“I’ve been chatting to my manager Daniel we are hoping to be on three more shows in Dublin an overseas before Christmas. The plan is to wrack up some more wins. This is my last four rounder, then it’s a step up to six and eight rounders. I’ve an Irish title in my sights.”

Maguire takes on former Steve Collins and Tommy McCarthy foe xx on Friday and predicts it will indeed be lights out at the Plaza.

“I predict a win for myself the weekend. I will be looking for the knockout if it pops up I’ll be straight in for the kill, It will be nice to get an early nights work done!”
