Stephen Quinn literally followed in his fathers footsteps when making his pro debut earlier this year but now the Belfast youngster wants to emulate the likes of Martin Rogan by fighting in front of and impressing big Belfast crowds.
Quinn junior opened his career in the same manner his father finished his with victory over Del Roy Spencer and now makes his second paid outing on the under card of ‘The Iron Man’s’ return with Matt Skelton.
The Belfast youngster upgrades from the Holiday Inn hotel and a couple of hundred people to the Kings Hall and fans in their thousands and he couldn’t be more excited.
“I am over the moon about getting out again. I have been inactive for about 5 months. So I am eager to get going. It is great to get on such a big card. Martin Rogan always pulls in the fans, so it will be a good experience boxing in front of so many people. I am really looking forward to this one.”
Ulster’s latest fight novice fights in the Kings Hall on the under card of the two 40 plus veteran’s rematch on November 12, but is unsure of who he will face just yet.
There is talk of a rematch with Del Roy Spencer, a fighter most pundits admit is a difficult debut test, but Quinn would prefer a new test.
The Newtownard’s prospect isn’t getting ahead of himself, however and also preached off the one fight at a time hymn sheet.
“There has been talk of me fighting Delroy again. I don’t really mind who I am coming up against, but I would rather get someone different. Hopefully I will be a lot more active over the next while, but the only goal is to take each fight as it comes and keep winning,” Quinn added before revealing his training camp has proved a real family affair.
“My dads been working with me and everything is going great. I have been doing a bit of strength and conditioning with John McGahey. He put a lot of time into me and he works me hard. Hopefully it all pays off.”
