Paddy Donovan: I expect to be world class every time I fight
Wed, 17 Feb 2021
Paddy Donovan is continuing to set himself some huge standards as he prepares to return to the ring against Siar Ozgul on this Friday's huge #MTKFightNight.
Irish star Donovan (5-0, 3 KOs) faces another step up as he takes on former Southern Area champion Ozugl (15-5, 3 KOs) at the University of Bolton Stadium on Friday, live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV.
In his last outing, Donovan picked up an impressive win over Jumanne Camero, and the 22-year-old is now promising another performance to remember against Ozgul.
Donovan said: "I'm very excited to be back in action as I look to get my sixth win under my belt. I want to have a busy 2021 and I want to stay active.
"In my last fight it was nice to get a victory in a step up against Jumanne Camero, he's a tough fighter and I think I handled him well. I know what I can do in a boxing ring, and it was good to show those skills against a good opponent.
"I've got another tough test this week, and I have a job to do. When I overcome this challenge hopefully in one or two fights I can have a title shot of some sort.
"I want people talking about me and keeping my name in their mouth, I can only achieve that by showing my performances in the ring. I expect to be world class every time I fight and nothing less."
Elsewhere on Friday’s huge card, Sean McComb and Gavin Gwynne meet for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title, Darren Tetley faces Samuel Antwi for the vacant English welterweight title, DP Carr defends his Southern Area super-featherweight title against Dean Dodge, Pierce O’Leary fights Irvin Magno, Mark McKeown takes on Brad Daws, Elliot Whale goes up against Jamie Stewart, and Mohammed Sameer is back in action.
