Gianluca (Rio) di Caro – London

Sensational super flyweight prospect Michael Maguire’s much anticipated return to the ring has been brought forward and will now take place on the undercard of the Queensberry Promotions event, headlined by Lee Selby and John Simpson‘s British and Commonwealth title clash, at York Hall, Wednesday. Originally scheduled to take place in Liverpool on Friday, pits two amateur stars against each other as Maguire fights 2004 Olympian Najah Ali.

Michael Maguire relishing return to action this Wednesday

Former world amateur under-nineteen number one Maguire, who recently returned to training at the TRAD TKO Gym in Canning Town following a two year sabbatical from the sport, seemed unconcerned with the change of date and venue when he spoke earlier: “I don’t care where or when I fight, I’ve been training hard for it and can’t wait to get the first one over and done with.

“I’ve had some sparring with Martin Power and Charlie Hoy, I’m happy with myself, I’ve been doing six rounds easily now and want to do more rounds as I’m getting fitter and fitter.”

The 22 year old from Peterborough then went on to talk briefly on his decision to take a break and why he felt it was now time to return to the fray: “I think I turned over a bit soon and felt I needed a little time out. I feel I’ve come back at the right age. I’m training harder, feeling stronger and believe I can really go somewhere now.”

Michael Maguire versus Najah Ali features on the Francis and George Warren’s Queensberry promotions event, headlined by the British and Commonwealth featherweight title clash between Lee Selby and John Simpson, takes place at the York Hall in Bethnal Green, and is broadcast live on BoxNation (Sky platform Ch. 456 and Virgin 546), on Wednesday, December 14, 2011.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!
