Nathan Kelly (9-3) vs Jack Maguire (5-0) Featherweight title fight (11-2-17)
“I got into the sport just because my two brothers were doing it at the time and one day my younger brother put me in my place so I started training the next day so it would never happen again
When asked who hes biggest inspiration was Maguire replied: “My biggest inspiration has to be Nathan Kelly, a true role model. Sure if you don’t know by now, the mans a living legend!”
“Being a fighter is pretty damn awesome, I would never have thought I’d be where I am now about 3 years ago. And I’m thankful I started training and taking it seriously because there hasn’t been anything more rewarding.”
What separates you from the rest of the division? “I think if there’s anything that separates me from others is my work ethic and sheer stubbornness. I am relatively new to the fighting ranks and for what I’ve done in the last year is a reflection of my training and training partners ”
“My dream fight would be against Khabib Nurmagomedov. I would just love to feel the pressure he applies and see how long I survive for. I’d like to be remembered for my mediocre looks and above average smile ”
This is another super fight on another action filled card.
