DUMBARTON boxer Martin Harkin hopes to put on a good show in front of the TV cameras when he faces James Gorman tonight.
The 24-year-old will be on the undercard for Scott Allan’s title fight against Kash Farooq at St Andrew’s Sporting Club in Glasgow.
And Harkin is looking forward to what will be his second bout since turning professional.
He said: “This is my first time in front of the cameras, so I’ll hopefully put in a good performance.
“A few of my friends and family are going but the rest of them are going to watch it on the TV.
“But it’s good to get the support of people that are spending their hard earned money to come and watch.”
Harkin will be fighting at the St Andrew’s Sporting Club’s famous Burns Night Show tonight, with the show starting at 9.30pm on STV Glasgow.
And after claiming a comfortable victory against Mchal Vosyka in his first fight back in October, he is looking to push on with his boxing career.
His traners Danny Lee and Grant McAuley at the Greenock Boxing Club were pleased with how his first fight as a professional went.
And Harkin says his training has been good in the build up to tonight's fight.
Harkin added: “There was things that I did that were really well, and there were things that could have been better.
“My main priority in boxing is not to take any punches, so I always focus on my defence, and my trainers were happy enough and we’re always seeing boxing no matter how many fights or how much experience you’ve got you’re always learning.
“It’s one of those sports where you are constantly trying to evolve and be the best version of yourself.
“It’s [training] been brilliant. I feel good, this will be my second pro fight so I’m confident.”
