The Belfast lightweight had spoken of his intention to be contesting domestic titles within a year of turning over and this remains the plan for ‘The Public Nuisance’ who is promising that his rivals will soon be in for a spot of bother.
The 26-year-old new to the game pro has come out of the blocks firing stopping Reynaldo Mora at Windsor Park last month and a go-the-distance specialist in Lesther Cantillano in Birmingham last weekend.
It’s beyond impressive from the Turf Lodge southpaw and a start that has both caught the eye and given McComb a confidence boost.
Indeed, after reflecting on the two wins, the European Games bronze medallist feels he is a match for any at the weight domestically.
“Two wins and two knockouts, you can’t get much better than that, so I feel I’m progressing very well and it’s not just in the fights but my sparring as well. I’m in there with guys who have had a lot more fights than me and handling them no problem,” McComb told David Kelly of the Belfast Telegraph.
“That gives me the belief that I’m a match for anyone in Britain,” he added before stressing there are still some traditional steps to be taken before taking a massive step up.
“It’s just a case of learning my trade and getting the experience I need over six, eight and 10 rounds. I’m hoping that I’ll have a couple of six rounders before Christmas and then push on to eight and 10 rounds and title fights next year.”
“I can see how important it is to pace yourself in the pro game, it’s not like the amateurs when everything is a hundred miles an hour. I’m learning to do that, I’m already sparring six rounds at a good pace.”
McComb returns to the ring on Friday October 5th at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in his home city as he continues his quick climb.
The British title is vacant at present with Lewis Ritson having vacating it after winning the belt outright versus Belfast’s Paul Hyland Jr. The Lagmore man is a leading contender to contest the belt again in a domestic division which also includes the likes of former champs Scotty Cardle and Robbie Barrett, Atif Shafiq, and McComb’s fellow former amateur star and current Commonwealth champ Joe Cordina.
