‘NOBODY IN BRITAIN LIKE ME’ – PETER MCGRAIL HAS NEXT FIGHT CONFIRMED
5 months ago

Peter McGrail believes no other fighter in Britain boxes like he does as he reveals his title plan for later in the year.

The Liverpool fighter returns to action on July 17, at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland as part of a Phil Jeffries promotion.

McGrail has been in dazzling form since progressing from the amateur ranks and says after he comes through his Sunderland assignment, he will be ready for the first title fight of his pro career, which he hopes will be in front of his home fans in Liverpool. 

The 26-year-old’s style has already seen him draw comparisons with the brilliant Vasyl Lomachenko and while the super bantamweight says there are fighters on the world stage, who box like he does, few in his homeland compare.

I don’t think there is anyone in Britain who boxes like I do,” McGrail said.

“I have similarities to some fighters on the world stage, for example people call me the ‘Scouse Lomachenko’ and I can see some similarities with the way Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez uses angles.

“But in Britain, I don’t think there is anyone like me, especially not around my weight.”

The buzz around McGrail is growing with each fight and he hopes to have more fans on board by the time he has left the North East, next month.

“It’s great to be fighting in a new city and I’m going to use the opportunity to win a few more fans,” McGrail said. 

“I’ll be using this fight in Sunderland as a warm-up for a return to Liverpool later in the year and I am pushing for that to be a title fight. 

“I’m 26 and there is no point in waiting around.  I did pretty much all I could do in the amateur game and so far in the pros, I am beating my opponents comfortably.  So, it is time to push on and hopefully I can set up that title fight landing another KO, at the Stadium of Light.”
