“Its no secret we’ve had a few changes to the line up, but in some cases this has definitely worked to the shows favour as we have ended up with more entertaining fights. I have been involved in a few shows now, so I am definitely getting used to the merry-go-round that is promoting"
Making his professional debut is Ayr's Martin McCord, who takes on Dundee's Mike Towell over six rounds. After a few non starts the promoter is looking to forward to see McCord get in the ring
“Martin has been raring to go for a while. He has had a few offers to fight away and has taken them only for the show to be cancelled at late notice, so its good to be able to get him out and fighting."
With a points loss in his last outing, Wishaw's Mark Parvin will be looking to get back to winning ways as he takes on Cumbria’s Martyn King in a six round contest. With a full training camp under his belt, Parvin is looking to write the wrongs of his loss:
“I have studied the fight and been working on making improvements to ensure I am the winner. I have seen a little bit of Martyn King and he’s durable. So he’s perfect comeback for me."
Hoping to stretch his unbeaten run to three fights, Fauldhouse's Sean Watson takes on Manchester's Abdul Rashid over 4 rounds. Rashid replaces Michael Stupart, but the former professional referee expects a tough nights work:
“I picked Rashid as he has never actually been stopped in a fight. Sean had a few personal problems which lead to us having to reschedule the date, but he has thrown himself into his training and is telling he cant wait to get in the ring on June 28th."
Completing the line up is Sanquhar's Rhys Pagan, who takes on the undefeated Manchester fighter Sam Omidi. Pagan's promoter is happy he has delivered the fight:
“I have every faith in Rhys and expect him to come through this. For his fifth fight I think this is a cracker and it should be a good test for him."
The crowd can also expect live music and comedy from comedian Gus Lymburn, and a raffle/auction in aid of local charity 'Mason Mission'.
