McGoldrick ready to prove he is Taylor made for the big stage

Taylor McGoldrick [1(0)-0] is predicting an explosive and exciting showing for fight fans when he returns to the ring on June 30th.
The 24-year-old super middleweight fights for just the second time as a pro on a brilliant Michael Conlan Homecoming undercard.

The Gerard McManus-trained fighter only had four weeks preparation for his pro debut, which played out in the Devenish last December, but has had a full camp to prepare for his next showing, which takes place in the SSE Odyssey Arena.

As a result the Co Tyrone fighter is expecting a more powerful and eye catching display, more impressive than his 39-37 debut win over the tough Michal Ciach.

“I ended up going to Marbella last summer and decided to go professional,” he said when speaking to Belfast Live. 

“I only had four weeks’ conditioning before my pro debut. It was a real slog getting ready in that short amount of time. But I had the opportunity to fight and I went with it.”

“I won the fight but I know I can do much better. With a proper camp behind me I will be a completely different boxer. My style suits the professional game and I am a power puncher.”

“So I am predicting an exciting and explosive fight for fans on June 30th, and one that will see me record an impressive win.”

While a lengthier camp may help Conrad Cummings’s cousin in terms of producing an eye catching performance, McGoldrick is aware a fight on such a massive card gives him the chance to catch more eyes and win some new fans.

“I can’t wait for June 30th. I am delighted to be on the card,” he added.

“It is a massive opportunity for me and one I intend taking.”

The former Holy Trinity amateur has been in camp alongside Paddy Gallagher, who competes in one of a number of potentially exciting undercard clashes on the night, and revealed working alongside ‘The Pat Man’ has proved helpful.

“Paddy is brilliant to work with. Just watching the way he trains and prepares for fights, it is all education for me. It is great that we’re both on this June 30th card. Training together certainly makes the process a lot easier, and we both aim to impress on the night.”
