McIntosh Vows To Make 'One Destruction' at a Time

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

MUSIC lover Danny McIntosh is planning to hit all the right notes to become British champion.

The Norwich light-heavyweight, 34, takes on Travis Dickinson in the quarter-final of the exciting new MaxiNutrition Knockout tournament tomorrow night.

The winner of the eight-man competition will come out with the British crown currently held by Bob Ajisafe who beat Dean Francis last week in his quarter-final.

Former European champion McIntosh has vowed to thrill fans when he takes on Dickinson this weekend in Sheffield on his way to landing the famous Lonsdale belt.

He said: “Watch out, just watch out is all I can say. You're going to see a big show on Saturday.

“I'm not going to try and scare-monger anyone, at the end of the day they're going to see what's going to happen when I get in the ring and we'll see how many of them come out of the first round.

“Every time you get into that ring you're at risk of getting hurt so I'm not taking anyone lightly.

“One fighter at a time, one destruction at a time.”

The light-heavyweight puncher may come across as a man who means business inside the ring.

But when he is not knocking out opponents, McIntosh spends his time using his hands for something a bit different.

He said: “I play the guitar and the piano, mainly classical, my favourite to play is Moonlight Sonata.

“On the guitar I play Spanish and acoustic, but I mainly jam rather than play anything in particular.”

After a rollercoaster career that includes five defeats, McIntosh insists this new tournament is just what he needs.

The Norwich man has not fought since competing in the cruiserweight Prizefighter in May 2013 – where he lost to Hari Miles in the last four.

His time in the ring looked over after three defeats on the trot in 2011 and 2012, but he is planning to bounce back in the twilight of his career.

He added: “It would mean everything to win this competition, boxing is all about winning and I'm here to win.

“I'm not here to play games, I'm here to win the whole thing.

“I want to be fighting regular and in this tournament I know the fights are there and I know they can happen.”

The MaxiNutrition second quarter-finals are live on Channel 5 on Saturday from 21.30 followed by Kid Galahad’s European title challenge against Sergio Prado.

I'd love to see McIntosh fight that Apple guy.
