Kieran Smith, the man known as 'Chopper,' makes his return on Saturday when he defends his WBC International Silver title against fellow undefeated fighter Vincenzo Bevilacqua on a sold out #MTKFightNight at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.
The action is live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and live worldwide on IFL TV, with Smith (15-0, 7 KOs) looking for his third win of 2019 following victories over Ivan Montero and Jan Balog earlier this year.
Unbeaten Bevilacqua (16-0) is up next for Smith, and he hopes a win there leads to him being let off the leash and securing huge fights in 2020.
Smith said: "Fans can expect entertainment in this fight, and then in 2020 I’m ready for big title fights and I want to get right in the mix.
"First I need to take care of business on Saturday. I am fully focused on that fight and I'm looking forward to facing off against an opponent who is 16-0.
"It's definitely great to be back at the Emirates Arena too. It is a great venue and it’s growing every time, so it's going to be another fantastic occasion."
A huge sold out bill in Glasgow on Saturday features the massive showdown between Lee McGregor and Kash Farooq for the British and Commonwealth bantamweight titles, highly-rated prospects Pierce O’Leary and Paddy Donovan, local stars Tommy Philbin and Mark McKeown, plus many more.
