Fearghus Quinn relishing another dangerous opponent

Fearghus Quinn [1(0)-0] is delighted to see his test request granted again.

The Belleek fighter went straight into six round action and took on Robbie Chapman, a fighter with a winning record in his debut in August.

The all action southpaw follows up the relatively tough start with another early challenge as he faces Scott James [6(0)-6(2)-1] on Wednesday’s Golden Contract card.

‘Brick Top’ has six defeats to his name, but has won six times and comes into the clash on the back of two victories, albeit over journeymen.

‘The Mighty Quinn’ welcomes the chance to show his wares against noteworthy early days oppositions and to do so on a Sky Sports broadcast show is a bonus.

“I’m looking to be in tough fights which will test me and give me more experience. After being in with a good opponent in my debut, it’s good to have another one so I can keep building on previous fights,” said Quinn.

“I just want to be as active as possible and keep being put in with quality boxers. I’ll be in exciting fights and people will get to see what I’m about.

“It’s class to get out on such a big card too. MTK Global are putting on big shows and I’m glad to get the opportunity to go out and showcase my skills.”

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.
