Kilsyth fighter Monty Ogilvie will aim to make it seven wins out of seven as a pro when he takes on England’s Joe Ducker at Paisley Lagoon Centre on Saturday night.
The 26-year-old, who trains at the Golden Gloves gym, is hoping for a Scottish title shot later in the year.
And promoter Sam Kynoch of MTK Scotland thinks Ducker - who previously fought Ogilvie’s former Golden Gloves stablemate Stevie Beattie, now retired - will provide just the kind of test he needs.
Kynoch said: “Ducker has boxed some good names and scored quite a few upset wins, so it’s a definite step up for Monty.
“He’s a very aggressive opponent who has boxed on big bills so he presents quite a significant challenge, so it’s going to be far from straightforward. But I think it’s what Monty needs at this stage.
“But he’s happy with his preparations. He’s had a lot of sparring at the right level and just needs to put it into practice on fight night.”
