‘One more bash’ – big ‘Big Sexy’ comeback on the cards

Sean Turner [12(8)-3(1) is back AGAIN.

The heavyweight renowned for being as frustrating as he is entertaining claims he will give boxing ‘one more bash’.

The 29-year-old returns to training tomorrow alongside those working outdoors under Pete Taylor in the Lawns in Ballyfermot.

Speaking on social media the Shankill talent claimed he would be fit and ready to go once boxing resumes.

“This Monday I start again.. 29 years young. I am going to give the heavyweight scene on more bash. Anyone looking to match me with a heavyweight get in touch.”

The former National Elite champion has promised second dawns on more than one occasion only for the sun to remain set on his career.

There have been plenty who have bemoaned the big fighters lack of dedication and approach in recent years. Indeed, the fighter himself has been quite honest about how he lost focus on after two big 2018 pay-days.

With more money than he had ever seen in his pocket, fun had became more important than fighting. A bulging bank bank balance led to a party lifestyle and a bulging waist line for a fighter who has often spoken about commitment issues.

“Look I had too much money,” he told Irish-boxing.com earlier this year. “Way too much money in my pocket. I was partying, treating myself, enjoying myself.”

Post that promise to come back strong, a fighter, who has the ability and marketability to forge a career in a booming division, Turner moved to Bolton to work with Peter Fury.

He never fought under the renowned English trainer, returned home and looked set for a breakthrough chance in Ultimate Boxer.

However, despite being announced in the competition that served Steven Donnelly so well and promising to win the three fight contest via three knockouts, Turner ultimately didn’t compete.

‘Big Sexy’ now hasn’t been seen in the ring since he lost to Nathan Gorman in June of 2018.

He begins training again under the coach that oversaw what was meant to be a game changing win over Arnold Gjergjaj, Pete Taylor and will be hoping to be out before 2020.

The fear would be, that as an attractive looking away fighter, Turner may take the first pay day that comes his way. While he could forge a lucrative career as lucrative gatekeeper style foe Irish fight fans would love to see him try and work his way to a big shot and enter the fight with winning in mind.
