Crocker looking to set up step up 2020 with KO win

Lewis Crocker burst onto the scene with six straight knockout wins. He’s looking to add another to that collection on Friday.

Unbeaten Crocker [9(6)-0] is scheduled to take on Ohio Kain Iremiren [4-1-2] on a packed #MTKFightNight at the Ulster Hall in Belfast, live in the US on Top Rank and worldwide on iFL TV.

Big things are targeted for ‘The Croc’ in 2020, and he’s ready to put in another impressive display that sets him up nicely for an important year.

“Hopefully I can keep winning and these shows can keep coming back to Belfast. I’m looking forward to the future and once I’ve got this fight out of the way I’ll speak with MTK Global and see what they have planned for me.

“It’s humbling being on the same bill as some of these lads, and it will be my third time in the Ulster Hall and the atmosphere is always unbelievable.

“Training alongside the likes of Conrad Cummings and Steven Donnelly in the build up to this fight has been great. Conrad is on the bill on Friday too and Steven won Ultimate Boxxer recently, so it’s been a fantastic camp and sparring has gone great.”

A massive bill in Belfast on Friday also features a fantastic flyweight showdown between Jay Harris and Paddy Barnes, former world champion Terry Flanagan fighting Michael Ansah, unbeaten star Sean McComb taking on Emiliano Dominguez Rodriguez, elite Irish debutants Paddy Donovan and Pierce O’Leary and many more.
