Liam Conroy Returns With British Title Tilt in Mind
Former English light-heavyweight champion Liam Conroy is looking to resume his swift rise on returning from injury this Friday.
The Barrovian was last seen in March halting Miles Shinkwin inside two rounds in Preston and has since overcome a hernia problem to feature on the MTK Global show at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse – live on iFL TV.
As he prepares to bid for a sixth straight stoppage win, Conroy is thinking of stepping up to British level at the first available opportunity.
Conroy (16-3-1-KO8) said: “I’m really glad to be back to it. This has been the longest spell of inactivity I’ve ever had and I was gaining some momentum before it. Hopefully I can pick up where I left off.
“They’re might be some ring rust. We’ll see. I think a nice break and some time to reassess might actually have done me good. I’m going to change a few things around and I plan on being an even better version of myself.
“My goal is just to win my next fight, obviously. As for regaining the English title, I feel like I’ve established myself at that level and I’m ready to move on from there once I’m back in the swing of things. The British title is what I want now.
“I’m emotionless when I fight so I won’t be unleashing any frustration. I’ll simply aim to be better each time and of course, I’m looking to continue my streak of stoppage wins.”
Joining Conroy on the card are MTK Global team-mates Brian Rose, Mike McGoldrick, Ben Sheedy and Craig Bunn plus the world-class Savannah Marshall.
