Amidst the clamor for the main event between Hughie Fury and Joseph Parker on Saturday at the Manchester Arena, a potential fire cracker lies in wait. An intriguing encounter between two strong willed men with different motivations. Shayne Singleton and Peter McDonagh are on a collision course and this fight probably wont go the distance.Shayne Singleton is a quiet man by nature, a tough man from the old Lancashire industrial area of Colne, a 40 minute drive away from the Arena. Speaking with British Boxers, Shayne looks back at a heated press conference in which he and his dance partner on Saturday, ratcheted up the aggression levels in the customary head to head. “I knew it would kick off” Shayne told us, with a sense of knowing in his voice. “He’s underestimating me because of the Skeete fight, I knew he’d try to unsettle me”
Singleton is coming off a loss to Bradley Skeete, a man who now looks for a world title fight. But in an honest moment Shayne explained that he was “killing himself to make 10 stone 7” insisting, “the move up in weight will benefit me, I’ll be fit and strong and punch harder than he can handle”McDonagh himself has never been one to take a back step, he has mixed it with the best in the country with impressive wins over Michael Gomez and Curtis Woodhouse to name just a couple of prize scalps. His record does not to him justice and to his credit Singleton told us that “I respect him, he’s no journeyman, he’s a brave and tough fighter but I really believe in my heart that I will stop him late”
Shayne also added “He’s been calling me a bottle job but believe me I’m no bottler and you’ll see that on Saturday night”
A tantalising bout between a man in Singleton who needs to get back on track and a man in McDonagh who has promised to retire should he loose on Saturday. With both fighters predicting a stoppage, I’d make sure you clear the bar when this one’s on! Good fight in prospect here people! – MORE BOXING NEWS
