Fearghus Quinn handed Golden opportunity

Fearghus Quinn [1-0] has been handed another relatively testing clash as he returns on the Golden Contract card set for Wednesday December 2.

The Belleek southpaw entertained over six against tough debut opposition in Robbie Chapman in August and appears before Christmas on a high profile TV card against similar level of opposition.

The all action middleweight trades leather with England’s Scott James [6-6-1] on a Sky Sport broadcast card.

James has shared the ring with the likes of Lewis Crocker, Liam Wells and Hamzah Sheereaz and he comes into the clash on the back of victories over more traditional journey men Liam Griffiths and Paul Cummings.

Quinn said: “I’m delighted to get out again so soon. I know with there being fewer fights on shows it’s hard to get everyone out, so I’m glad to have another fight in before the end of the year.

“I was very happy with how my debut went. It was a new experience and a strange one with no crowd and having to isolate, so I was pleased to go out and put on a good performance and have something to build off.

“I don’t know a whole lot about Scott James, I’ve just seen a few clips on YouTube. He seems like a tough, strong opponent and comes forward, so it should be a good fight.”

MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton added: “We’re excited to have Fearghus Quinn back on next month’s Golden Contract show. He was extremely impressive in his professional debut against Robbie Chapman, and now has another tough test by facing Scott James.

“It looks set to be a fantastic Golden Contract event with some brilliant fights on the card, so fans are in for a treat on Wednesday 2 December.”

Elsewhere on the show, Jazza Dickens takes on Ryan Walsh in the Golden Contract featherweight final, Ricards Bolotniks faces Serge Michel in the light-heavyweight final, Danny Dignum meets Gino Kanters, Daniel Egbunike goes up against Harlem Eubank, Adam Azim makes his professional debut against Ed Harrison, and Hassan Azim makes his debut too.
