SHAUN MCSHANE IS feeling ‘confident’ as he prepares to fight for the vacant Scottish lightweight title on Friday night.
McShane faces Eddie Doyle at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, where he goes in search of the belt.
McShane, 3-2-1 from his six pro contests, defeated Tyrone native Ben Mulligan in November and the 35-year-old former Dungloe ABC puncher is leaving nothing to chance.
“Camp went well, I had good sparring and I’m training twice a day, six days a week,” McShane told Donegal Sport Hub.
“I’ve had to do that because this is a ten-round fight. Doyle is well experienced and has been here before.
“I’m stepping up a weight, too, so it’ll not be easy by any means.”
Doyle has considerably more experience than McShane with a record of 16-3-0 in 19 bouts.
McShane said: “It’s not going to be easy. The two of us will have to work hard, but I’m feeling confident. I know I’ve the work done so it’s all about doing it on the night now.”
