Yesterday we reported that David Avanesyan is interested in a match with Michael McKinson, who called him names recently. McKinson received news yesterday that made him very happy because the great Armenian said he would accept a match with him.
We have to admit that we were also pleased by the fact that this match is now very likely and will surely please the entire boxing public. “I don’t care. I accept any fight that a fair offer is made for, full stop.
What excites me about McKinson is he has shouted me out, he wants it and that has been a rare thing in the UK these last few years” Avanesyan said in this interview with BoxingScene.
McKinson wants to take a step forward in his career with this match
After his loss last August against Vergil Ortiz, McKinson was looking for a high-ranking fighter in order to have a big fight and regain his credibility.
This very high-quality fighter has had a couple of matches and victories recently, but they were all less popular and lower-quality fighters, so those victories are not that important as far as his position on the world stage is concerned.
This fighter, who is already 29 years old, recently called out the experienced Armenian Avanesyan, and after the Armenian said that he was ready for a match with him, McKinson was very impressed. “Last year I went to America twice.
I boxed Vergil Ortiz and although I lost, I gave a good account of myself. Since then, the level of opposition I’ve faced, well, I haven’t really wanted to be in the ring with them,” McKinson told BoxingScene. “I deserve to be in the ring with the likes of Avanesyan.
After my last fight I respectfully called him out. I know a lot of people aren’t queuing up to fight David - as well as myself - so I feel like if we can get it on it shows to the rest of the British fighters that we’re real men.
"There are lot that want to steer clear of us and a lot that want to be wrapped in bubble wrap but we have to do it the hard way so it’ll be a good fight to make”. “He’s a very dangerous fighter. He’s very feared fighter but it’s not so much what I think of these fighters, it’s what I believe I can do. I believe I’m better than domestic level, 100%. There’s a reason nobody is calling either of us out.
