Iain Butcher vs. Ukashir Farooq For British Title on Nov. 30

Iain Butcher will challenge Ukashir Farooq for the British title as the headline act of a stacked MTK Global show in Glasgow on November 30 – also featuring Tyrone McKenna vs. Lewis Benson and Kieran Smith vs. Peter McDonagh for a WBC world ranking title.
 
Emirates Arena will play host to a huge night of boxing, with the action streamed live and exclusively on BoxNation.
 
Popular Motherwell bantamweight Butcher (18-3-KO5) is handed his big chance to shine in a heated atmosphere with the TV cameras rolling and the British crown on the line.

In the unbeaten Farooq (10-0-KO4), ‘Baby Butch’ takes on a Glasgow resident determined to reward his own local following by defending the title he won by stopping Jamie Wilson in the same city in September.
 
The term ‘crossroads fight’ is bandied around regularly but the clash between McKenna and Benson is surely the dictionary definition after both suffered the first defeats of their professional careers at Belfast’s SSE Arena in June; losing close points decisions to Jack Catterall and Johnny Coyle respectively.
 
With the super-lightweight division abuzz both domestically and internationally, McKenna (16-1-1-KO6) and Benson (10-1-KO2) know victory here will propel them right back into contention for titles and lucrative fights.
 
Another worthy support act is the intriguing WBC International Silver light-middleweight title showdown between the up-and-coming Smith (11-0-KO5) and the vastly experienced McDonagh (28-28-2-KO3).
 
‘Chopper’ Smith is considered one of Scotland’s most promising fighters but against the veteran McDonagh, he faces a stern examination of his credentials from a visitor hell-bent on forcing a late-career shot at a major title himself.
 
A busy undercard will be announced in due course.
