World-ranked Michael McKinson Aims to Become a Household Name
World-ranked welterweight Michael McKinson has vowed to secure fame and glory ahead of facing Ryan Kelly in Brentwood on March 9.
‘The Problem’ (15-0) makes the second defence of his WBC International Silver title on the MTK Global show – live on iFL TV – against the dangerous Kelly (13-1-KO7) and is determined to put on another stellar performance.
McKinson said: “One of the goals is to become a regular TV fighter and box big names. I want to put myself in the mix to be a household name in the sport.
“I’m improving with each fight and with each day in the gym. My potential is massive so as long as I keep on the right path, I’ll keep getting better and climbing the rankings.
I want all of the big names and I’m confident that it’s only a matter of time until I get them. I’ll fight all of them and I’ll take them all down one by one.
“The Michael McKinson fan club is already growing. I’ve had a lot more attention and people getting behind me, asking me when my next fight is going to be.
“Hopefully, I’ll get a number of people down to Brentwood to support me when I fight Kelly and we’ll all have a good night.”
Alongside McKinson vs. Kelly on the bill is Mikey Sakyi vs. Idris Hill for the Southern Area title plus the likes of Shaquille Day, DP Carr and many more.
