arch rival in February of 2016 but has since notched two victories since his only career loss.”I came up short but I believe I’ve made massive improvements already, learned from that. Those are the fights I want to be involved in. Anybody who’s got a world title at 126, they are the fights I want to be involved in.”
  • Cuban amateur legend Guillermo Rigondeaux cant wait to finally get in the ring with fellow Olympic gold medallist Vasyl Lomachenko on Dec 9th in Madison square garden New York. Rigo knows that this could be his defining fight and finally give him the recognition he craves -“I’m thrilled to be part of this historic fight on ESPN because I’ve had my eye on fighting Vasyl Lomachenko for a long time,” said Rigondeaux. “I’m thankful that Roc Nation Sports and Top Rank made this fight happen and I can’t wait to make a statement on December 9 in New York City.  Weight classes don’t win fights – fighters do – and I look forward to delivering the best performance of my career, beating a fellow legendary Olympian in Lomachenko and solidifying my place as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of this era.”
