Legendary British boxer Glenn McCrory has began his first training camp with Derry amateur star Sean McGlinchey.
McGlinchey put pen to paper on a pro deal with young promoter Kieran Farrell and will make his debut, as chief support, on Saturday April 22nd at the Devenish Complex in Belfast.
The super middleweight has started camp for his debut and has none other than former IBF cruiserweight world champion McCrory, who has Tyrone roots, in his corner.
McGlinchey won Commonwealth bronze in 2014 and had long hoped to turn pro, growing disillusioned with a lack of offers before the arrival of Farrell and McCrory.
McCrory commented on how Mummy’s Bhoy is the “best fighter I could have to bring me back to Ireland!
The pair have started working together in the remote village of Culdaff in Inishowen, Donegal ahead of the debut date and McGlinchey will no doubt benefit from McCrory’s experience and knowledge.
Feargal McCrory tops the bill in Belfast, with further undercard support from Daniel McShane, Mathew Fitzsimons, Joe Hillerby, Sean Magee, and a fight between Ger Healy and Tommy Carter
Tickets for ‘A New Era’ are available from the boxers involved on the bill at the following prices: £20 (standing), £35 (unreserved seating), and £50 (reserved seating).
