WEB EXCLUSIVE: Lancashire Boxer Reece Macmillan confident for upcoming bout


Boxing prospect, Reece Macmillan (4-0) is excited for his next bout which he is prepared to make a statement.

He previously fought back in November 2016 when he outpointed Ross Jameson (1-3) in four rounds.

But now in 2017, the 21-year-old has much bigger plans for his career and appears to be confident ahead of his bout.

“I feel more hungry now because it’s a brand new year and I set a name for myself,” said Macmillan.

“I’ve got the best team in the world and we’re trying as much as much we can to increase my name out there.

“I’ve only gained little sponsorship attention but I reckon as time goes on I’ll be getting more deals with several media outlets.”

With four victories already in the bag and one knockout win, the Lancashire-based also intends to increase his activity level this year and take on numerous bouts.

“I’m only four wins up at the moment and one of my targets of this year is to fight as much times as I can and be more consistent and active,” he said.

 “I’m a lot more stylistic in terms of my versatility in the ring and I can guarantee you that this fight won’t be going past two rounds. That’s for sure.”

Trainer John Donaghy, who coaches the junior-welterweight prospect believes his fighter has developed his style by training in different fighting codes.

“Since he’s been with us we have managed to train him differently and show him some new things,” said trainer Donaghy.

“Boxing is all about adapting and with us he’s managed to sacrifice a lot of things such as family time and socialising with friends.

“He’s working hard and focused constantly to what we tell him and follow the orders correctly.

Macmillan has faith in his fighter and predicts he will win his upcoming fight, stating: “He’s all good to go. That’s all there is to it. He will walk to victory.”

His next bout will be taking place at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on April 14th 2017.
