Neilson boxing presents Jack McGann headlining York Hall for the inaugural IBO European super-welterweight title against Lazlo Toth.
McGann’s rollercoaster fight with John Brennan last April was my highlight of 2022, but Jack would also go on to headline his beloved hometown of Liverpool for the first time as a pro at the Shankly Hotel in September. Both fight nights were brought to us courtesy of Neilson Boxing and Warren Boxing Management, who played host to scouse Hollywood royalty, Stephen Graham on both occasions.
Jack Mcgann Headlines A Neilson Boxing Card
Jack will be hoping for a fourth knockout on the trot against Toth, but the Hungarian represents by far, the stiffest challenge to McGann’s fledgling career to date. With 31 wins including 19 knockouts and distance losses to Kerman Lejarraga and Vyachselav Senchenko (who knocked out Ricky Hatton). McGann is a guaranteed all-action fighter, so I can’t see this one going on for the scheduled 10 championship rounds.
A classic York Hall match-up is provided for the chief support. Harry Mullins, son of Churchill’s gym owner Sam, goes for the Southern area flyweight title against Paul Roberts. Mullins has had just 6 fights, 2 of which were rematches against journeymen. But he is also unbeaten, and boxes with a ringcraft beyond his mere 20 years old age.
Billy Underwood takes on John Brennan. Rod Julian’s charge, Underwood, emphatically dispatched Tommy Jacobs in his last fight and got his first KO in his fifth professional fight. The bout is an eliminator for the Southern Area middleweight title.
Louis Horn is also in a tough clash, going up against fellow prospect, Josh Nelson, in just his fourth fight. Lastly of note, Courtney Bennett and Amar Kayani both look to stay busy and active, following their previous outings on a Masood Abdulah show last December. Expect a momentum-charged 2023 for the pair.
