Irish fighters announced for next MGM show

Tyrone McKenna and Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner will strut their stuff in sunny Spain later this month.

The MGM pair have been announced for the promotional company’s upcoming show in Spain on April 23rd.

Belfast welterweight McKenna [9(3)-0] signed to MGM earlier this year and will be making his debut for the Irish-owned outfit in what is his first fight since last Summer.

Entertaining Dublin heavweight Turner [7(5)-0] will be looking for another highlight-reel knockout as he aims to move up through the rounds and towards titles.

McKenna has recently being training at the Puerto Banús with Jamie Conlan, whilst Turner has been ticking over in Dublin the past few months.

The fight night follows on from the hugely succesfull ‘Lights Out at the Plaza’ show in Marbella last August which featured Turner, Matthew Macklin, Declan Geraghty, Ciaran Mullen, Ciaran McVarnock, and JJ Metcalf.

Ticket and opponent details will be announced over the weekend.
