Taylor McGoldrick on a mission to prove himself in 2021

Taylor McGoldrick [3(1)-1(1)] is itching to put a nightmare year out of the ring behind him and show people his true potential in 2021.

The Tyrone native hasn’t endured the greatest of times since suffering surprise defeat to Gennadi Stserbin in the summer of 2019.

Injuries, some personal issues and a pandemic have stopped him from competing and means he has yet to put that sole reverse behind him.

The defeat has weighed heavy on the southpaw, who feels he owes his fans a performance – and speaking to Irish-boxing.com he promised to repay them with some brilliant displays in 2021.

“I feel fit and eager to fight. I’m raring to go,” he told Irish-boxing.com.

“I feel like I’ve a lot to prove and I owe my fans a performance. I’m going to put on a great performance when I return. I am planning a masterclass to get people talking about me again.”

McGoldrick argues fans haven’t seen anywhere near his true potential, something he also wants to change over the coming months.

“I’ve had a bad year out of boxing. I took time to get my head ready to get back In shape for fighting. People haven’t seen 50% of what I can do and I am working to change that.”

The 26-year-old cousin of Conrad Cummings had been linked to some big domestic bouts early last year, but has fallen behind during his period out. He may have to string a few wins together to get back into the contention.
