MGM return to Ireland this weekend and, ahead of the massive ‘Second Coming’ show at the National Stadium, irish-boxing.com is profiling all the Irish fighters who will be in action.
Here we look at one of the most eye-catching boxer’s around – Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner [6(4)-0].
Sporting a new trim physique, Turner will be looking to show the improvements he has made in Marbella on Saturday night at the National Stadium.
The popular Dubliner packs a vicious punch, first becoming an internet sensation with his debut KO, then impressing on his TV debut in July. A former elite amateur, Turner is targeting big fights in the paid ranks – and a fight with Martin Rogan has already been mooted
First however, the 24 year old heavyweight faces 6’6″ Gabor Farkas this weekend – and it will be interesting to see how the Irishman deals with Hungarian man-mountain, who has previously fought Dillian Whyte and World title challenger Johann Duhaupas.
As always with Turner, don’t blink because his fights can end any second.
Watch some of Big Sexy’s big knockouts below and get excited for Saturday:
Sean Turner -v- Zoltan Elekes
Sean Turner -v- Istvan Ruzsinszky
Sean Turner -v- Peter Erdos
Sean Turner -v- Igors Borucha (where he actually went the distance!)
Tickets are available from the boxers involved and ticketmaster.ie. ‘Second Coming’’ will also be shown exclusively live on Boxnation from 5pm (Sky channel 437).
