RISING MONAGHAN STAR Aaron McKenna will seek his ninth consecutive professional victory in less than two weeks’ time after the teenager’s next bout was confirmed for Fantasy Springs Casino later this month.

The 20-year-old’s next fight will take place on Thursday 18 July in California, to be broadcast live on DAZN, and will headline Jason Quigley’s meeting with Tureano Johnson.

“It’s great to be back in action so soon,” McKenna said. “I like to stay hungry and work hard in the gym so that I’m always ready.

“My next fight I will be even sharper and I’m looking forward to putting on a strong performance for my Irish, Mexican and American fans. See you all on 18 July.”

McKenna’s opponent is yet to be confirmed but the Irish boxing star is hoping to fight at least three more times before the end of this year.

He overcame Mexico’s Daniel Perales with a dominant victory inside just two rounds a fortnight ago at Fantasy Springs Casino, moving his record to 8-0 as his fledgling professional career continues to soar.
