McShane ready to excite and disappoint Hungarian fight fans Saturday

DANIEL McShane plans to excite a sold out Messzi István Sporthall out of their seats with his ring walk on Saturday night, before deflating them into a seated slump by beating their man.

The undefeated Belfast super featherweight travels to the Hungry to take on Ignac Kassai on a televised show this weekend. Not only has he brought his crowd pleasing and unique ring walk with him McShane has promised to raise the ring entrance anti come Saturday night.

However, McShane isn’t just eager to impress as he ventures into the ring and is confident he can catch the eye on a card deemed ‘massive’ in Hungry against a fighter he previously stopped.

“The ring walk will stay with me forever and I am going to take the ring walk to a different level over here in Hungary.,” McShane told Irish-boxing.com from Hungry.

“I know deep down I have the tools to beat this guy. I’m very confident, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I could win. I wouldn’t let my 0 go that easy,” he added before revealing he got a hero’s welcome when he arrived in Hungry.

” It is a massive occasion over here in Hungary, I’ve just arrived in my hotel and I feel like a celebrity. When we got off the plane they had the banners with my name and face on it! It is live on TV over here and it is a huge bill with four EU titles up for grabs.”

Considering he beat the Hungarian Champion Zoltan Kovacs and stopped Ignac it is surprising ‘Insane’ McShane has been so well received in Hungry, but his manager Mark Dunlop reveals the promoters were keen to get him on the card.

“The promoters heard big things of Daniel as he defeated their Hungarian Champion over eight tough rounds in Belfast last year. They wanted him on their show as he is very exciting. He will box Ignac Kassai again now as his original opponent pulled out. Kassai has won four of his last five since they last fought only losing to Olympian Zolt Bedalk their super bantamweight hope who tops the bill.”
