Belfast's Sean McComb is looking forward to showing the world what he can produce in the lightweight division when he faces Gavin Gwynne for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title on Friday’s MTK Fight Night. McComb (11-0, 5 KOs) faces Welshman Gwynne (12-2, 2 KOs) at the University of Bolton Stadium on Friday – live in the US on ESPN+ and worldwide on IFL TV. It sees the Belfast man drop down in weigh to 135 pounds, and he’s excited to show everybody what he is capable of in his new division.
McComb said: “Lightweight is the most talked about weight at the moment. It’s like the 80s with the middleweights. MTK Global are providing me with chance after chance and now I’m heading to lightweight too. Some people may not know about me yet, but that will change in a matter of months, trust me. I’m delighted to be fighting for my first title, and I feel it’s been a long time coming. I do feel a lot of opponents were avoiding me because I didn’t have a belt, so now when I win this they can’t use that excuse. After a win here I’d love to go down the European route, and then onto world level by the end of the year. 2021 is going to be a big year and then it will set up a massive 2022.”
