Cambuslang boxer Jordan McCorry is looking to add the WBO European title to his Scottish super featherweight and lightweight titles.
McCorry faces Lyon Woodstock on the undercard of the Lee Selby v Josh Warrington title fight at Elland Road in Leeds.
McCorry fought five times last year culminating in a Commonwealth title elimination bout against Abraham Ndamendapo. McCorry likes to stay active and had this to say about his elimination bout,”Yeah, of course I want to be kept busy as possible so I can always be ready for a fight.
“It was a good event to be a part of. It was very different from anything in the pro game because it was Team UK v Team Africa so it was kind of like the way the amateur boxing works out but it was good to be involved in. I didn’t really know much of my opponent so your going into a bit of the unknown but thought it was a smart and decent performance for getting the call with only two weeks notice. Of course I would love a shot for the commonwealth title, hopefully down the line.”
Having won not one but two Scottish titles, at different weights, McCorry was happy with such an achievement and reflects on winning the super featherweight title against Jamie McGuire .
“It’s always good to win the title of your country at one weight never mind two so it’s a great achievement. Yeah I enjoyed it. It was a nasty fight, I never boxed to plan got involved in a war and I am a lot better than that but the atmosphere was dynamite.”
McCorry is looking ahead to his biggest fight to date, fighting on a big card at a football stadium.
“Yeah it’s a fight that I have been wanting, so glad we could get it on. For me it’s a good 50/50 so will be tasty. To be honest I haven’t really watched anything of him, I leave that up to trainer Craig Dickson aka Dicko! It’s an amazing card to be involved in especially fighting at Elland road, it will be class, the atmosphere will be electric.”
MTK Global have been signing up a lot if UK and Irish talent, McCorry being just one to move to the stable, he enjoys bring part of MTK.
“It’s the best thing I have done, moving to MTK, they get you the fights, always got good shows. So it’s class to be involved with MTK.”
Some boxers get into the sport to get away from trouble in the street but it was McCorry’s mum who got him into boxing to aid his football!
“My mum sent me to boxing to try and toughen me for football but as soon as I got my first fight I was hooked and that’s been it ever since, haha”
What does the future hold?
“Win more titles, be involved in good fights and fight on the best cards!”
